Pupils enjoy penguin challenge day

Children at the Nursery and in the Junior Years took part in a special penguin-themed day

Waddle lot of fun children in the Junior Years and Nursery had as they helped the School's efforts to raise money for Maggie's, p-p-pick up speed!

To support the School's sponsorship of a statue in Maggie's Penguin Parade, a fundraising public art event which will hit the streets of Dundee this summer, the Junior Years Rotakids group organised a special Penguin Challenge Day for pupils in the Nursery through to L7.

The children were asked to make a donation in order to sport the official penguin colours of black and white, before having the chance to take part in themed activities which included origami and Rotakids-produced Penguin Drive games.

In addition, as part of the day, former Deputy Rector and former Head of Geography, Val Vannet, returned to the school to talk to pupils in L6 and L7 about her recent expedition to Antarctica and, in particular, the range of penguins she saw there.

The event was a great success, raising almost £400 for Maggie's. You can find out more about the Penguin Parade at: https://maggiespenguinparade.com/
