A wonderful Christmas time
Calderwood Primary School’s Christmas Fair raised the fabulous total of £6700.
The Rutherglen school’s annual event drew hundreds of supporters to help swell the coffers.
The fun day is organised by the parent council and all proceeds go towards funding pantos, trips, outings and educational projects for all the school’s pupils.
“It was a fantastic event and hugely successful,” said head teacher Lisa Quinn.
“There is an enormous amount of work goes into organising it all and parent council chairperson Jayne Swanson and her team of 30 to 40 supporters do an amazing job.”
There was a host of stalls and goods on offer as well as raffles and home baking.
“The children had turned one area into a grotto and it was stunningly beautiful,” added Lisa.
All the pupils contributed to the event in some capacity.
Lewis Stevenson busked with his saxophone and there was a presentwrapping service.
The pupil council also arranged its own room to organise secret Santa – open to children only.
“It was fantastic. The youngsters were getting presents for family members and even their pets,” added Lisa.
“In fact, they even bought Christmas gifts for Gus, the school cat.”
Lisa wishes to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the event, including parent council, parents, stallholders, pupils, local businesses and members of the public.
