Our Athletics team took part in the first of our competitions last week and they did very well.

We were in a group with Kilmalcolm Primary, St Ninian’s, St Joseph’s and St Mary’s Primaries.

Our boys’ team came first and our girls’ team came first which meant we won overall.

We took part in lots of different events and had lots of success in them.

In the boys’ event we won the following events, Vertical Jump where Alan Roxburgh had the best jump of the day. Scott Marshall also had the best jump in the Standing Long Jump and Lewis Gillan had the fastest time in the Hi-Stepper.

In the girls event we won the following events, Over & Under Obstacle race, 1+1 Relay race, 2+2 Relay race, Hi-Stepper, Standing Long Jump, Standing Triple Jump and Vertical Jump. Morgan Bailey had the best throw in the Javelin and Claire Steele had the best time in the Hi-Stepper and the best Vertical Jump.

We also won the Reserves race.

P7 Meet the Teacher

Parents of P7 were invited to observe and participate in a gymnastics lesson.

Pupils have developed their gymnastic skills during the first term and were able to demonstrate their learning at 6 different stations.

Demonstrating safe jumps and flips from the large horse, rolls and jumps on the low horse, freedom of expression and movement across the wall bars, various ways of balancing along the beam, 5 point sequences on the floor mats (incorporating starting/ending positions rolls, balances, jumps…etc) and an observation and reflection station where pupils responded to their peers ideas and performances.

The afternoon proved very successful with pupils keen to show off their skills, and some brave parents participating!

P6 Rugby Tournament

In October, 24 children from Primary 6 took part in a rugby tournament at Fort Matilda Park in Greenock. The children had been taught the rules of the game over a 4 week period before the tournament. This was their chance to show off their skills on the rugby pitch. The children were a credit to the school with their excellent behaviour and their good sportsmanship.

Commonwealth Festival of Sport P7

P7 pupils across Inverclyde were invited to a festival of sports to coincide with a visit from the Queen’s Baton in the lead up to Glasgow hosting the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

The event was organised by Active Schools at Notre Dame high school. Pupils from each school were split into teams for hockey, athletics and netball.

Everyone was delighted by the appearance of Clyde, the mascot of Glasgow 2014.

The sun shone as each school competed for bronze, silver and gold medals. Special mention goes to Kristy McCann who won a bronze medal for the shot put event. Congratulations to all the pupils who displayed good sportsmanship during the tournament.

Many thanks to the Active Schools Team for organising this fantastic event which all the pupils thoroughly enjoyed.
