Pupils lap up M&D’s day out
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.”
