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.
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.
Tha iad airson taing a thoirt dhan a h-uile duine a ghabh pairt ann. Abair gu robh seallaidhean annasach ann an Sgoil a’ Bhac an-diugh! Thug sinn a-steach £125 agus tha sinn eagalach toilichte leis an sin.
Our Pupil Council organised a range of different activities to mark this year’s Sport Relief and raise money for this good cause.
They began with a sports activity morning for pupils in P1-3. They had different activity stations set up around the hall and our younger pupils raced round the stations.
This was followed by an afternoon tea for parents and a football tournament for pupils. The winners of the pupil tournament went head-to-head with an elite staff team. After a close contest , the pupils pipped the staff 1-0. All their events combined raised a total of £145.00. Thank you to the Pupil Council, especially Hannah Macleod, who led the organisation of these events.
Congratulations to EP7 who raised just under £200 towards their school trip by organising a movie afternoon. The EP7s did a fantastic job and showed a huge amount of enthusiasm and dedication when organising the event. We would also like to extend our thanks to all of the parents who contributed baking for the day. Your generosity is very much appreciated. Congratulations also go to David Anderson GP5 who won our fantastic chocolate hamper!
EP7 are holding a movie afternoon on Friday 7th March. We will be showing Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. The entry will be £1 per ticket and there will also be a tuck shop before the movie starts. In addition to this we will be selling raffle tickets for a chocolate hamper. These will be priced at 50p per strip. All money raised will go towards the P7 trip in June.
The members of our football team and their parents organised a non-uniform day and bake sale today to raise money for their football trip to the mainland next month. They are still busy selling baking at lunch-time today so we’ll be able to announce a grand total of funds raised on Monday.
The team are photographed here just before opening their stall this morning. Thank you very much to all the parents who donated baking and to all the families across the school who sent in money for the non-uniform day and the baking.
There were some pupils today who chose to dress up rather than down for our non-uniform day!
