Criffel P7 Challenge

The P7s undertook a challenge today: to climb Criffel.

Alongside Mr Archibald and volunteer extraordinaire Mr Fitzgerald, they started the walk just after 10am. Despite a few early showers the P7s made good time and were at the top before midday, just as the cloud broke, revealing a lovely view. As we were back down in time, we all went for an ice cream on the way home, well done all.

 

Netball

Well done to the Netball team who competed at Hecklegirth on Wednesday.

Especially well done to Helayna who got the Player Award for Small Schools.

 

Stars of the Week

Here are our Stars of the Week, where the latest focus was on manners:

Children’s Wellbeing Survey for P5-7

The Council and its partners are currently working with Scottish Government through a programme called Realigning Children’s Services to help to improve local services for children in your area. All primary schools in the area have been invited to take part and we are inviting all children in P5 to P7 to complete a short online questionnaire during school time on their lives and wellbeing.

Please find a leaflet and letter in the P5-7’s bags which describe the survey and allow the choice of whether to take part or not.

Thanks to Coach Primrose and Ioni for the coaching.

Have a great break.

Tag Rugby

Today, members of P7, P6 and some P5 went to Violetbank in Annan to take part in the Tag Rugby Fesitval. Despite a wet start, the rain stopped and the sun even came out. We played four games, the first three back to back and then got our best result in the last game when we drew 3-3 with Beattock. Well done to all who took part and thanks to Active Schools and Annan Rugby for a fun morning.

Basketball Tournament – Match Report

Our first match was against Langholm Jets and it was a very physical match which we won 6-1. Our next match was against Hecklegirth Stingwrays and they missed a couple of chances so we won 3-0. After a forty minute break we played Newington Warriors and lost 2-0 to a very skillful team. Then we had a play-off against Langholm again and it was a very rough match but we won 2-1. Our next match was against Hecklegirth Harriers, it was a very fast paced match and we lost 1-0. So it was a fight for third and we were against Newington Wildcats and they were well prepared so we lost 2-1.

Finally, it was presentation time. Hecklegirth came 1st, Newington Warriors came 2nd and Newington Wildcats came 3rd. Brydekirk came 4th and we all tried 100%.
