Enterprising Northmuir Primary Pupils Raise Cash for Uganda

FEARLESS pupils at Northmuir Primary School ventured into the “Dragon’s Den” recently to raise funds to help build a school in Lugazi, Uganda.
Primary seven pupils carried out an enterprise project last December where they had to go through a Dragon’s Den type experience with their ideas, before being given £5 per group to start them off.
The total raised by all 12 pupils was £883.82
The teams were ‘grilled’ in the den by members of the school’s management team, with the team called the Secret Millionaires coming out as winners.
Last Friday (6th Feb 2009) the pupils presented the proceeds of the challenge to Capstone representatives Norman Forrest and Derek Marshall.
The event has further strengthened the Kirriemuir school’s ties with the charity which it has supported in the past.
