Our pupils are enjoying a wide range of challenges and other activities as part of the Coll@Home experience.
Glenalmond College has launched an ambitious sporting challenge which aims to raise £175,000 for life-changing bursaries.
The challenge will take place as Glenalmond starts the countdown to celebrate its 175th anniversary in 2022 and is being sponsored by Johnston Carmichael Wealth, one of the UK’s leading firms of Chartered Financial Planners.
It will see pupils and their families, along with former pupils and staff and all those with links to the school, challenged to collectively complete 175,000 kilometres, equivalent to more than four times round the globe, by noon on May 2nd, 2021.
The Challenge will culminate with #Coll24, a 24 hour event starting at noon on May 1st and involving pupils, staff and other supporters running 10k stints in relay throughout the 24 hour period.
#Challenge175 builds on a very successful inaugural 2021 #Coll24 event, launched during the first Lockdown by the school’s incoming Head, Dr Michael Alderson. The 2020 event saw staff, pupils and their families, and former pupils, taking part in Scotland, the rest of the UK and overseas and the intention is to grow the global reach of the event this year.
The funds raised will be used to provide 100% bursary places for young people keen to have the benefit of a Glenalmond education, whose families would not otherwise have the means for them to attend.
