IT was a case of red-dy steady go as Gourock Primary took part in the Comic Relief appeal yesterday.

Teachers, staff and pupils donned red noses and red t-shirts to play their part in helping vulnerable people and communities in the UK and internationally.

Parents, carers and family members were invited in to enjoy a special assembly led by the primary 3/4 class, highlighting the work of Comic Relief.

Class teacher Carol McArthur has been teaching the primary 3/4 pupils all about Red Nose Day and how by raising a little money the pupils can help make a big change.

The pupils sold red noses ahead of the event and the school's house captains made biscuits which were sold to top up the funds collected.

Head teacher Una Nicolson, was delighted to see so many pupils supporting the event.

She said: “It is important to support Red Nose Day because we are a rights respecting school and we focus on global goals and how we can help achieve them.

“We might only be a small school but we can help others and help make big changes.

“I am so impressed with how many pupils have come dressed in red with a donation.

“The class leading assembly worked so hard and the biscuits made by the house captains were delicious.

"The pupils sold lots of red noses in the lead-up to the event so hopefully once all the money is collected we will have raised a good amount.

“We would like to thank all the parents, carers and family members who came to support us.”
