Charity Bake Sale

Ellie Macdonald and Erin Macleod from GP7  organised a special bake sale to raise funds to support a Cerebral Palsy charity. They worked very hard to prepare their baking and it was very well received by the pupils when they held their sale at break-time today. They raised an hugely impressive £180.00 for their charity.

Scottish Independence Referendum – Polling Station

The old Sgoil Araich building at the front of the school is being used today as a polling station for the Back area in the Independence Referendum. This may result in parking and traffic at the front of the school being much busier than usual at drop-off and pick-up times. We would like to apologise to parents for any inconvenience this may cause. Both the Sgoil Araich and the school are open as normal today.
