School jottings

Rotary quiz

The annual Kirriemuir area Primary Schools’ Quiz was held last Tuesday.

Two teams from Southmuir Primary School joined teams from Isla, Glamis and Northmuir schools.

As always the quiz was keenly contested, Northmuir (see picture on the left) being this year’s winners with Isla runners up.

The contest is organised by Kirriemuir Rotary Club.

Fund-raising at Whitehills

Whitehills Primary School pupils spent Friday raising money for the charity Cash for Kids.

The pupils came dressed in something bright to raise awareness of energy consumption linked to Earth Hour and, at 2 pm, the whole school saved energy by switching off as many electrical appliances as possible.

Through these efforts the Eco Committee took another step towards achieving the school’s Green Flag.

A group of children from primary 4S brought home baking and bookmarks to sell to staff.

The pupils organised this by themselves and raised £48 towards the total of £477 raised in the school.

Thanks go to all the parents for supporting the school’s fund-raising efforts.
