Cof­fee morn­ing trib­ute to Gir­van teacher Agnes

Ayrshire Post - - Troon News -

Gir­van Pri­mary ded­i­cated their Macmil­lan cof­fee morn­ing last month in hon­our of their long- serv­ing teacher.

Agnes Dun­gavel taught at the school for 29 years but sadly lost her bat­tle with can­cer ear­lier this year.

And the event, run by P6 young­sters, not only re­mem­bered Agnes for her funlov­ing char­ac­ter but also coined in hun­dreds for a good cause.

De­pute head An­drew His­lop said: “We raised an amaz­ing £ 1085.02 thanks to the large turnout and gen­er­ous dona­tions made by ev­ery­one who at­tended.

“It was a beau­ti­ful sunny morn­ing in Gir­van and it was our busiest cof­fee morn­ing to date.

“It was ac­tu­ally a lovely morn­ing all round with a real friendly at­mos­phere, and our P6 pupils and their teach­ers did a great job of or­gan­is­ing things and help­ing them run smoothly.

“I’d like to say a mas­sive thanks to Cather­ine Noble from our school of­fice, and Kerry Bell and her helpers from the par­ent coun­cil, for mak­ing the whole event pos­si­ble.

“A huge thanks also must go to Nes­tle Gir­van for the cof­fee, Morag Kel­man and Kerry Bell for home bak­ing, the cater­ing staff for their help, and Wig­town Rangers Foot­ball Sup­port­ers Club for their gen­er­ous do­na­tion to­wards the event.

“A fi­nal thanks to Agnes’ fam­ily for their sup­port and at­ten­dance on a day which I hope will serve as a pos­i­tive and fond mem­ory.

“As well as all the friends and fam­i­lies of Gir­van Pri­mary and Nurs­ery for sup­port­ing the event.”
