Real winners

PE lessons at Whitelees Primary in Abronhill are set to get a lot more exciting as the school has just been given £1,000 to spend on new sports equipment.

The cash injection is thanks to P2 pupil Aaron Graham whose mum has proven she knows a thing or two about sport.

Elaine Graham answered a question correctly on Real Radio and then nominated the primary to win the £1,000 prize, which was up for grabs as part of Bank of Scotland’s National School Sport Week.

Headteacher Ann Kay said: “In these times when money is short, it’s just wonderful to get a bonus like this. We’re thrilled and it will allow us to spend money on sports equipment that’s much needed.”

It is hoped the money can be used to give the pupils some indoor bowling lessons as they have already had taster sessions thanks to Abronhill Bowling Club.
