World Aid Week 2013

World Aid Week took place from 18th to 22nd March 2013. This week saw the famous ‘Battle of the Bun Sales’ take place, where Year 13 competed against Year 14, to see who could make the most money through making and selling buns. This year Year 13 were victorious by quite a margin!

We saw an ‘old fashioned’ sports day return to Dalriada where Year 8 proved to be the winning team, beating Year 14 decisively! Sixth Form pupils showed where their talents lay by beating the teachers in the annual ‘Teacher V Pupil’ volleyball match. The John Armstrong Hall was the venue for Dalriada’s own version of ‘Take Me Out’  where pupils and staff paid to watch Sixth Form pupils take part in their own version of the TV show.

The week’s highlight was the annual Talent Show which saw many talented Dalriads take to the stage to show off their talent. Amongst the talent was Irish Dancing, singng, piano playing to name a few, however one of the most popular acts was the Sixth Form boys as ‘5D’, their version of the famous One Direction! Year 8 pupil Jamie Moorehead was the winner with his song which mesmerised the audience.

2012/2013 has been another very successful year for the World Aid Group and the total raised since September stands at almost £6560. This money will be split between many charities and will help continue the work of many charities who are often struggling in difficult financial times. All pupils and staff should be proud of the effort and enthusiasm they put into all the activities which has enabled such a large total to be raised.
