Guid Nychburris Football

It’s been a busy week at Calside with teams taking part in the annual Guid Nychburris football tournament. All teams played well and worked hard. They were excellent representatives for the school showing great teamwork and sportsmanship.

P5

Although the results didn’t go their way, the boys played really well: they never stopped running and were always encouraging each other. It was a really encouraging sign for their future football tournaments at Calside. Well done!

P6

A massive thank you to Mark Kerr who took the boys along to the tournament, unfortunately they missed out on the semi finals on goal difference. Again these boys showed great sportsmanship, team work and desire. Well done!

P7

The P7 boys along with two P6 boys took part in the tournament. Scott Hodgins kindly offered to take the boys along so again a massive thank you goes to him too. The boys again showed excellent teamwork, sportsmanship and desire. They won the tournament on penalties and what a great way for the P7 boys to end their time at Calside.

Girls

We had a fantastic uptake in the number of girls who wanted to take part this year and as a result we were able to enter two teams. Thanks goes to the hard work of Suzanne and Rachael who have coached the girls throughout the year. Both teams did really well with one just missing out on the semi finals. Well done girls!

Hockey

On Thursday the 6th of June Calside took part in a hockey tournament at the King George Arena. We competed against teams from Cargenbridge, Caerlaverock and Brownhall. The team showed a great attitude and worked well together. One team finished 2nd and the other finished 4th. Well done to all who took part.

Calside General Elections 2019

 

And the winner is……

on Wednesday the 23rd of January P5/6/7 held an election to see who would be the winning party. 13 parties took part and had the chance to deliver their speeches on what their party promises were. Other parties were then allowed to challenge their promises by asking questions.

After the speeches all the children had the chance to vote for their favourite party using our ballot papers. We had to make sure we put a cross in the box.

 

After the votes were counted we found out who was the winning party and the winners were the D.I.S.C.O party.  They got to make a winning speech to remind the pupils of their promises. Party leader  Skye said ‘she didn’t expect this and that the party will prove they were the correct choice’ after winning the vote.

 

Rocket launch

As part of our space topic Primary 7 launched rockets, we had to work out the best angle to launch our rocket in order to get to travel the furthest distance. We recorded our data and worked as a team. IMG_6905
