Almost 3000 pupils cast a ray of sunshine over Bellahouston park as a record number turned out for the 10th annual Go Yellow Day. P5, P6 and P7 pupils from 54 schools across Glasgow wore their yellow baseball caps to start the event with a 5K walk to raise money for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.
Glasgow Life’s sports development team crammed the park full of fun sports activities. These included Hockey, conditioned Rugby games, Golf lessons, Athletics from Triathlon coaches, Martial Arts coaching and a variety of games from the Spots V Stripes community programme.
Hundreds of youngsters queued up for the inflatable assault course provided by the Gladiator programme and danced with Drumchapel Gymnastics club. Football was provided by Celtic and Rangers, whilst the Twilight programme provided a net for the youngsters to improve their Basketball skills.
The school pupils went crazy in excitement when the nine visiting mascots took part in a 30 metre dash before taking to the stage for a mass ‘cha cha slide’.
Eight volunteers from the Spots v Stripes community programme, the Glasgow Sport Young Leader programme and the Volunteer Improvement Programme all got together to help deliver most sports. The volunteers were not only provided with lunch but were also treated to a full session of tubing at Bellahouston Dry Ski Slopes as thanks for their hard work and commitment.
