Fayre day for James Aiton
All the fun of the fayre came to James Aiton Primary as hundreds flocked to the school grounds for a fund-raising extravaganza.
Five hundred people turned out in force to support the late-summer fayre which raised nearly £2700 for the school.
Heavy downpours failed to dampen the spirits of the crowds who took part in various activities – from dance classes to karate and basketball.
The‘Bricks for Kids’initiative encouraged youngsters to be creative with Lego bricks.
Also on offer was an assault course, a bouncy castle and even a fire brigade display.
“We were delighted with the turn-out,”said Carol Gerrard, member of the parent council, who also thanked Tesco, Morrisons and everyone who had helped out.
The school have purchased ipads and equipment with the proceeds of previous fund-raising events. The funds raised at the most recent event will contribute towards the development of cookery courses. New head teacher Kerry McGhee has also introduced communication diaries so that parents and teachers can comment on pupils’progress.
