THEY were dancing for joy at Parklands School in Helensburgh last week after a fund-raising coffee morning in the town.

Pupils, parents, staff and friends of the school joined forces to give a warm welcome to members of the public at the event, which was held at the United Reformed Church hall in West Princes Street.

Money raised at the event, which was organised by the parent council at Parklands, will be used to pay for special dance sessions for pupils at the school, which provides education for children aged between five and 18 with complex educational needs.

Parent Julie Ward told the Advertiser: “Parklands Parent Council would like to thank all parents and staff who helped run our fund-raising coffee morning last Saturday. We were delighted to raise £400.

“This will be used towards helping fund fully inclusive dance sessions with a dance specialist at Parklands that all our pupils can participate in.

“Once again thanks to the local community for supporting us and your continued on going support for our school.”

The upcoming dance lessons will add to the education provision at Parklands, which already offers a hydrotherapy pool, music and movement room, a home economics area, a multi-sensory indoor environment and a sensory garden.
