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!

Active Schools’ Football

Following an exciting train journey yesterday afternoon, Busby was ably represented in the first of this year’s Active Schools’ Football events.  Our pupils had the opportunity to pit their skills against teams from Giffnock Primary, Braidbar Primary and Thornliebank Primary.

A record of one defeat, two draws and a victory made for a successful afternoon and all pupils participating thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

 

East Renfrewshire Cross Country

Today saw the annual East Renfrewshire Schools Cross Country championship held at Rouken Glen Park.  A team of 16 pupils from P5 to P7 represented Busby.  All pupils were a credit to the school, pushing themselves physically to complete a gruelling, muddy course.

Although we were unsuccessful in  terms of collecting silverware, all those involved should be extremely proud of their individual and team performances.  They were all amazing!

 

Cluster Badminton Championship

Yesterday, we were represented by 8 pupils in the Active Schools Cluster Badminton Championships held at Carolside Primary.  All team members played extremely well, and after all of the amazing rallies and games, we finished a very respectable second.

Well done to all the participants, who represented the school fantastically and demonstrated great sportsmanship, whether in victory or defeat.
