Junior School Sports Day

JS Sports 600w

We were very fortunate that the rain stopped in time for the Junior School Sports Day to go ahead yesterday. It was an exciting afternoon for everyone in Junior School and the playground was a sea of colours as we all congregated in our Houses wearing our house t-shirts. The entertainment began with the girls running around the track in their respective houses before settling down on mats in their classes. There were lots of different activities and races from individual ice cream cone and sack races, to house relay races. The P1 and P2 girls were covered in stickers in recognition of their achievement and participation.

All of the house points were added up and the winners declared:

Douglas won the House cup. In second place was Argyll and in third place was Moray.

Everyone had a great time and the sun even came out for most of the afternoon!

The ECO team did a marvellous job of selling water bottles and Eco bags raising a further £70 for school grounds development. Thank you to parents for their continued support.

A very big thank you to the PE staff for a fantastic afternoon!
