For earthquake victims
Dress down event with a variety of fun activities
Kind-hearted pupils at a Cambuslang primary school have shown their charitable side by raising money for those affected by the recent earthquakes in Nepal.
James Aiton Primary School held their annual Make a Difference day this month, with he children opting to donate money raised to the Nepal Earthquake Fund.
Children were able to come to school dressed down to enjoy a day packed with fun activities provided by all the class teachers.
These included arts and crafts, games with the chance to win a prize, decorating plant pots and planting seeds and bulbs.
They also had the chance to participate in a dance fitness routine with the school’s very own dance instructor Miss Finnie from Primary 3/4.
Parents were able to get in on the act by recycling old clothes which were added to the school’s Ragbag bin.
Healthy eating was a feature of the day and children enjoyed making and eating their fruit kebabs.
Primary seven not only enjoyed the activities but also ran the face painting for the whole school which included some very artistic designs.
As always the whole school made a difference by participating in the Big Spring Clean.
All classes were out and about the area surrounding the playground brandishing their litter pickers and wearing their bright tabards.
Afterwards, the kids received a well-earned treat donated by Greggs Bakery.
The final total of money raised was £ 376.30.
A school spokesperson said: “A huge thank you to Mrs Laing and Mrs McNiven who helped out on the day.
“Everyone had a fantastic day and are looking forward to next year’s event.”
