Primary 6/7 are gearing up to take part in the Break the Cycle Virtual Challenge with Social Bite and Sir Chris Hoy. The challenge aims to raise £1 million to help the charity Social Bite break the cycle of homelessness in the UK.
The class will be matching Chris Hoy’s 60 mile cycle by running the equivalence of 60 laps of the school across a week and will also be hosting a 60 minute football match.
They have started training and have requested the help of Mr Mearns, Mr Kay and Mr Peterkin – who have all confirmed they will play vital roles with the football match!
The events will take place on the week beginning 10th May with the football match being held on Friday 21st May at 1pm.
Unfortunately due to Covid restrictions we won’t be able to invite spectators to watch the events but if you would like to help out by making a donation you can do so at:
