Clay-Pigeon Shoot14 May 2013
On Tuesday 14 May, the inaugural PTA Clay Pigeon Shooting Evening was held at Strathallan, with 20 eager Dads participating. With a wide range of shooting abilities it was an enjoyable and entertaining evening for everyone, and one which will definitely be repeated.
Congratulations to the winning team of Ewan Fraser, Bryan Fleming, Alex Collinson, Paddy Hartell and Duncan Heaton-Armstrong whose score of 64/125 beat the "Form 3 Smithereens" team of Benedict Lawson, Tom Cornell, John Stephen, Stuart Henderson and James Halley into second place. The winning team have already promised to shoot together again next year and will clearly be the ones to beat! A special mention also to Ewan Fraser who had the highest individual score of 23/25 and Bryan Fleming who was second with 18/25.
The evening ended with a curry and glass of wine kindly provided by Strathallan, who we must thank also for hosting the evening. Thanks are also due to Ed Anderson for enabling the event to go ahead.
Just under £300 was raised for Craigclowan.
PTA Ceilidh20 Mar 2013
Thank you to all of you who attended the PTA Ceilidh last Saturday, which raised £239. The evening began with Gregor Cochrane playing his bagpipes and he was then joined by “The Albany Band” who supported him playing “Highland Cathedral”. It was then onto the dancing and the dance floor was never empty thanks to Mrs Farrow who expertly persuaded everyone to join in. Supper was stovies and shortbread provided by Jean, then onto more dancing. The evening ended with Auld Lang Syne with many smiling, happy faces – kids and parents alike. A great evening and hopefully the first of many School Ceilidhs!
