GFG Update for 2019-2020

We thought we would let you know what the GFG has raised so far this session, with the help from parents, grandparents, friends and family.

We have raised nearly £3000 for Gargieston Primary and ECC! We added £3000 from last session to this sum and it has paid for…

School – The Active Literacy Project resources; the outdoor clock installation; a contribution towards the Christmas parties.

ECC -Outdoor learning equipment and materials; books for Christmas presents.

We have organised a variety of events so far in order to raise these funds to purchase the equipment and resources. The events organised by the GFG have been:

Summer Sizzler Fun Day – £304.14                                                                Hallowe’en Disco – £746.78                                                                                  Christmas mugs, cushions etc. – £332.67                                                          Christmas tea towels – £359.00                                                                            Photographs – £960.00

P 4 – 7 Orienteering After School Club

Mr Smith and Mrs Mackie will be running an after school orienteering Club  for primaries 4 – 7 , on Tuesday 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st of March from 3.15pm to 4.15pm.

This is for pupils who are interested in attending the orienteering training evenings in April and May and also wish to be entered into the orienteering festival.  Gargieston has always done very well at orienteering events and we would love to maintain this.  We would love to see some new faces coming along to the club as well as pupils who have been before.

Thank you for your help!
