Sports Day

The PE Department organises an annual Sports Day where the normal timetable is cancelled and pupils take part in a variety of sporting events, have a barbecue for lunch and watch staff compete in their own set of races at lunchtime.

This is a House event with classes from each House competing against each other to win the Phil MacKay Trophy and the Fair Play Trophy, which is awarded to the class demonstrating the best sporting conduct throughout the day. Teaching and non-teaching staff help support the event by running events and supervising. The library is a base for pupils who are unable to participate where they help to put together a display of photographs from the events. (Gallery of photographs below.)

Our S1-3’s have been competing in PE in an Interhouse Out of House challenge! They have been working really hard at staying active and challenging themselves to either run, walk, swim or cycle to earn KM’s to contribute to their houses distance. The scores are very close… Watch the Presentation below to find out the current leader board and some shout outs to some outstanding pupils! Make sure you press the ‘play Slideshow from beginning’ button to watch your cars race and press play on the videos to hear Miss Hamilton and Mr Flett explain the update.
