Primary 2 Fundraising Success!

Primary 2 held a sponsored Readathon in November to raise funds for CHAS a charity very close to the hearts of everyone in St. Mirin's. The fact that it is children helping children always inspires our fund raising. The children found out all about what happens in Rachel & Robin House. they wrote letters, made posters, did a lot of money work and made graphs to name but a few of the activities they were involved in.

On the day of the Readathon the children were enthusiastic and tried to read as many books as they could in the given time and this was interspersed by stories being read to them by the Senior Management Team and class teachers. we then began to collect our sponsor money. it is with astonishment and delight that the children managed to collect the grand total of £711 with the help of parents, relations and friends.

On Monday 4 February Debbie, a CHAS representative, came to the infant assembly to accept the cheque on behalf of CHAS. To say that she was amazed at the amount raised would be an understatement. She was able to tell us that St. Mirin's have now donated over £8,000 in the years we have been supporting CHAS. A wonderful amount. Miss Devine and Debbie are now arranging for a group of children to visit Robin House in Balloch during their Open day in April 2013. Many, many thanks for all your support.
