Hall right now for school

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Jonathan Ged­des

There was sum­mer fun in the air at Hall­side Pri­mary re­cently.

Friends of Hall­side were host­ing their an­nual fam­ily fun day, and it was a great hit with kids and adults alike.

The sun shone on the day, which in­cluded to­ken prize stalls, dis­plays, lo­cal busi­ness stalls, face-paint­ing, a visit from the fire brigade and a chance for young­sters to get their hair coloured in.

There was also a visit from lo­cal cop Richard Sam­son, while some mem­bers of staff were brave enough to risk be­ing soaked by sponges.

And there were demon­stra­tions of karate and zumba too.

The spe­cial guests were the Glas­gow Science Cen­tre On Tour Team plus DJ Wil­lie Hill who pri­v­ided the mu­sic while 30 peo­ple went home with raf­fle prizes.

The to­tal amount raised was £2381.51.

One of the chief or­gan­is­ers was par­ent, and Friends of Hall­side mem­ber, Gil­lian Glass­ford, who said: “It was a fan­tas­tic event!

“See­ing the kids hav­ing a great day means all our or­gan­is­ing paid off.”

Head Teacher Gil­lian Rus­sell added: “The money raised is fan­tas­tic and will re­ally help us with our pro­ject to de­velop our li­brary.”

“How­ever, the real suc­cess was see­ing our wider school com­mu­nity com­ing to­gether to have fam­ily fun.”
