BBC Children in Need logo

Period 6 – There will be a huge ASG Pudsey Treasure hunt around the high school
involving all our pupils from P1-S6.

Period 7 – High School Pupils only – There will be a game of Sardines and a Big Children In Need house quiz!  Pupils will be earning house points as well as raising money with donations.

Pupils and staff are asked to bring in a donation for taking part in the afternoon’s events.  £3 per person is the suggested amount. Any donations from staff and pupils will be collected in the afternoon and any other donations from the community or families will be gratefully received.
