Fern­hill pupils have a blast at fun day

Rutherglen Reformer - - Primary Onesto - Jonathan Ged­des

Fern­hill School re­cently held a popular fun day - al­though some teach­ers found them­selves get­ting an icy sur­prise.

The event saw plenty of events and things to do for pupils and par­ents alike, with a tasty BBQ prov­ing a hit.

How­ever the most popular event on the day was the ice bucket chal­lenge, where young­sters paid for the chance to soak their favourite (or least favourite) mem­ber of staff

Among the many at­trac­tions on of­fer were bouncy cas­tles, an in­flat­able slide, merry-gor­ound, face paint­ing, nail bar, glit­ter tat­toos and plenty of ice cream to eat for good mea­sure.

Dr Laura Mur­phy, Head Teacher of Fern­hill School, was pleased with how the day had gone.

She told the Re­former: “Once again the pupils, par­ents and friends of Fern­hill School, past and present, have demon­strated the friend­ships and sense of com­mu­nity that per­me­ates our school.

“The wa­ter chal­lenge un­der­taken by the staff was a true re­flec­tion of the fact that on this day, when we come to­gether as a fam­ily, we are all pre­pared to par­tic­i­pate in any way we can to en­sure ev­ery­one has a great day out.

“We look for­ward with ex­cite­ment to next years’ event and an­tic­i­pate it will be big­ger and bet­ter than ever.

“Fern­hill School would like to thank their PTA and their gen­er­ous spon­sors for their help in mak­ing the day a great suc­cess.”
