Pupils at Calder­wood Pri­mary en­joyed all the fun of the fair at their an­nual sum­mer bash – and they were de­lighted to raise a record-break­ing amount for the school’s cof­fers.

Af­ter ev­ery last penny and pound had been counted, the par­ent coun­cil was de­lighted to an­nounce that a new record profit for the sum­mer fair had been raised –£5,863.82.

Vis­i­tors en­joyed a fab­u­lous day of fun,games, mu­sic, face paint­ing, home bak­ing and much more.

Amaz­ing raf­fle prizes had been won and the teddy tombola saw a lot of furry friends find their for­ever home. All of the money raised ben­e­fits the pupils and this year it helped to­wards a huge book band­ing project for the en­tire school which has fur­nished young­sters with amaz­ing new read­ing ma­te­ri­als.

Jayne Swan­son, chair of the par­ent coun­cil said:“Yet again we are over­whelmed by the sup­port we re­ceive from par­ents, school staff, the lo­cal com­mu­nity and busi­nesses and our vol­un­teers who make the magic hap­pen.

“It is al­ways a fun day and the fact that so much money is raised to help our school in so many ways, makes all the plan­ning so worth­while.”
