On Wednesday 21st March 2017 The Social Committee Hosted a Successful Beetle Drive for Grandparents and Friends. Our visitors brought photos to share with us, which were really interesting. We enjoyed getting to know our visitors, guessing which one they were in their school photos and getting to see what our visitors looked like when they were our age. A big thank you to everyone who came and made our afternoon special and fun.
On the 6th of December 2016 the group of P7 pupils completed a cold and frosty 4.8 mile sponsored walk around the East of the Canal. They raised a fantastic £140 pounds for their working float. Pupils decided to give the extra £40 to the Archie Foundation with the next fundraising event.
On Friday 27th of January 2017 the pupils completed a bag pack at the local Telford Street Co-op and raised an amazing £248.76, thanks to the generosity of the Co-op and their customers.
On Wednesday 1st of February 2017 they met Laura MacIntosh from the Archie Foundation and pupils were delighted to be able to hand over £288.76 to help improve the lives of sick children and their families in the Highlands.
