P6 Wig Walk!

On Friday 25th September 2015, Murrayfield Primary School took part in a Wig Walk to end Walking Week. The children went out for a community walk on Wednesday and then wore their wigs around the community on Friday. The children ended their walk near the skatepark where they had a chance to run around and play some games.

The children had a great time and really enjoyed wearing their colurful wigs :)
