Last term, the Primary 6 pupils participated in a sponsored silence to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Trust.  The pupils remained tight-lipped for one and a half hours and managed to raise £647.64!!

Now the silence is over and we want to SHOUT about their achievement. In fact their work was so impressive that even the local paper wanted to SHOUT about it too!


Congratulations Primary 6!
