Children in Need

Well done to everyone at Lasswade Primary School for raising £517.42 for Children in Need on Friday. What a fantastic effort!!

The children looked amazing at assembly dressed in their onesies, pyjamas or dressed down.  There were a few Pudsey’s faces too!!

Thanks to our Events and Media group who designed posters to raise awareness and also held a sponsored silence last week too.

The Tradey Treats tuck shop has been open for two weeks now and has been very busy indeed!! Our P7 pupils are doing a great job of serving the children, replenishing stocks, recording what has been sold and handling the money.  Thank you for giving up your break times so readily.

So far the best sellers have been the cola bottles, the jelly teddies and the choc n’ toffee bars!!

We have had over 150 children join our Co-Operative and membership cards and details have been issued to all members.

Don’t forget the tuck shop is open to P1-3 on a Tuesday and P4-7 on a Wednesday.

Thank you for your support so far.
