Today we had a fun run wearing bright and sporty clothes to raise money for both Children in Need and the Janice Jamieson Memorial Trust to sponsor the education of a student in Malawi.
At the time of writing we are delighted to have raised the sum of £341. If anyone has not yet brought in a donation and would still like to contribute, we can still add more money to the total next week. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone for supporting these charities and for our young people for wearing their bright, sporty outfits and for showing such enthusiasm in participating in today’s event.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to Mr Drennan, the Sports Department and Sports Leaders of Dalbeattie High School. Today, we were not only able to use all the High School facilities but Mr Drennan and the Sports Leaders also organised warms ups for all the children before we made our way our onto the athletics track for running several laps. Some children managed quite a number of laps. Everyone enjoyed this ‘fun’ morning which proved to be a great start to a Friday morning.
Later in the day Mrs Duncan held two assemblies for Primary 1-4 and P5-7 where there was a focus on these charities. we were also joined by Rev mark Smith.
