Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Sports Day!


The sun was shining, the ice lollies were chilling in the freezer and the lines were (somewhat faintly) painted on the freshly cut grass. It can only mean one thing – Sports Day is here! 

We do love any opportunity to go outside in the sunshine, so this was very welcomed this bright Friday afternoon. P6/7 and Mr MacGregor worked their socks off to get all the equipment outside and set up, then we had an early lunch today to enable us to get started at 1:15 sharp! 

We had our usual races; 

  • Running
  • Skipping 
  • Sack
  • Egg & Spoon 
  • Throwing 

We had an additional race of a fun obstacle course arrange and designed by House Captains! 

Then we finished off with our long distance race and the House relay race. 

To add an extra bit of fun this year, we had an additional House Challenge in the form of a Tug of War (suggested by James Turtle!) Mrs McHarg managed to source an (extremely heavy) rope for the pupils to use (a big thank you to the Young Farmers for lending it to us!)

This was a great wee watch as young pupils got somewhat swept of their feet while the older ones had the grit and determination painted on their faces in their efforts to win!

Finally the classic tiny people race and then the ladies and gents races to invite all parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles etc. who spectated to come join in the fun! We also said another wee goodbye to Vladislav, who will be leaving us today to go back to Ukraine. 

Here are some photos of the day!
