P7 teachers Miss Jardine and Mr Sleaford and former Andersons Primary pupil, Harley Sharp.

Kind-hearted former Anderson’s Primary pupils have donated more than £700 to charity after a successful fundraiser.

Each year as part of their enterprise project, Primary 7 pupils hold a fundraiser to raise money for their leavers’ celebration.

Their excellent effort saw them fund the hiring of a bus, day entry to Landmark, a personalised hoodie and yearbook for every P7 pupil. Like previous P7 leavers they also wanted to leave a legacy to the school, and on top of this donated the remaining £735 to Mary’s Meals.

Head teacher Maureen Mooney said the school staff are proud of the former pupils’ achievement.

“The children wanted to move the rope beam in the gym hall to a different position that would enable it to be used more easily without the pre-planning and preparation that was required. The cost for the work was £390. The ropes were repositioned during the summer holidays and has already been a great hit with staff and children alike, who have all been making good use of the easy access to the apparatus.

“The P7’s chosen charity was Mary’s Meals. A cheque for the remaining £735.89 was sent to the charity. Mary’s Meals sent the school a certificate and a letter of appreciation.

“To all of our Primary 7s of 2019, now S1s, we thank you most sincerely and hope you continue to be a shining example of community spirit.”

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
