PUPILS at Eyemouth Primary School took a trip back to the time of leg warmers, stonewashed denim and dodgy hair last week by staging Eyemouth Aid on the last day of term.

Primaries 2, 3 and 4 took part in the Live Aid-style concert where pupils entertained a huge crowd of friends, staff and families on the school field in glorious sunshine.

Youngsters had been learning about life in the 1980s before they broke up for summer and the concert showcased their learning.

Included in their repertoire were some classic 80s hits, many from the famous Live Aid concert, and the children really excelled with their enthusiasm and volume!

Mr Taylor accompanied the pupils on guitar and the school would also like to give special thanks to Mrs Delaney, Mrs Boag, Miss Perryman and Miss Duffield for their hard work in planning the event.

As well as pupils getting behind the mic, there was a fashion show of 80’s clothes, a drumming performance, dancing and pupils also read their language work.

Pupils had planned and organised the whole event and even sold refreshments. They had agreed that the money should go to the chosen charity for this school year - The Bokosi Orphan School in Malawi.

This was chosen in memory of Dr John Dorward who sadly passed away last year.

A total of £661 has been raised through a number of events which have including Eyemouth aid, a non-uniform day and a P1 Bake Sale.

This is a super total and the school would like to thank everyone for their support.
