Active 8 Tennis Festival

P5 Tennis Festival

All P5 pupils participated in the Active 8 Williamwood Cluster Tennis Festival at Clarkston Tennis Club on Wednesday 8th June.  The children were divided into groups with peers from Carolside and Netherlee Primary schools and rotated around 13 different activity ‘stations’.  The weather was fantastic and all pupils gave very positive feedback about the day.  Our thanks go to Active Schools staff and the Sports Leaders from the high school for organising a great event.
