Issue Number 04 | November 2019 Charity Colour Walk Our S6 leadership group did a fantastic job organising our very first 5k Colour Walk. We were very fortunate to have a sunny day for the event which saw students and staff take part in a 5k sponsored walk. The S6 leadership team created coloured chalk for students and staff to walk through at the starting line. Some energetic students and staff chose to run the 5k with Sam Rice in S2 making it back to the finish line first! He managed to run the entire 5k in 18 minutes - a fantastic achievement – which is not surprising given that Sam also holds the British U13 title for the fastest 5K at 16 minutes and 35 seconds. Well done Sam! The colour walk was a great success and the school managed to raise £3,345 for Crosshouse Children’s Fund. Congratulations to everyone who helped organise the event and to all of those who took part and donated to this great cause. 2 You can access more information about Crosshouse Children’s Fund by clicking on their logo below.
