The Seven Hills Pupil Challenge 2021

Our pupils have devised the Seven Hills Pupil Challenge to help raise funds for The Seven Hills Project - St Mary’s Music School’s 50th Anniversary Project which involves commissioning eight new pieces of music; composition workshops; getting out into the community and a celebratory gala concert. 

About the Challenge

The challenge is to walk or run 14 miles (the combined distance of the Seven Hills of Edinburgh) or cycle 70km (43.5 miles) in under a week.

Anyone can take part in the challenge and we hope that our wider community of parents, staff, friends, alumni and supporters will want to take part. 

Will you rise to the Challenge? 

If you would like to take part contact us for a sponsorship form info@st-marys-music-school.co.uk or call into the main office at School. Donations can be made by cash or cheque to the main office or by pressing the Donate Now button below. 

All activities which are part of the Challenge must be completed by midnight on Sunday 27th June.
