Congratulations to our two netball teams. They were taking part in the Sports Festival Netball Competition this evening (25/05/16). We’re delighted to report that it was an all-Back final with our two teams making it all the way. The final winners were the Pinks and Yellows were runners-up. Well done to all our pupils and a huge thank you to their coaches and the parents that supported them.
Well done to our boys and girls teams who took part in the Rural Sports last week. They all did really well and finished as runners-up to Stornoway Primary in the section for schools of more than 50 pupils.
On our third attempt, we were able to go ahead today with our Sports Day this morning at the Stornoway running track. Thank you to all the parents and other families who attended to cheer on the children in their races.
Congratulations to our netball teams who competed in the Sports Festival yesterday evening. One of the teams made it through to the final against Stornoway Primary and won 4-2, crowning them champions. As well as congratulating the girls, we’d like to say thanks to the three parents who have given up their time every week to coach them. Thank you Mrs Macritchie, Mrs Mackay and Mrs Maciver.
