Bernera Primary 6 and 7 pupils joined forces with Uig P6s and 7s to make up team Bernuig, playing together in a Tchoukball Festival at the Sports Centre on Tuesady 24th February.
Tchoukball? For anyone who hasn’t heard of it, Tchoukball is a fast, indoor, non-contact team game using a soft ball and a mixture of handball and volleyball skills. Our P6s and 7s have really enjoyed the Tchoukball ‘taster’ sessions they’ve had with Active Schools Co-ordinator Jenna Stewart and Uig and Breasclete pupils in recent months and this was their first opportunity to take part in an organised event with teams from other schools.
Around 24 teams from various Lewis schools took part, and so great was the interest that the organisers had to schedule a second morning of play on Tuesday 3rd March. Our pupils all agreed that it was really good fun and they would love to do it again with MORE games! As ever, their behaviour both on and off the floor, was impeccable and they were complimented by the organisers as displaying the best teamwork skills out of all the teams taking part. Well done Bernuig!
