COMMUNITY spirit was in full flow as Ross High School held its Christmas Fayre – with a wide range of local groups, businesses and clubs joining in.

The Tranent school was packed with stalls showing off the talents of the school’s creative and entrepeneurial pupils, and there were lots of fun activities organised as well as some healthy competition on show.

S3 maths classes challenged each other to see who could raise the most money through tombolas, raffles and games, while local sports clubs, East Coast FM, Ross High Parent Council and Sanderson’s Wynd Primary School all joined in.

The high school said the fayre was “a real chance for the whole wide school community to work together and to have fun, as well as raise money”.

S3 Enterprise pupils Aiden Ewing and Amy Gossner gave their account of the day on behalf of S3 and S1 classmates.

They said: “Each class split into different groups with the aim to create individual Christmas products and sell them to the local community.

“This event allowed us to gain skills in teamwork, communication, strategy, presentation, managing finance and time management. We enjoyed the experience of being involved in such a well-organised and attended event and hope we can be part of many more at Ross High.”
