Diamond Challenge

On Wednesday 7th December, over 100 pupils and staff took part in the Diamond Challenge, celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh Award and raising money for disadvantaged young people in our region. 

 

Our challenge was to run, cycle or row 390 miles, the distance from Kirkintilloch to London, in the school fitness suite in just one day. Our challengers put in a huge amount of effort and pushed themselves greatly, achieving some new personal bests. They were extremely well behaved and supportive of each other while enjoying some healthy competition, and a little one-upmanship. Most notably, Dean McCue who out distanced Kayleigh McGuire (20miles v 14 miles) who was then out distanced by Morag McKay (21.5miles). Other notable efforts include Michael Prentice who completed 10.8 miles on the rowing machine, barely breaking a sweat and Cameron Gilmour who was in the lead for greatest distance until the seniors joined the challenge after lunch. 

 

Our amazing challengers surpassed our target of 390 miles, achieving an outstanding 448 miles and raising an astonishing £720. Our energetic young people should be extremely proud of their achievements.  

 

A huge well done to all involved!
