Mother’s Day Gift Sale

Primary 2 happy with their Mother's Day Gifts!

The Pupil Support Assistants have been busy making Mother’s Day gifts for Primary 1-3 to give to their parents.  Staff and friends of staff donated toiletries, face cloths and much more. Gifts were made after school and were sold to the children in Primaries 1 to 3. A total of 12 classes! The children enjoyed coming to the shop and choosing their gift. Thanks to staff and parents for their continual support. A tremendous sum of £509 was raised for charity. This year’s charity was Glasgow Women’s Aid.
