All money raised through sponsorship in our annual Sponsored Walk has now been banked. A huge thank you to everyone – pupils, parents, relatives, friends and others – in our school community who has contributed in any way. Over £9000 was raised this year which is excellent. This money contributes to our School Fund which pays for all of our Extra / Wider Curricular Activities, funds our School Minibus, and allows us to significantly off-set the cost of Activities Days for pupils in S1 to S3. Recently school funds have also assisted us in purchasing iPads and other equipment across the school too.
Shiel Take House Points Lead
The money raised is converted into House Points too. Shiel and Laggan Houses have done well with Shiel now in the lead and Laggan moving up into third place.
Well done to Mrs Robertson’s 2S Class which raised the most money overall – £571 in total. They will receive a prize of cinema and pizza or similar activity shortly. Well done too to Emily Hunter (3T1) who raised the most money – £111 in total. This is an amazing figure and if replicated across the school would see over £80,00 raised for school funds.
The school is indebted to the generosity in our community for their contributions to this and also for all our charitable work which is significant in the run up to Christmas. Next week we support Children in Need and this will be followed in December by our Annual Hamper Appeal.
