Christmas Fayre – We Need Your Help

We need volunteers to help set up the Fayre on Friday night and also to run the fayre on Saturday.  We only have 16 volunteers so far and require at least 40.  If anyone can spare an hour or two please contact Janet Olverman, email:  janet.olverman@ntlworld.com or 07852202416.

We also need a couple of volunteers to help the janitor put away the tables after the fayre, otherwise we will be charged for the hire of a second janitor.

We require donations for:
Nearly New Toys & Books – good quality only please
Tombola – both adult and children’s
Home Baking – please bring to school on Friday evening or Saturday morning during setting up.

Please could you drop donations into the school during week commencing 30th November.

Thank you for your support – let’s make this a fabulous fayre to be proud of and raise lots of money for the benefit of all the children at Mearns Primary.



Celebrating St Andrew’s Day

Children are invited to wear an item or accessory of tartan on Monday, 30 November to celebrate St Andrew’s Day and to support the PTA.  On this day, the PTA is providing shortbread for all the pupils and would ask for a donation in return to help support the Christmas Fayre event.
