Banavie pupils spring into ac­tion for funds

The Oban Times - - Districts -

BANAVIE Pri­mary School pupils have been rais­ing funds for a trip to The Shiel­ing Pro­ject.

The pri­mary seven young­sters held a spring tea and open day to help fund their stay at the pro­ject, near Beauly.

With the help of teacher Mrs Har­ley, the young­sters or­gan­ised the event, put out in­vi­ta­tions, ar­ranged home-bak­ing and served the par­ents.

Some pupils wore bow ties for the oc­ca­sion and there were spring flow­ers for sale on the day.

The event raised £ 350 to­wards the trip and head teacher Max­ean Dun­ham said the chil­dren had a mar­vel­lous time at the event.

Based in Struy, near Beauly, The Shiel­ing Pro­ject al­lows young­sters to ex­pe­ri­ence the tra­di­tional life­style and prac­tices of liv­ing on high ground with live­stock over sum­mer, in­clud­ing stock­ing up on peat and dyes and mak­ing but­ter and cheese.
