Six schools sing for SCIAF

Pupils from across Cumbernauld, Chryston and Kilsyth have been getting into the Christmas spirit with a special carol concert to help some of the world’s poorest people.

Six senior schools came together on the 12th of December for a night of festive music and entertainment to raise money for our life-changing work.

The event featured talented performers from St Maurice’s High School in Cumbernauld, Chryston High School, Cumbernauld Academy, Greenfaulds High School, Our Lady’s High School and Kilsyth Academy.

Money raised on the night will help us support people in 27 countries to live in peace, free themselves from poverty and learn new skills.

The idea of using music to help with fundraising came after the Samba Band from St Maurice’s High School was involved in our WEE BOX BIG CHANGE appeal earlier this year.

James McParland, head teacher at St Maurice’s High School, said:

Our inter-schools concert was a fantastic evening which really showcased the talents of the young people across the six schools in Cumbernauld, Chryston and Kilsyth.

It was a really great opportunity to bring the school communities together to raise some funds for SCIAF and also get everyone in the Christmas mood!

This is the first time that such a venture has taken place and given the positive responses from the young people, staff from the schools and also our audience, it will certainly be repeated in the future!
