Milngavie’s only Catholic school, St Joseph’s Primary, which is threatened with closure if the council goes ahead with plans to create a new merged school in Bearsden, raised £1,600 for the school by holding a Christmas fair recently. The school was buzzing with children, their parents and familes and friends.
There was a very impressive themed hamper raffle, tombola, lots of lovely home made cakes as well as rolls and sausage, tea and coffee, and lots of Christmas stalls.
Visitors enjoyed seeing the children’s Christmas essays and projects as well as the crafts and gifts they had made.
The pupils also performed the Christmas story from the perspective of the ‘Bethlehem Innkeeper’ and ‘Daniel the Donkey’.
The school campaigners were also there to raise money to finance their ongoing battle to save the school from closure.
