Mums on the Run

Hyndland Mums on the Run began in September 2013 when twelve Hyndland mums decided to get together and run a sponsored 5k race to raise money for sports and outdoor equipment for the school. We now have eighteen runners, (from beginners to half marathon racers), have a qualified running coach and are affiliated to Jog Scotland. Our aim is to get Hyndland mums running and to feel all the benefits that running in a sociable group can bring: support, camaraderie, fitness and the happiness that only a post-run coffee and cake can bring.

We meet every Thursday morning after drop-off. If you’re interested in joining us contact Louise at hyndlandmumsontherun@gmail.com

Don’t wait to get fit to join – join us and get fit.

The 'Great Hyndland Bake Off'

On Friday 12 May, Hyndland Primary School held its very own edition of the critically acclaimed (or at least widely watched) "Bake Off", in the interim period during its transition from the BBC to C4. Unfortunately, neither Mary Berry nor Paul Hollywood were in attendance, nor the intrepid Mel and Sue, but we did have out very own Louise Love and Mums on the Run, who by all accounts arranged a veritable bakers' banquet, with numerous entries coming in from across the pupil and parent body.

The afternoon provided an opportunity for the confectionery entries to be feasted upon by pupils, parents and staff and the cake and bakery sales and donations made a hefty £280.45, which would surely give Greggs (or for older 'Blackadder' fans like myself, Mrs Miggins' Pie Shop) a run for their money!

Thank you and well done to all of the bakers for your entries and to Louise, MOTR and all of the parent and pupil helpers for arranging and facilitating a successful and enjoyable day.

If anyone has more fundraising ideas to help the Parent Council raise funds to make improvements to the learning experience for the children at the school (and for outdoor learning in particular), please contact Nadia Miller or Daria Jarrett via the Parent Council email: enquiries@hyndlandprimaryparentcouncil.org

The Head Teacher, Ms Helen Brown, says: "Thanks again for all the hard work and creativity poured into [this] event - it was nice to see so many people coming along to support a good cause but also enjoying being together - a classic case of having their cake and eating it!"


Mums on the Run (MOTR)

Since we started in 2013 our aim has been to provide a supportive network of running buddies to mum who want to start or improve their running, and we have a trained JogScotland leader who can provide help and advice. We've raised over £2,500 for school projects, including this year's trips to the Emirates Stadium, and operate a breakfast running club for kids at the school (this term it was for P3-P5). If any mum wants to get in touch or find out more they should contact Louise at hyndlandmumsontherun@gmail.com

Cheers

Louise Love (MOTR)

Thanks to MOTR from the Parent Council: Thank you for all of the fundraising for the school this year, including promoting it as an excellent example of the kind of contribution that parents can make as part of the wider school community, helping out at the school Sports Day, etc. Well done and thank you ladies!


HPSPC & Mums on the Run Quiz Night

quiz night may 2016

Thank you to everyone who attended the Mums on the Run Quiz Night on Friday 4 May at Partick Bowling Club. It was a great night. An excellent £527.24 was raised which will be put towards buying new buddy caps. The winning team were the Gangster Pandas.

Special thanks go to One Devonshire Gardens, LA Cakes, Leigh Garden Pilates and Boiler Room Fitness for the raffle prizes and also everyone who brought prizes of chocolate and booze on the night.


Mums on the Run LP Run and Bake Off

On Friday 11 December our indefatigable MOTR undertook an LP run, which, in the style of an LP (for those of us old enough to know what they are!) ran around the cricket pitch for 33 1/3 minutes and then went into a bake-off.

MOTR raised £86.00 from the run and Bake Off and this will go towards funding new Buddy Caps for the school Buddies.

Those taking part in the LP Run and Bake Off were Louise Love, Helen Newstead, Helen Gibson, Lisa Logan, Vari Macdonald, Ali Walker, Leigh Garden, Marion Grant, Eileen Faulds, Lesley Connelly, Barbara McGinley, Clare McGinley, Linda McCormick and Daria Jarrett.

The winner of the Bake Off was Lesley Connelly - well done Lesley!

MOTR would like to say a special thank you to the Butterscotch Bakery for donating the prize.
