South Park School in Fraserburgh held a Scottish-themed day to raise money for charity recently.

The event saw the whole school getting involved in a range of activities, including making Loch Ness monsters, biscuit and cupcake decorating, a Highland Games, sewing brooches and Highland dancing.

One of the main highlights of the day came just before lunchtime, when the haggis was piped into the school gym hall. Some of the pupils then addressed the haggis during an all-school assembly.

In total, pupils, parents and staff raised £401.73 for Kilts for Kids. The idea to hold a Scottish Day came from members of the Pupil Council.

Commenting, teacher Lauren Paul, who helped to organise the Scottish Day, said: “The Pupil Council decided to do the Scottish Day to raise money for Kilts for Kids, which is part of Children 1st.

“We’ve been planning the event since the start of term. We’ve been running competitions to raise money and the children have brought donations to wear blue and white or tartan.

“Thanks to all the helpers who came along. All the children seemed to enjoy themselves while raising money.”
