THE pupils of Lochgelly's St Patrick's Primary School were celebrating on Thursday as they received a cheque for £750 from the Co-op.

The P7 pupils are now busy ensuring that the whole school community benefits from this kind contribution from the customers at the town's store.

The school's Parent Council was very much involved in the project and their chair, Debby Bell, said: "This is an excellent initiative and the pupils are busily thinking how best to spend it."

Principal Teacher, Fiona Millar, added: "Every part of the school community is to benefit and the kids are currently consulting with their peers to see what would be best in each year group."

The St Pat's youngsters were a little disappointed, however, that one of the special items that have been built in their playground as part of their fitness trail was damaged by visitors to the school policies last week.

P4 pupil Renny (pictured) said: "Our bridge has been out of action due to some damage caused by someone. We don't mind people visiting our playground but please show respect for the items we have managed to acquire over the past few months to help us get our fitness levels up."
