Kind-hearted pupils at Northmuir Primary School have presented the proceeds of
a major fundraising drive to a project which will help build a school for children in
Uganda. Two primary seven classes at the school studied the differences between
Uganda, Canada and Scotland. Head teacher Mrs. Wharton had visited Uganda and
on her return told the children of the poverty and hardships of the children there.
With the help of their teachers, Miss Alston and Mrs Bunyan, the pupils decided to
do some fundraising which will be put towards the school building. Teams were
set up and various fundraisers were carried out. The final proceeds of £919.16 was
presented to trustees of the Capstone Projects in Uganda at Northmuir Primary.
