Thank You


This afternoon we welcomed pupils from St Joseph’s and Busby primary schools to our whole school assembly.

They presented  a cheque to the school for £240.
The girls raised the money during the summer holidays by holding a tombola, cake stall, arts & crafts and lots of other activities.
They certainly put their holiday to good use.

What a great achievement girls and everyone at Isobel Mair School say a great big  thank you to you all!
