Teacher Helen Quinn said: “The pupils organised a lot of activities to raise money with the biggest their sponsored triathlon where people had to complete a sponsored read, walk and obstacle course. There was certainly something for everyone to take part in.

"They also had a fun day, a movie afternoon, coffee morning and zumba sessions. They all enjoyed being involved.

"There is also a tradition of pupils bringing in loose change for the SCIAF Wee Box collection.

"They’ve all worked very hard to raise this money.”
