The SSPCA made a return visit to Clarkston last week after caring pupils spotted another ill pigeon on the football pitch.  Pupils helped put an air-holed box over the pigeon to keep it safe until Emma from the SSPCA arrived.  Emma then took the pigeon to the action centre for treatment to help the pigeon make a full recovery!

Primary 7 pupils had a super time supporting the St Andrew’s Hospice Wear Yellow Walk around Strathclyde Park today.  Children enjoyed the buzz of the event and even manage a ‘shout out’ from the DJ!  St Andrew’s Hospice is one of our business partners and it is great to raise funds to support their cause.  Well done everyone who attended the event!
