We are the Kirkhill Sports Committee.

 We have been meeting to chat about how we can take sport forward even more in Kirkhill.

 A few months ago, we applied for a very special award called the Sport Scotland Gold Award. This is very special because only a very small number of schools are awarded Gold for their Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport. We have just found out that Kirkhill is the only primary school in East Renfrewshire to have been awarded a Gold Award and we will be presented with a Sport Scotland Gold flag as a reward. This is because of our PE lessons, our extra-curricular clubs, our playground activities (like the MUGA and PLAYZONE) and all of our Health Weeks and Sports Days.

 We just wanted to say a HUGE well done to all of the staff, pupils and volunteers who work so hard and go the extra mile. . . it is due to all of you that we have received this award!
