A FUN DAY took place at a Wee County school over the weekend with all money raised set to fund more fun for the pupils.

The Fishcross Primary School parent council hosted their fun day on Sunday, September 4, with families coming along to enjoy the festivities.

Everyone enjoyed a visit from Annie the Alpaca and Brie the Pig as well as the bouncy castle, magician, face painting and fire engine on site.

There was also a dance performance, beat the goalie and local stalls with plenty of hot dogs on offer to help fuel the fun.

Mandy Mcinnes told the Advertiser: "This was my first event as the new school chairperson [and] our aim was to ensure all the children and their families had a great day of fun and laughter.

"The weather wasn't going to stop us and we took everything inside.

"We were bowled over by how many people came along and we were able to make a brilliant amount of money to make sure that we can treat the kids at Fishcross Primary.

"They all deserve it after the pandemic put a stop to our fundraising and now they can start to go on trips again [and] we can help to make that happen by helping with the costs."

The day was a success and Mandy was delighted with the amount raised.

She continued: "We'd like to thank everyone for all the hard work and for everyone that turned up and supported us.

"We really appreciate it as we are a small school.

"The day raised around £2,000 which will go towards sending all the kids to a Christmas panto, the transport for the day and also a Halloween games night we have planned for them."

"The amount we raised was way beyond our expectations for such a small school."

All money remaining after the panto trip and Halloween games night will go towards the Christmas fayre which will then raise money to help fund school trips and other things for the school children next year.
