All the schools in the Stranraer Academy cluster were brought together to put on our running shoes and do our best in a good natured cross country competition out at Green Valley! We simply could not of asked for a better day for it; the sun was shining, not too hot and not too cool and the fantastic Alison Murray was running the show.
Kirkcolm took along their selected 15 (so.. most of the class in our case!) and were primed and ready to go. All pupils gave it their absolute best and the effort from the boys and girls was outstanding. Everybody has a positive attitude, even if running wasn’t their most favourite thing to do. One of the best parts about it was to see how much the pupils supported each other through this! Even if we weren’t the fastest – we certainly were up there with cheering the loudest!
A special shout out needs to go to Emma Drummond, who secured 2nd place in the P7 girls category, excellent effort Emma and a medal to show for your efforts! Well done!
Here are some photos of our runners from the day;
