From Friday September 22nd to Wednesday September 27th participating shops located throughout Dennistoun will have a picture card with a type of vehicle in their window display. In Dennistoun Library there will be 3 cards in the children’s section.
We also want you to let us know what you think about Dennistoun. If you’re in Primary 1, 2, 3, or 4 please tell us what’s good about Dennistoun. If you’re in Primary 5, 6, or 7 we want to know what Dennistoun needs. If there are lots of correct entries the best answer will help decide the winner.
Entry sheets have been handed out by the school in advance. When the sheet is completed, hand it in to your teacher. Forms need to be handed in by the end of the school day on
Friday September 29th. Update: As the schools were closed for three days of the week, participants will be able to hand their entry forms to their teacher until Wednesday October 4th. Remember to put your name, class, school and teacher. If you did not receive an entry sheet, a copy can be downloaded via the link at at the end of this post.
Update: Due to circumstances beyond our control Nine Months Later at 635 Duke St won’t have a card in their window for the Treasure Hunt. We obviously won’t be expecting participants to find a card that’s not there, so no answer required for item 5 on the list.
- Every child who hands in a form with answers will get a certificate.
- There will be two main prizes for each school: a voucher for Millers art store for the boy and the girl with the most correct answers from each school.
If there is more than one sheet with all the answers right, the winners will be based on the tie-breaker chosen by Dennistoun Community Council. We’ll let the school know who won prizes during the week starting Monday October 2nd, and you can collect it from your teacher.
Younger children should be with parents while looking at shop windows, and only cross streets at the proper crossings.
Note to parents: Please note this is supposed to be a fun event for children. We understand younger children will need some help, but participating shops will not respond to phone calls asking what’s in their window.
We reserve the right to disqualify any entry we believe to have been completed by adults for children in Primary 4 and above. The decision of Dennistoun Community Council regarding winning entries is final, and no correspondence will be entered into. There will be no cash alternatives to the prizes offered.
The Dennistoun Treasure Hunt is possible due to funding from Glasgow City Council.
