Stonelaw pupils do their bit for charity
A number of Stonelaw High School staff and pupils ran a 6k race for charity.
The event was in aid of St Andrew’s Hospice.
Mr Keir Geatrell came second in the men’s race with a time of 20 minutes and 17 seconds.
Gavin Smith was second in the boys’race in a respectable 20 minutes and 25 seconds.
Every year more than 2000 pupils and staff members from Lanarkshire high schools take part in this event to raise funds to help keep the hospice operating.
Participants can choose to run, jog or walk the 6k route and can either wear their running kit or fancy dress outfits.
Mr Hamilton of the PE department took a number of pupils to meet the Royal Marines last week.
They were put through their paces in a number of activities, including abseiling, rock climbing, rafting, laser tag, combat fitness and a weapons display.
Pupils had a very enjoyable day where they had the opportunity to create new, and build upon existing relationships .
They also learned the values and skills which will allow them to become successful both within school and in the community along with learning the discipline, dedication and skills involved in the Armed Forces.
