On your marks… get set… St Andrew’s

This year the St Andrew’s Hospice 6K Road Race and Fun Run will take place on Sunday 22nd September at 10.30am at Strathclyde Park.

Last year, our students and teachers who took part in the event raised over £2600 for the Hospice and our seniors are fully committed to beating that figure this year. Registration forms are available from Miss Mitchell or Mrs Lennox and there is an entry fee of £5 for pupils and £10 for staff. You can run, jog or walk so no excuses!
