Kirkhill Primary School pupils stepped up their game this week to help raise funds for Sports Relief.

As part of National Charity Day, a group of big hearted pupils from the school’s sports committee went to work and planned out a huge number of different events which everyone could join in with across the school to raise funds for the charity.

From dance-a-thons to skip-a-thons, everyone had a great time donning their trainers and gearing up to help raise money for those less fortunate than themselves.

Taylor Langmuir, one of Kirkhill’s P7 sports committee members, said: “It makes us realise how lucky we are. Lots of us have everything that we need, and a lot more besides.

“We just take things for granted but there are lots of people out there who haven’t and will not get the same opportunities.”

Mrs Donaldson, Head Teacher, said: “We are all very proud of the children’s efforts today. They have been learning about poverty both near and far, whilst also raising a lot of money to help others who are less fortunate.”

Altogether, the pupils in Kirkhill raised a whopping £5000 for Sports Relief, which will be put to very good use.
