The Christmas Fair was a great success – well attended and a very warm and festive atmosphere. We raised over £1500, which will go towards our school library (Liberton Primary School does not currently have a lending library, and the parents’ association are in the process of setting one up), outdoor lighting and sports kit. In addition to this, the two P6 classes also ran their own stalls to fundraise for their P7 camp at Benmore next year. And, in lieu of an admission cost this year, we collected donations amounting to £400 for the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre – University of Nottingham, which is the charity nominated by the family of a dearly-loved P7 pupil who very sadly passed away last month. His memory was very much at the heart of our Christmas Fair this year.
We always try to run a very low-cost, inclusive fair so that all the Liberton Primary families can participate and enjoy it. It means our profits tend to be relatively low compared to some schools, but we’re very proud of the warmth and community spirit of our primary school, and donations like yours really do make a huge difference. Thank you so much, again, for the Vegware cups.
