A STAGGERING £8,026 has been raised for Woodmill High school over just FOUR days through bag-packing at Tesco's Duloch store.

Abbeyview's Tryst management committee, along with concerned parents and friends of Woodmill teamed up last week with hopes of providing funds for items Fife Council may not be able to replace.

Students, parents and volunteers, along with the school's headteacher, Sandy McIntosh, all rolled up their sleeves to raise the amazing amount at the store.

A spokesperson from Tryst said: "We would like to thanks everyone who bag-packed at Tesco Extra and a big thank you to Tesco."

A meeting last Saturday has also sparked more ideas for fundraising events, including a talent show at Abbeyview Bowling Club on Sunday from 12-5pm, and a Mega Fun Day on September 22.

Details of events can be found on the 'Woodmill High School Fundraising Page' on Facebook.

Bag-packers were also at B&M on Sunday while staff ran cake stalls.

Sky have confirmed that they are donating £50,000 to Woodmill High School.

The communication giants didn't wish to make an official statement but a message to staff read: "At Sky, we're the place to make a difference for our people, our customers and our communities and that's why we want to donate £50K towards the school's recovery plan."

Meanwhile, a crowdfunding page set up to help replace any equipment that may have been lost has now raised more than £13,000.

To plug gaps in teachers' resources, the Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RGSS) has been helping the school's geography department source material.

Staff were shown around the RSGS archive on Monday and were able to take an impressive stash back to Dunfermline.

In a letter to Shirley-Anne Somerville MSP, Deputy First Minister John Swinney said: "I have also been struck by how the whole community in Dunfermline has pulled together in the wake of the fire."
