Stu­dents shine bright for char­ity

East Kilbride News - - NEWS -

Young­sters at an East Kil­bride pri­mary school shone on stage while rais­ing funds to sup­port vi­tal char­ity work re­cently.

St Louise Pri­mary’s fan­tas­tic tal­ent show, or­gan­ised solely by the en­ter­pris­ing pri­mary seven pupils, was part of Len­ten fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties – with a three-fig­ure sum gen­er­ated.

Teacher Lor­raine Clarke told the News:“The chil­dren or­gan­ised the au­di­tions for the fi­nal acts, the cer­tifi­cates, the prizes, the mu­sic and props needed, the prizes and even wrote hi­lar­i­ous scripts.

“Pupils’pre­sent­ing skills were sec­ond to none.

“And they en­cour­aged the smaller chil­dren to par­tic­i­pate, demon­strat­ing their won­der­ful nur­tur­ing skills.

“All the pupils and staff in the school were thor­oughly en­ter­tained by the wealth of tal­ent from the pupils in the school and they raised £135.”

The to­tal amount raised from ac­tiv­i­ties and events was £500.

This fig­ure will be split be­tween the char­i­ties Let the Chil­dren Live and Scot­tish Catholic In­ter­na­tional Aid Fund (SCIAF).
