Path Skillz Group of the Year Award

Paths at Parliament

Congratulations to our pupils who were awarded the Path Skillz Group of the Year Award at a ceremony at the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday, 10th September after being nominated for their outstanding contribution to making their communities happier and healthier.

Getting Better Together worked with a group of pupils from Calderhead High School on a Path Skillz project to resurface 100m of disused path in Shotts to transform it into a safe and welcoming walking and cycling route.

When improving the path, the group started by using litter pickers to clear up the section where they were working before they started rebuilding. They then worked in ‘squads’ and created a base for the path before laying down the path surface. The pupils (and staff) worked extremely hard despite the horrendous weather and did an excellent job.
