May Fayre 2017

It was lovely to see school so busy on Saturday with everyone who came along to take part in our annual May Fayre organised by our PTA and to support the fundraising for our playground developments. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and had a good afternoon! We are counting the money raised on Monday evening and will let you all know how much we made once we have a total.  Thank you to all the parents, staff and friends of school for helping to set up, run the stalls and tidy up at the end of the Fayre.

A huge thank you from everyone connected to Currie Primary School to our wonderful PTA for all their time, effort and ideas to ensure the smooth running of events such as the May Fayre which results in additional resources for our school. Our pupils have some fantastic ideas for things they would like to have in our playground and all the work the PTA have put into the various fundraising events organised throughout this year will help us to achieve these plans!

Tesco Bags of Help


Great news – we received an email yesterday from Tesco with the following message:-

‘We are delighted to let you know that following the Tesco Bags of Help vote in your local Tesco stores, your project came first and has been chosen by Tesco Customers to receive a grant award of £5,000.00!’

Thank you to everyone who took the time to pop the voting tokens into our box in the Tesco stores when you were in shopping. Once we know where our extension is going to go we will be able to make a start on our playground developments!

Sports Day 08.06.17


Weather permitting Sports Day is planned for the morning of 8 June 2107 and we hope as many of our parents and carers are able to come along and join in the fun of cheering on our houses for this event. We aim to get started as soon as classes are registered and out on the field ready.

The family picnic on the field after Sports Day last year was really successful and we loved having everyone stay for lunch so we plan to extend this invitation to everyone again this year. If you would like to and are able to stay for a picnic lunch with your children after Sports Day please bring a picnic, picnic rugs etc. with you. School lunches on the 8th of June will be a picnic lunch so we can all join in.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

One of the biggest highlights of the May Fayre is the raffle. For the last couple of years as well as 3 ‘main’ prizes we have made hampers with donations from the children. These are really popular and we hope to do the same for this year. We have a hamper for each school year group, each with a theme.

We would appreciate it if your child could bring in a donation towards their year’s themed hamper – we’ve given a couple of examples of suggested donations below, but could be absolutely anything related to the theme – this is of course, completely voluntary.

As a wee thank you to the children for doing this, we are having a ‘dress down’ day on Friday 19th May. If your child can bring in their donation on this day, we’d be grateful so that we can get the hampers made up before the Fayre on Saturday 27th. Donations can be brought in via school bags, Ms Hourston has kindly offered to store them in her office.

Many thanks for your help and support,

Currie Primary PTA.
