S1 Fundraising Activities

jenny cookCongratulations to all S1 pupils and staff who were involved in the Arch to Arc challenge on Friday 20 May which was World IBD Day.  S1 pupils tried to mirror the 181 bike miles, 29 rowing miles and 87 running miles completed by competitors.  S1 pupils and staff managed to achieve 181 bike miles, 83 rowing miles and 94 running miles.  So far, we have raised £2363 (and still counting!) for Jenny Cook’s charities.  Jenny is a spokesperson for several charities and the money will be split between the Catherine McEwen Foundation, Yorkhill Hospital Children’s Charity and Multiple Sclerosis.  Other S1 pupils provided fantastic entertainment in The Street during lunchtime.  Well done to everyone who participated in this fantastic event.
