Pupils at Tyrie School have taken part in a host of activities to raise money for this year’s Children in Need appeal.

Tyrie School’s Pupil Council organised the fun day, which saw everyone, including staff, come to school in their pyjamas for a special afternoon party.

In the morning, there was a host of activities for the pupils to take part in, including Pin the Patch on Pudsey, a Pudsey colouring competition and a ‘Coin Pudsey’, where pupils brought in their own coppers to cover a picture of Pudsey Bear.

The children also tried their luck at competitions where they had to ‘Guess the sweeties in the jar’ and ‘Guess the bear’s birthday’.

In the afternoon, all the pupils attended a pyjama party in the school hall, where they watched a DVD and enjoyed some popcorn.

Thanks to the efforts of pupils, parents and staff, the fantastic sum of £276.40 was raised for the annual charity appeal.

Commenting, Tyrie School head teacher Nicola Ogston said: “The pupils put in a huge amount of effort. The event was organised and run by the Pupil Council.

“A fantastic time was had by all, with everyone getting involved in the activities that were on offer.

“A great amount of money was raised for a worthy cause.”
