AN ANNUAL GATHERING at Bishopmill Primary School in Elgin this weekend is hoping to net funding that will help support several projects over the next year.

The school’s PTF Summer Fayre takes place on Saturday – and if previous events are anything to go by there will be fun and games from all concerned.

This year the event coincides with Health Week – throughout which pupils, staff and a few parents are starting the day with a warm-up dance in the playground. Children will also be experiencing a diverse range of activities throughout the week, from kickboxing to cycling, rugby to dancing – and even fencing.

“We are keeping our fingers crossed that some of the sunshine we are seeing at the start of this week will hang around a little bit longer,” one of the organisers, Shona Vincent, told insideMoray.

She added: “What we all want to see is a big turnout in support of the school and the children who put in so much hard work.

“We are sure everyone who attends will have a great time no matter what the elements throw at us – and hopefully we can raise lots for the school, with funding raised on the day helping support projects such as maths and literacy IT packages, classroom supplies and playground equipment.”

The Fayre, which runs alongside the schools’ football tournament, begins at 10am on Saturday – anyone requiring further information should contact the school on 01343 547841.
