School summer bash raises pots of cash
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.”
