PUPILS at Madras College have been going the extra mile for Sport Relief.
As a part of their enterprise and health & wellbeing courses this term, youngsters from the St Andrews school’s Additional Support Department have been working hard to raise money and encourage others to do the same.
Among a number of activities they organised and participated in were a DAS-sponsored swim at the East Sands Leisure Centre.
Scott Cavin, John Law, Robbie Robertson and Mrs Weston all swam a full mile while many others achieved either a half mile or a personal best.
In the weeks leading up to Sport Relief, the pupils sold socks, wristbands, water bottles and other Sport Relief goods.
The pupils also organised a photo competition to try and guess the staff member involved in a sporting event.
There was also a very successful multi-gym set up last Friday when pupils could sign up to use a variety of machines loaned by the University of St Andrews and East Sands Leisure Centre.
Pupils rowed the Tay, spin-cycled the Tay Bridge and back, walked the Tay Bridge on a cross trainer or skipped and hula hopped for 10 minutes.
So far, the money raised has just reached £1000 which is a fabulous effort.
