Sr Lucy Kurien, a Catholic nun who founded and runs the Maher Project in India for disadvantaged women and children, visited our school on September 9th to tell us about all the work that she does. Sr Lucy collected a cheque for £1000 which we raised by bringing a donation, on our school Feast Day, to dress in our own clothes! A huge thank you to everyone for such a marvellous response.
Please put the date in your diary and come along and enjoy the event. It is a great way for the whole family to be part of a large school community. There will be lots of stalls and activities. The tea room will also have hot dogs and ice cream on sale!

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.
