Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

More than 450 sec­ond year pupils from high schools across North La­nark­shire en­joyed a day out at M&D’s theme park as a re­ward for their hard work through­out the year.

The coun­cil’s Cel­e­brat­ing Suc­cess pro­gramme has part­nered with the fun park for a num­ber of years to of­fer the day out as a re­ward for good be­hav­iour, at­ten­dance and time­keep­ing.

M& D’s con­tin­ues to sup­port the ini­tia­tive by of­fer­ing free wrist­bands to the sec­ond year stu­dents.

Pupils cel­e­brated the end of the academic year by tak­ing a spin on M&D’s col­lec­tion of more than 40 rides, in­clud­ing the Night Mover Waltzer which is new for this sea­son.

Among them were pupils from Clyde Val­ley High in Wishaw and Braid­hurst High in Mother­well.

Matthew Taylor, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of M& D’s, said: “North La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s C e l e b rat i n g Su c c e s s pro­gramme is a won­der­ful way to recog­nise the hard work of pupils at schools through­out the area.

“We were de­lighted to help of­fer the pupils a su­perb day out by pro­vid­ing free ride all day wrist­bands.

“There was a fan­tas­tic at­mos­phere through­out the day and stu­dents had the op­por­tu­nity to meet up with peers and en­joy all that M&D’s has to of­fer.”
