We have had a great festive term here at Dunrossness.
The Carol Concert was fantastic, the classes all sang beautifully. The mulled apple juice and mince pies were a hit too.
Thank you once again for your support for our fundraising efforts.
Pupil Christmas Cards – £273
Donations at Carol Concert – £124.76
Christmas Card Deliveries – £350.20
In addition to this we also donated £109.64 to Save the Children for our Christmas Jumper Day.
Wishing you all a lovely festive break and look forward to seeing you all next year!
We will be holding our annual fundraiser on Saturday 9th November from 10.30-12.00.
There will be saasarmeat and bacon rolls, homebakes, stalls, puzzles, games as well as our hampers raffle.
This year we are raising money to improve the acoustics in the hall. Currently there is nothing to absorb the sound, meaning it can be a very noisy place during lunch times and lessons.
The P7 Enterprisers will be selling their wares to raise money for their Loch Insh trip or staycation.
We will have a Scholastic Book Fair at Parents’ Evenings. There will be lots of excellent books on sale.
On Friday 14th it is Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day. We are taking part in Dunrossness School. Please encourage your child to wear their Christmas Jumpers and make a small donation to the appeal. We suggest 50p.
The staff will also donate to wear their festive jumpers. This year we will also donate our collection from the staff Secret Santa and Fruity Friday profits for that day.
Thanks for your support.

Dunrossness Primary School Coffee Morning (2)
Thank you so very much for all your support at our Coffee Morning. An overwhelming £1657.50 was raised for school funds.
We have a wonderfully supportive school community and it was great to see so many friends and families at our event.
Save the date for next year! The breakfast rolls will be on the menu again!
Thank you very much for your generosity for both Christmas Jumper Day and school funds.
We raised £302.90 for Save the Children through wearing our Christmas Jumpers, staff Secret Santa and Christmas card donations.
Christmas card deliveries, Christmas Play photos and donations on the door raised an amazing £1348.18 for school funds.
Thank you all very much for your continued support of the school. We couldn’t do it without such a wonderfully supportive school community.
Merry Christmas to you all and the very best wishes for a happy and healthy 2017!
What a super day we have had at school! Everyone has come dressed in their Christmas jumpers to help raise money for ‘Save the Children.’
We have also have a wonderful Christmas lunch. It was excellent to see Caroline back in the kitchen for the day! It was also really good to see so many ex members of staff.
Thanks to everyone for coming. See you all next year!
We would like to say a huge Thank You Very Much to everyone who helped in any way towards the great success of Sunday’s Winter Fair. We have raised £1301.28 for school funds which will go towards resources, trips and visits to enhance the learning experience of all our pupils.
The class hampers were very popular again this year and made excellent prizes. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to these. The children feel a real sense of pride for their hamper.
Thanks to everyone who baked, donated items and helped in the preparations and on the day. For those of you who stayed behind to tidy up, we are very grateful!
We have a really supportive school community without which events like this would not be possible. Thank you again for your commitment and support of the school. It is truly appreciated.
Next year we plan to have our Winter Fundraiser on a Saturday morning. Save the date – Saturday 4th November 2017!
