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.

Well done to P3/4 boys and girls who held a successful fundraising event in aid of World Kidney Day.  Parents were treated to tea and cakes and  Ferryhill pupils were able to buy a range of second hand books and toys.  A grand sum of  £700 was raised for this very worthwwhile cause.  A special thanks for all the donations and support from parents and P7 pupils.  Credit must go to the hard work by P3/4T who put in a lot of time and effort in preparing for and running the event as part of their enterprise education.
