After being recognised by Netball Scotland as ‘School of the Year’ last session we are very much looking forward to taking netball in the school and community forward this session. Netball will return for all year groups on a Tuesday after school, starting Tuesday 29 August. We look forward to seeing our returning players and any new players would be very welcome.
Pupils in S5 and S6 must see Mr Madden to make him aware of any school-based sporting achievements from the previous school year by Friday 25 August at the latest. Former pupils who were in S6 during session 2017/18 should also make Mr Madden aware of the same.
Please note, only school-based achievements are recognised at these awards. Club-based activities continue to be recognised through the sports colours system.
