Our P4-7 pupils took part in the annual Cross Country Competition at Lochmaben. All did their best and represented the school well. We also managed to win some medals and trophies, well done to:
P4/5 Small Schools girls first place, Sarah
P4/5 Small Schools girls team first place, Sarah, Molly and Aiva
P4/5 Small Schools boys team first place, James C, Douglas and Daniel
P6/7 Small Schools girls first place, Emily
P6/7 Small Schools boys second and third place Adam and Mark
P6/7 Small Schools girls team first place, Emily, Saskia and Anya
P6/7 Small Schools boys team first place, Adam, Mark and James M
Emily also received a shield for Most Meritorious Performance, which is the second time a pupil from this school has been awarded the prize. Very well done.
The pupils did well due to the hard work they put in during preparation and learned a valuable lesson in life: effort during preparation = results.
Thanks to Mrs Mannall, Mrs Foster and the team for another well ran event.

Sometime last term the primary 4 to 7s got a bus to Lochmaben to take part in the annual cross country festival. First up it was the primary 4 and 5 small schools girls. They had to run 800m. They all were brilliant and managed to win the group shield and be in the top three.Next primary 4 5 boys they all did well as well unfortunately they did not manage to get the group shield. Followed by the middle schools races.Then back to us primary 6 7 girls small schools. We did really well by scooping the group shield again and being in the top three and to add to that cross country champions shield. Last but not least the primary 6 7 boys scooped the shield and the champion shield. Everyone put in a 101% and we came out with good results. Thanks for the cross country training and it was all
This year’s Annandale and Eskdale Primary Schools’ Cross Country Competition was held today at Lochmaben Primary, and it was a glorious sunny day.
P4-7 took part in four races: P4-5 girls small schools, P4-5 boys small schools , P6-7 girls small schools and P6-7 boys small schools. The P4-5s ran 800m and the P6-7s ran 1500m.
All pupils who took part did really well, which is no surprise as we’ve been practising hard for the last month running up to today (more details in a further post). We even managed to win some prizes: P4-5 girls came first in the team event (fastest three finished from one school), Sandy came third overall in the P4-5 boy’s race, P4-5 boys came first in the team event and the P6-7 girls came third in the team event. A mention should be made for the P6-7 boys too, who did really well and tried their best.
Many thanks go to Mrs Mannell, Mrs Foster, Tina Lockart and anyone else involved in organising this well run event. Thanks to Lochmaben Primary for hosting this event. Thanks are also due to Mrs Robson for organising the bus, correspondence and sorting out the class’s smart t-shirts with our school name on the back (see below), and for washing them, to Mrs Park for putting on and taking off the numbers and support today and finally thanks are due to the Mums who came along and supported the school.
P4-7 also deserve a pat on the back for all of the effort they have put in before and during this event, including some great cheering on of their class mates. The pictures below are highlights of the day. I’ll post further slide shows of each race.
