Spring Fair a success at Eastern Primary School

A BROUGHTY Ferry councillor has praised the organisation and good turnout at a recent primary school fair.

The Labour councillor and Dundee City Council’s spokesperson for education, Laurie Bidwell, said he was pleased to see the success of the Eastern Primary School Spring Fair on Saturday morning.

He said: “This major fund-raiser was organised by a sub-group of the parent council under the leadership of chairperson Elaine Smith.

“For the first time the school used the Games Hall in their new building to which they re-located last year.

“It was good to see so many parents and carers, children and teachers enjoying the attractions; it had the buzz of a busy covered market.”

Among the attractions were face painting, an outdoor climbing wall and a top raffle prize of an iPad 2 which generated a great deal of interest.

On display was a wall chart asking parents to leave comments under the headings of what the school should ‘start doing’, ‘stop doing’ and ‘keep doing’, which will create a new channel of feedback from parents.
