Gen­er­ous Whif­flet school­child­ren did their bit for el­derly mem­bers of the com­mu­nity with a fes­tive- themed ex­trav­a­ganza.

St Mary’s Pri­mary hosted a Christ­mas jumper din­ner and pre­sen­ta­tion assem­bly event.

School uni­forms were ditched for the day as the kids dressed in their finest fes­tive at­tire.

Pri­mary Five and Six pupils used the en­ter­tain­ing oc­ca­sion to present staff from the nearby Cen­te­nary care home with sev­eral presents and a cheque for £400.

The funds were raised dur­ing sev­eral school ac­tiv­i­ties and grate­fully ac­cepted by care home ac­tiv­ity co-or­di­na­tor Tracy O’Keefe and res­i­dent He­len McGoogan.

A St Mary’s Pri­mary spokesper­son said: “It was our plea­sure to hand over a range of gifts and a £400 do­na­tion to Cen­te­nary care home.

“We’d like to thank ev­ery­one who do­nated.”
