Fayre day for James Ai­ton

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Niki Ten­nant

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.
