Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Kirkcolm Mini Walk


The day finally came around and on Friday the 12th of May we had our annual school summer fundraiser – The Kirkcolm Mini Walk! After a few changes in days here and there, it was decided we would host this historic event on the Friday to ensure all pupils could make the most of the sunshine and enjoy their fitness together (hopefully taking the pressure off everyone’s weekend commitments!) We had a smasher of a day for it too! 

The sun was shining and there was a lovely breeze to keep us cool! After an early lunch, the whole school set off at 1:15 to complete the 5 mile loop around Corsewall Estate and The Scar! Some chose to run, some chose to walk, some went solo and some brought along their big person to come and enjoy the fun with them! There was no pressure, the only thing we wanted was to see everyone participate and enjoy! 

In a true mark of Kirkcolm team work, we actually had 3 overall winners as James, Ivan and Danny chose to come over the finish line at the same time – demonstrating great sportsmanship and  teamwork which allowed them to get each other through it and keep pushing each other on!

The results are as follows; 

1st Boys: James Turtle, Danny Dougan & Ivan Turtle

2nd Boy: Jack Howie 

3rd Boy: Noah McGrory

1st Girl: Phoebe Manson 

2nd Girl: Sally Warwick 

3rd Girl: Rebecca Manson

Well done to all who participated, everyone gave it their best shot! Special well done to the hard work of the parent council who worked tirelessly to pull it all together! You all deserved your ice lollies at the end for sure! 

Thank you to Jemima Johnstone for the cracking photos!
