St Andrew’s Primary School have been busy using their enterprising skills to raise money for good causes.

The school’s Pupil Council organised a ‘Bedtime Story Day’ to mark World Book Day. Pupils wore their pyjamas and brought in books to have a book sale, and managed to raise £88.50 to buy new books for the school.

For Comic Relief, the Pupil Council decided that to have a funny face and hair day. This allowed the pupils to show off how creative they can be. They also had red noses for sale, a baking stall and nail-painting.

Primary 1/2 invited the staff to bring in baby photos and ran a ‘Who am I?’ game, where you made a donation and then tried to guess who the photos were of to be in with a chance of winning a prize.

P5/6 organised and ran a raffle, and the staff had some fun too, with a bake-off competition. St Andrew’s managed to raise £210.67 for the charity.

In preparation for Mother’s Day the P4/5 class organised and ran a gift business. A range of gifts were available for the bargain prices of 50p or £1, and the choice included jewellery, soaps, perfumes, candles and flowering plants.

Customers were then given a gift card to write and their gift was wrapped, then later delivered to be taken home for Mother’s Day.

The business successfully managed to deliver all of the gifts and made a profit of £102. The money raised has bought seeds and equipment in order to grow vegetables and flowers in our allotment.

Well done to the children - and staff - of St Andrew’s
