Wow! What sporting superstars our pupils have been recently! Recently the boys and girls at Kirkcolm (and part of the wider trio) have worked their absolute socks off lately and gained some sporting success in a couple of tournaments so obviously we are going to have to big up these champions!
On Friday, at the schools football tournament, our team (despite having only 1 after school football training session) managed to lock down third place (missing out second on sheer goal differences)! This success was against all the larger town schools and our fellow village school fellows and we are just so absolutely over the moon with the outstanding effort and determination from our boys!
Their successful efforts were a combination of Kirkcolm’s George, Oliver, Luke, Alfie and Calder over the course of a few weeks, working fantastically with pupils from both Leswalt and Portpatrick. Well done troops, all those break time tackles have paid off!
Then we follow up with our badminton extra-ordinaires who entered into the badminton competition, kindly hosted by Alison Murray, who has been in helping to teach the pupils the ins and outs of the game as well as running an after school badminton session.
Kirkcolm Pupils cleaned up house!
In P5, Mr Jack Howie secured the title on 1st boy!
In P7, we locked down 1st girl with Miss Olivia Turtle!
Finally, our P7 boys just thought they’d clean up house in all positions with Calder Farquhar in 3rd, Luke Butler in 2nd and George Keith in 1st!
