Toon pupils get funny for money

  • Clerkhill, Buchanhaven and Dales Park schools join in the fun
  • Raised money for Comic Relief
  • Dressed in red, had crazy hair and some dressed up!

Pupils from across Peterhead supported the 2015 Comic Relief campaign recently and found many fun ways to raise money.

The charity held its big fundraising day on Friday, March 13 and the pupils were more than happy to do their bit.

Buchanhaven School held a dress red day, a raffle to win a football shirt and sold red noses to raise some cash.

They also arranged a Soak the Teacher event in which the teacher with the most money raised in their name was soaked in ice bucket challenge style.

All of the teachers involved were nervous throughout the day but Mr Loney, the school’s deputy head teacher, was the unlucky winner.

Pupils had great fun as they watched Mr Loney being soaked at the end of the school day, but he was a good sport and even wore flippers and a snorkel for the occasion!

Over at Dales Park, pupils hosted a fun afternoon filled with various stalls and games to raise money.

Some pupils also dressed funny for the day and the school raised £245.95.

Meanwhile Clerkhill School held a Pie the Teacher event in which head teacher Mr Cordiner and three other teachers were the unlucky participants.
