Youngsters from P1 to P7 at Bankier Primary School in Banknock, joined by staff and parent helpers, competed a 45 minute sponsored walk around Cloybank Estate.

Staff from the popular attraction led the children around the grounds on Monday, May 9.

The event launched the school’s Health Focus Week, which also saw pupils engage in a range of activities including sports sessions with visiting coaches, food technology, the Walk to School Week initiative and design challenges.

Iain Farrington, acting principal teacher, said: “The Focus Week aimed to help pupils of all ages to develop understanding of ways of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, provided them with new experiences and encouraged them to develop skills that are transferrable across the curriculum.”
