Dons Day Out

A big thank you to all the Ferryhill School parents and children who came along to the Dons Day Out at Pittodrie on Sunday 24th May.  It was such a fun family occasion and, although the Dons didn’t win the match, everyone looked like they were having a great time.  We also raised £385 for school funds due to AFC donating 50% of the ticket sales which is fantastic!  Big thanks to Shiona Denton for organising this event.

Thank you,

Ferryhill School PTA

School May Fair – Total Raised

The school May Fair on Saturday 30th May raised ….. drum roll please ……. £4650!!!!!!!!!!

It’s an absolutely outstanding amount, a school record and means we should have enough to buy that vital set of iPads needed.

It was an amazing team effort so a massive thanks to everyone involved in whatever capacity…THANK YOU!!!

Several of those who helped are P7 parents, fair stalwarts, and it was their last fair, so thank you for your efforts over the years!

Everything raised will be spent on making our children’s learning experience a great one, and yesterday just highlights what a fantastic community spirit we have at Ferryhill, long may it continue!

A big thank you to all those who supported our recent ‘Archie in Africa’ day.  £263 was raised to support the building and resourcing of a children’s operating theatre in Uganda.  Pupils enjoyed taking their teddies to school dressed in the Ugandan flag colours.  As part of their  their global citizenship education a  representative from The Archie Foundation delivered an interesting Assembly all about Ugandan hospitals.  A small plaque with the school name on will be displayed on the operating theatre’s wall.
