Getting active

(Photograph) - Getting active: S2 pupils at Kirkcudbright Academy last week invited all pupils and staff to consider changing their lifestyles by dropping their dependency on the car and coach. In the end, around 40 managed to break habits by walking and cycling to and from school each day with one teacher cycling 16 miles each way. The 60 per cent of pupils who rely on coaches were invited to table tennis sessions at lunchtime. Photograph by Tom FinnieAtom
