St Andrews Hospice Virtual 6K Walk/ Run

St Andrews Hospice Virtual 6K Walk/ Run

Unfortunately, due to current restriction the hospice is unable to organise their annual 6K at Strathclyde Park.  Instead, they are trying to organise a virtual event in which staff and S4-6 can complete this distance at a place and time of their choosing, until the end of September.  We will not be giving out sponsor forms but kindly ask if you are able to make any donations on our ‘Just Giving’ page that our Hospice Ambassadors have set up. Thanks very much Mr. Pettigrewn, Mr. McInally and the Hospice Ambassadors. https://rb.gy/gizzsq

To me our drive to attain this award is not just about the sphere of LGBTi, it is about equality in the general sense whether that be related to gender, social status, religion, race or nationality. Some of the values of our school are: “Equality, Inclusion, Tolerance, Kindness and Respect”, and so attaining this award is very much in line with our morals and beliefs.
