A team of 4 boys and 4 girls visited Woodfarm last Friday with Mrs McGarvey to take part in a Cluster Badminton Tournament. The team had the opportunity to play singles, doubles and mixed doubles games. We enjoyed taking part and wish Giffnock, the cluster winners, success in the East Renfrewshire Tournament later in the session. Some of the team are attending the Badminton Event at the Emirates Arena this weekend after our school obtained free tickets. The badminton after school club will continue next term led by Mrs McGarvey.
We are delighted to announce that we raised £1138 from this event. Thanks you so much to all who took part with such enthusiasm and who donated. This money will allow us to fund coaches for afterschool clubs and to support the swimming initiative in our cluster. Thanks for your support
Mrs Baxter will be attending our assembly before the end of term to issue awards to pupils who have been selected by coaches, teachers and volunteers to receive the award. Pupils have been chosen due to their excellent sportsmanship, determination and respect for others and the leaders whilst at the clubs. Awards will be issued to pupils who have also excelled in the sport/ activity.
