We are delighted to announce that our Gala held last Saturday made a huge profit of over £4000! A big thank you to everyone who attended, to all the parent helpers, teachers who came along to help, everyone who donated raffle prizes, gifts and home baking.
Special thanks to our sponsors Nicol Estate Agents for supporting our event, and for donating the Ipad for the raffle’s top prize.
Thanks to Councillor Jim Swift who once again performed wonderfully as our Beat the Goalie. Big thanks to Mark the Janitor and his wife Linda whom we kept busy with setting up and cleaning up afterwards. Thanks to Kate and Scott Telfour for supplying the advertising banner and once again for placing it around Newton Mearns!
Thanks to Saj and Shahid Sadiq for providing all the delicious Subway sandwiches, and to all the fantastic bakers out there who donated some sensational home baking.
The chocolate cake bake off was another great success, and we had 2 winners – best novelty cake and best tasting cake. These were won by Eilidh Thomson and Laura Osbourne. A Big thank you to Jim Swift who picked the novelty cake winner, and to our very strict tasting panel consisting of teachers Mrs McDougall, Mrs Sinclair and Mrs Uprichard who had the “enviable” task of tasting 14 chocolates cakes and picking a winner!
The top prizewinners in the raffle were as follows:
1st prize – An Ipad Air, won by Ian Cant
2nd prize – An ipad mini, won by Robert Crerar
3rd prize – £100 cash, won by Mrs Malik
4th prize – £50 cash, won by Claire Gallacher.
The parent council has now allocated £2000 to the school for outdoor playground equipment and Friday fun toys and games, and £630 for teacher’s class supplies.
All our fundraising events are organized with the same aim – to support and benefit all our children at Kirkhill – so thank you to everyone who helped make the Gala another Kirkhill success.
