On Tuesday 17th November, the whole school enjoyed a Scottish day. Greenloaning Primary joined us too.

A big thank you to Mrs Paget and Mrs MacGregor who came along and helped to plan this day.

Emily Greaves and Celtman

Emily Greaves (The Schools’ Sports Co-ordinator) came and gave us a brilliant talk about her achievement of completing the Celtman.

This is an extreme Triathlon. Emily came 25th in a field of 157 competitors!

She told us about her training plan, the event and what it takes to complete an event like this.

She was a great inspiration to the children and staff.

Emily also raised funds of over £2000 for schools that she works for.

Thank you Emily for visiting us and telling us about your amazing  feat!

Commonwealth Day

P1-7 went to the Commonwealth Day held at Crieff High School at the Strathearn Campus on Wednesday 25th June, 2014.

We joined the other schools in the Crieff cluster including the High School.

First of all we marched behind the Crieff High School Pipe band with our Malawi flag.

Then we were treated to the opening dance, in which some of our older girls were in.

One of our pupils in P7 was also presented with an award for designing the logo for the day.

Well done BM!

We then split up into classes and did different activities such as rugby, potted sports, music etc…

A big thank you to Emily Greaves and her team from Crieff High School for organising this event!

Sports Day

Well…..the rain held off and we had a great Sports Day!
All the children from Nursery right up to P7 took part. First of all they took part in potted sports in their house teams.
After a short break they competed in the Tattie and Spoon Race, the Sack Race, the Running Race and then the Relay Race.
The house team which won this year was Orchil!
Thank you very much to all our volunteers, who helped to run this. Also thank you to Mrs Dawson and Mr Irvine who organised it all.

The Big Pedal

The whole school took part in the Big Pedal which Mrs Glendinning arranged.

We tried to get as many children to come to school on their scooters or bicycles and staff and parents were encouraged to do so too.

Each day  a bike had a blue horn placed on it and whoever’s bike it was, won some goodies.

Our numbers significantly increased doing this by the last day.

Also on the last day we had great fun dressing up as superheroes.

Thank you to Mrs Glendinning for arranging this for us.

Sports Day

We had a fabulous Sports Day! The rain held off and the children all did their best!

Lots of parents came to give their support, which was great!

The children first of all did potted sports which Miss Howley had arranged. They got into their houses to earn points for the House Cup. They then had sack races, egg and spoon races, running races and a house relay race.

In the end Ardoch won the cup!   Well done however, to everyone who competed. ☺
