Tennis Update!

Hot off the press News!

Yesterday, at Scotstoun Leisure Centre our four P4 Tennis Stars competed in the West Region Primary Schools Finals.

With flashing forehands and beautiful backhands on show they challenged for every point, acquitting themselves magnificently, whilst showing immaculate sportsmanship.

Finishing in an amazing second place, narrowly beaten by The High School of Glasgow’s Junior School, the team should be very proud of their achievements.  All of the Busby Family are extremely proud of them.

Andy Murray is now officially looking over his shoulder!

P6 Cluster Maths Challenge

Yesterday, a selection of our P6 pupils had the opportunity to compete in the annual Williamwood P6 Cluster Maths Challenge.  The pupils were put into mixed teams, and worked alongside their peers from Carolside and Netherlee.  They were challenged by a variety of different stations, undertook the 12 Card Challenge and completed in the ever-popular Maths relay.

Much fun was had by all, and the pupils maths knowledge was definitely evident.  Special congratulations must go to:

Harris, Jennifer and Erin, who finished in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd finishing teams!

Cluster K’Nex

Today saw four of our pupils compete in the Cluster K’Nex challenge, taking on teams from the other schools.  The pupils had to work effectively as a team to design and build a crane.  After much hard work and dextrous manufacture, the team of Jennifer and Erin (P6) triumphed and will now go on to represent the Cluster at the Regional Final.

Well done girls we are extremely proud of you!

“This was our first competition.  Our crane was really strong and we worked really well as a team.  We ended up winning the event and are really excited to be going to the Regional Challenge!”

Samuel and Cameron also competed.  We are very proud of their efforts too, the model looks great!

“We really enjoyed working together.  We built a crane with rope and K’Nex.  The design was like a digger, with a crane attachment.  It was a fantastic afternoon!”
