It was all hands to the pumps as mums, grannies and aunties lined up to be pampered and polished.

Grange Primary School held another of their family night events on November 20, and this time it was one for the girls.

Acting depute headteacher Elizabeth McGuire said: “This was a hugely successful night with over 60 people turning up, which was quite remarkable and unexpected, although pleasantly so.

“We’ve had these nights before, the last one being for the boys and their dads, so it was now the girls’ opportunity to spend some quality time with mums, grannyies and other family members trying out the various options on offer.

“We feel that the school should do all it can to support the curriculum by offering these special events.

“Our teaching staff are great believers in ‘going that extra mile’ so our pupils can have every chance available to them to benefit from the experiences we offer.

“Education in its fullest sense reaches beyond the experience offered by the school but has as its heart the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values which we strive to develop.

“In Grange Primary School we aim to enable every child to be equipped for life, building on the experiences in the home.”

The event offered a wide programme of activities which included, cake decorating, badminton, basketball, aerobic exercises, crafts, dancing, nail painting and hand massage. These allowed parents, friends, teachers and pupils to engage with each other, and sample some of the pampering choices available.
