Duncanrig Fun Day

Dear Parent/Carer,

The school’s Prince’s Trust group have been working this year on producing a “FunDay” to help promote positive mental health. We are happy to announce that this event will be held on Thursday 23rd June. The pupils from The Prince’s Trust group have organised for an inflatable company to bring some fun activities to the school including a bouncy castle disco dome, bucking bronco and a 50ft inflatable assault course. This event is free of charge, however, the pupils have been challenged to bring in items to donate to our local foodbank in lieu of payment. The school are looking to donate over 2022 items so any support that you can give to this challenge would be greatly appreciated. There are some stalls on the day selling goods including, the schools enterprise group selling phone charms, the Barista Bar selling smoothies and Frappes and Health and Food Technology department selling baked good.

It is suggested that pupils do not bring any more than £5 to school to spend on the day. The school day will look different on Thursday to accommodate the “FunDay” with the times below being followed by the whole school. 09.00 – 09.10 – Registration. 09.00 – 09.45 – Pupils in class. (Period 1) 10.00 – 12.45 – “FunDay” activities. (Period 2/3/4) 12.45 – 13.30 – Lunch for all pupils. 13.30 – 15.55 – Following normal timetable (period 5/6/7) Pupils also have permission on the day to wear Non-Uniform, as normal football colours and inappropriate clothing are not allowed, please be aware of nature of the day with bouncy castles and being outdoors and ensure appropriate dress wear.  

Yours Sincerely,
