A special well done to our House Athletics Team Captains who did a wonderful job of organising their teams!
The S1’s took part in their annual House Athletics Championships on Tuesday. This event saw pupils taking part in a number of track and field athletic events. The sun was shining throughout and the pupils had a fantastic time competing against the other houses and cheering everyone on. Auldhouse finished 1st with Balgray a close 2nd, Duncarnock 3rd and Capelrig 4th – well done S1!

Eastwood High Pupils on Holyrood Election
Wednesday 23rd March may be a date that the Eastwood High School S1 B team would rather forget as they lost 13-1 to Woodfarm High School B team. It was always going to be a tough match and unfortunately, on this occasion, Eastwood did not rise to the challenge.
The game started and things looked promising with Woodfarm missing a penalty 5 minutes into the game. However, they came back with a goal by the seventh minute and the game seemed to go their way from that point on.
The Eastwood player’s heads went down as Woodfarm continued to score bringing it to 2-0. Eastwood’s Ross Carmichael then scored an impressive goal from 25 yards out taking the score to 2-1. It was beginning to look hopeful, but by the end of the first 3rd Woodfarm were leading 4-1 and the morale of the Eastwood team was broken.
A further 5 goals in the second 3rd took the score to 9-1 and Eastwood were beyond recovery. The game ended at full time with score of 13-1 to Woodfarm. The goal of the game was Eastwood’s, however, a single goal was never going to be enough to beat Woodfarm on that date.
