AUCHINLECK ACADEMY SUPPORTS LIBERIA

Thanks to Auchinleck Academy fundraising, the 299 pupils in Jebbeh Kiazolu Primary School in Liberia are being fed for a full year through the Mary’s Meals school feeding programme.

Jebbeh Kiazolu School’s Vice Principal for Student Affairs commented that the pupils even want to come to school during holidays, as they know they will be fed, and can concentrate on their lessons.

Auchinleck Academy is grateful to all in the local community who have helped make this wonderful achievement possible, and look forward to continuing the sponsorship next session, together with Cumnock Academy, who will add their support.

The Jebbeh Kiazolu school report can be found at this link:

Also appreciated is the support for the backpack project as 11 backpacks will be sent to Malawi this month.

Friday 12th May was the last of the handball competitions for this year and it saw the S1/2 boys head up to Ravenscraig to compete in the Scottish Finals, in Motherwell.

This was the first time many of the boys had experienced this level of handball and we were reliant on the guidance and skill of our older boys Lewis Young, William Prince, Ross Rollie, Nathan Brown, Caleb Robertson and Scott Howie.

With a tough loss to Marr College in our first game we were always playing catch up. Wins against Our Lady’s in Cumbernauld and Deans from Edinburgh saw us needing a win against Kelvinside Academy to reach the semi-finals. The boys were trailing by 2 goals with 1 minute left and managed to pull it back to tie, but couldn’t find the winning goal. 

A 4th/5th place play-off game saw our boys rally again and thanks to Captain and top goal-scorer  on the day – Lewis Young – we got over the line with a win and a respectable 4th place.

A good building block for us and ready to make some gains next year!
