BIG-HEARTED pupils from Canmore Primary have been showing they can do more to help their local community.

Since returning to school after the break, children from all classes have been busy with a range of charitable activities.

Depute headteacher Kate McIntosh was delighted with their efforts.

"Canmore pupils have shown their school values of Respect, Resilience and Responsibility in thinking of how they can help others during this global pandemic," she said.

"Children have returned to school, delighted to be with their friends again but have not forgotten their commitment to supporting our community and charities."

A Jeans for Genes day organised by the Primary 5 class raised £340 while a Macmillan coffee morning is being put on by Primary 7 pupils this week where children and their families were asked to bake at home and send in pictures of their culinary creations.

A dress-down day with children asked to come to school in Macmillan colours of green, purple or white is also being held today (Thursday).

As if that wasn't enough, all the youngsters have taken part in a collection for Dunfermline Foodbank as part of their Tackling Poverty Week.

"Our junior leadership team have organised these items into sealed boxes which will be quarantined before being delivered to the foodbank," added Ms McIntosh. "We have been delighted at the support of our families to help those in need in our community."
