High school pupils step out in style to raise funds

The Oban Times - - News -

MORE than 600 pupils from Lochaber high school walked 10 miles to raise cash for their school on Tues­day.

Pupils walked from the school to Lochaber Ru­ral Ed­u­ca­tion Trust at Tor­lundy, where they had lunch and walked back, for the an­nual fundraiser and hope to ex­ceed last year’s £6,000 sum.

Head teacher Jim Suther­land said: ‘It was a beau­ti­ful day for the walk and the money will go to­wards the school’s ex­tra- cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, such as drama, mu­sic and sports clubs. It is the school’s main event and we do­nate 10 per cent to a lo­cal char­ity of the chil­dren’s choice.’

Mr Suther­land gave a spe­cial thanks to the Forestry Com­mis­sion, Is­abel and Linda Camp­bell, of the Lochaber Ru­ral Ed­u­ca­tion Trust, and deputy head teacher of Lochaber high Don­ald McLean.
