Hundreds of pupils gathered and cheered when Callum entered the big hall for afternoon assembly before certificates were presented to all of the children who had excelled in their academic achievements.
The midfielder’s skills were then put to the test in the playground when he took part in a kick about and fun-filled penalty shoot with members of the school’s football team watched closely by all the pupils (including the 19-year-old’s own sister), teachers and staff.
After the fun and games it was back into the classroom for some hard work; an interview conducted by pupils who produce the school’s newspaper. The children asked some great questions varying from football-related to more comical subjects.
As part of the club’s ongoing commitment to charity and community projects, Our Lady of Compassion has been offered tickets to the visit of Blackburn Rovers to St. Andrew’s on Saturday 4 May (3pm kick-off).
Callum told bcfc.com: “The visit was a big success, I had a really good time and enjoyed it a lot. It was great to come back to my old school to see my old teachers but even more importantly see the students and reward them for all their hard work this year. I am looking forward to visiting again soon.“
