    Story

    Parkhill Secondary School is a school for children and young people with Additional Support Needs in the East End of Glasgow. Many of our children and young people come from areas of multiple deprivation, some have never been abroad or experienced another culture.

    Last year the school began a partnership with a school in Nuremberg, Germany. Pupils from that school visited Scotland in May - some of them seeing the sea for the very first time. Then in June we visited Germany. The pupils gained a huge amount from the experience, learning about jobs and the hospitality industry in Germany as well as the culture and lives of the people there. It was a life-changing experience for all involved and it was amazing to see the young people grow in confidence and gain new skills.

    Several members of the school staff will be running the Great Scottish Run on October 1st to raise money to help support our young people to get to Germany again this year. By donating to our page, you'll be helping our children and young people gain life experiences they otherwise may never have had.

      Well we did it!!! It rained but thankfully wasn't very windy. We had a great time despite the weather and your support was very much appreciated. Thank you to Anna Findlay and Khallid Raza who also ran with us and raised money to support the school. Big hats off to our school captain Lewis McQuillan who ran 56.20 in his first 10k. Well done!! We have now raised nearly £2000 in online donations and direct donations to the school. From the bottom of our hearts - a huge thank you. This will help us achieve our goal of sending pupils to Germany!!

      Well the day is nearly here and our new race t-shirts are definitely here. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored us through this page or directly to the school. You are all very generous and amazing people. We are all excited about the run on Sunday although we're less excited about the weather. If you wish to come and cheer us on we'd be delighted to see you.

      Well done to everyone who got out for a training run today. We are delighted to have been joined by our new school captains Lewis McQuillan who managed a credible 4k at a good pace. Hats off to Mr May, Miss Cole, Mr Pepin and especially Mr Heally (battling a cold) who all got in some laps of the park. Mrs MacLean continued her evening training, accompanied by the new Parkhill Runners mascot.
