NOVEMBER has been a busy month for charity ventures at Denbeath Primary School.

Children and staff began by paying to wear something pink to school and managed to raise £116 for the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Pupils and their families then had the opportunity to donate money to the ‘Poppy Scotland – Supporting Our Heroes’ appeal.

“Lots of people contributed and we all observed the two-minute silence on November 11,” said learning support teacher Lindsey Millar.

“Our upper school classes have also been writing letters and messages of support to be passed on to the troops in Afghanistan.”

Last week, the school raised money for Children in Need with the children paying £1 to wear something spotty to school and/or 50p to guess how many sweets were in a jar.

Ms Millar added: “If anyone in the community has any unused books that are in good condition, they can be put in a box in our school as part of our ‘read and reuse’ scheme.

“Some of the money raised from this will go to the National Literacy Trust and some will be given back to our school to buy new books.”
