Almost all of our P6 and P7 classes took part in the Active Sports cross country competition at Rozelle Park today. The pupils really challenged themselves not just to beat own personal bests but also to finish the course.
Well done to our football team. They were great ambassadors for the school during a recent match against Symington Primary earlier in the week. They demonstrated our school values and were excellent sports people.
Congratulations to our ‘design a book cover’ competition winners. All the entries were of a very high standard and difficult to judge but eventually a winner was chosen from each stage. The parents running the book fayre chose the books for the winners.
On the Wednesday 14th of December we went to a school football tournament at the Whitletts activity centre. We were quickly told about the rules and then we were told who we were playing first. We were on the bench first. The games were 7 minutes. We played Alloway first. It was a tough game but we managed to score one to seal the game. We had a quick drinks break then watched the Grammar vs Alloway game then we were quickly on against Forehill in our 2nd match. The game kicked off and we quickly grabbed a goal we were in complete domination in the match and grabbed a 2nd goal. The game ended 2-0 Holmston. Our 3rd and final match was against Grammar we were determined not to concede and we got what we wanted! We quickly came on and bagged a goal not long after we scored again then in the last minute of the match we scored and the whistle was blown for full time.
Overall we scored 6 goals as a team
Conceded 0 goals
And won all 3 games!!
