PLHS Running Club starts back!

The PL Running Club starts back today (Monday 4th September) after school, meeting in the PE department. It will run (and we will run!) from 3.45-4.30pm. All ages and abilities welcome but we would warmly welcome some of our new S1 runners, or pupils who are new to it and have always wanted to try. Remember, being good at running also helps with many other sports!

Please bring PE kit, comfortable and supportive trainers and a bottle of water.

Exercise is linked to so many health benefits for mind as well as body, so exercise your body, calm your mind, indulge in a positive experience and enjoy spending time with other enthusiasts and meet new friends! All pupils and staff welcome. We can’t wait to see you there!

Have a lovely week
