Kids’ skills tests chal­lenges

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Coatbridge High School In Malawi Fundraiser - Ian Bunt­ing

Coat­bridge High School pupils went head-to-head in a se­ries of en­ter­tain­ing chal­lenges that tested their brains, strength and bak­ing skills.

The school was abuzz with the sound of hearty com­pe­ti­tion for its In­ter House Day con­test.

Young­sters rep­re­sent­ing each of the school’s three houses – At­las, Cale­do­nian and Phoenix – faced off in an at­tempt to win points for their re­spec­tive teams.

They were pit­ted against each other in fun events in­clud­ing a tug of war, bad­minton, Wii games, cake dec­o­rat­ing and a gen­eral knowl­edge quiz.

Cale­do­nian house came out on top in a close-run com­pe­ti­tion and were con­grat­u­lated by the school on their “fan­tas­tic suc­cess”.

The In­ter House Day also dou­bled up as a non-uni­form day where pupils made a do­na­tion to leave their blaz­ers, shirts and ties at home and wore ca­sual cloth­ing in the class­room in­stead.

Funds col­lected from pupils and their fam­i­lies, and school staff, helped Coat­bridge High School raise a ter­rific £1200 for its Malawi-re­lated projects.

Thanks to all who took part.
