Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Curling’s Cool!


Primary 7 from Portpatrick, Leswalt and Kirkcolm were treated to a fabulous curling experience at the North West Castle today.

The children were split into teams of 5 with each member allocated a role as either sweepers, throwers or a skip 🥌

Gail gave a motivating speech, sharing all of the success of our local curlers have had – helping to put Stranraer on the map!📍

After a warm up and a shot on the ice, children were put into teams. The winners were judged on the best performance out of eight tries of getting a stone as close to the target as possible.

There was a break for juice and biscuits kindly provided by the North West Castle. Our thanks to all the coaches and to the NWC for their kind hosting! 

Then it was time for the team games – all of the boys and girls worked well together to play a curling game, but the winners of the day were our very own Jack, Alfie and Danny – who have been wearing their medals with pride 🥇 – well done boys! 

Again, a big thanks to Gail and all at the NWC! Everyone had a fab afternoon – and you never know, maybe one of our little team will be the next future Stranraer curling  Olympians 🥌
