Don’t forget tonight to make some noise for the NHS.

The Primary School are offering daily free school meals for collection for all P1-3 children and P4-P7 children who are eligible for free school meals. However if you are struggling we are sure they can help with any surplus meals available.

If you also need help with food and fuel email and we will help you from Festival Stores.
