S1 Sports Day

The whole of S1 attended Sports Day at Linwood yesterday.   Congratulations to all of the pupils who won medals and to the year-group as a whole for taking part so enthusiastically throughout the day.  You were a credit to our school!

Thank you to all of the staff who helped with supervision, our S3 helpers  and to our wonderful PE department for organising such a fantastic day out.  Look out for more pictures of the day on the plasma screens in the Open Area.
