Hallowe’en Pumpkin Competition

Although Friends of Gylemuir can’t host their usual Halloween party,  in order to keep some Halloween fun going they are running the first ever Great Gylemuir Pumpkin Carving Competition!

Entry to the competition costs £1 per child and all entries must be in by Halloween – 31st October.
Entry money should be handed to the class teacher and you will then be able to send us pictures of your smashing pumpkins!

Photos of your finished, carved pumpkin should be e-mailed to friendsofgylemuirps@outlook.com  or posted on the Friends of Gylemuir Facebook group (on the dedicated thread).

Each photo must feature a piece of paper with the child’s name and class. Unfortunately, entries not containing this information, or where the entrance fee hasn’t been paid, can’t be accepted.

Prizes will be awarded to the best pumpkin in each year group so Friends of Gylemuir can’t accept joint entries – one entry per child please.

We can’t wait to see all your fabulous pumpkin creations!
