On Friday the 24th of March we had lots of fun and games going on in Sgoil a’ Bhac. We raised a staggering £473.00 for the 2017 Comic Relief Appeal. Pupil Council would like to thank everyone who contributed. You can see from the pictures below some of the things we got up to.
G1-2 did a water focused topic at the beginning of Term 3. The children suggested giving money to children in deprived countries who don’t have clean water to drink. As a class we decided to do a sponsored walk and silence to raise money for UNICEF. The children walked 2.2 miles this morning and then participated in a silence for 1 hour 20 mins!! Didn’t they do well! Some parents joined us for the walk and Finlay’s dad drove the support car for us. We are overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity…..we have raised almost £600!!!
We started at the school!
Some of the parents joined us!
We had coffee and cake once we had finished.
Just finished the silence. Well done!!
The pupils and staff of Sgoil a’ Bhac had great fun marking Red Nose Day today. As well as selling red noses and dressing up for the day, we held a bake sale and had a Staff v Pupils football match. The staff won the day with a close 5-4 victory!
Thank you to everyone who contributed time, effort, baking and money today. We’ll announce a total early next week wen all the money has been counted.
The children in EP7 have created a beautiful hamper full of Fair-trade goodies as part of their learning during Fair-trade Fortnight. This is an enterprise project that also ties in with their social studies topic on the rainforest. Letters have been sent home with children today that allow parents and others to purchase tickets. They will also be on sale to children during morning break in the crush hall. The tickets cost £1 per strip, with all profits going to the Fair-trade Foundation. We would like to thank everyone in advance for supporting our enterprise.
Last week, we had a visit from Mr DR Macdonald from Bethesda Hospice to collect a cheque for £428.38.
This was a presentation of the funds raised at Christmas time through the raffle of the cake made by our former cook, Mary Stewart and from the silver collection on the concert night.
We’d like to thank everyone who gave so generously to this cause.
God is Good Nursery School, Uganda
With the help of Mrs Macrae, pupils organised a non-uniform day and bake sale in aid of the ‘God is Good’ nursery school in Uganda.
Ishbal Mackenzie came to the school to collect a cheque for £245.40 for their appeal to support the Ugandan school.
Once again, we’d like to thank the children and parents who contributed to this very worthy cause.
Ellie Macdonald and Erin Macleod from GP7 organised a special bake sale to raise funds to support a Cerebral Palsy charity. They worked very hard to prepare their baking and it was very well received by the pupils when they held their sale at break-time today. They raised an hugely impressive £180.00 for their charity.
Gaelic 4/5 planned and organised a Mad Hair day and encouraged all pupils and staff to support the fundraising event.
