Today at assembly the children were told about the Ullapool Duck Race which will take place on Monday 2nd of May at 12.30pm.
The children were given an entry form by Miss Middleton from the High School and they should all have this going home today – or on Monday. Please note that you can “buy” or “sponsor” a duck. It costs £3 to buy a duck (bought ducks will be given to the children on Thursday 28th April and are decorated by them before the race, bought ducks have to be brought to the race… however, after the race the bought ducks must be returned to the High School) . To sponsor a duck costs £2. (Sponsored ducks are not decorated.) Each duck will be numbered. There is a “mystery prize” for the best looking bought duck. The duck race is being held to help to raise funds for the High School trip to the French battlefields of the First World War.
We hope this answers any questions you have.
