Active Schools Gymnastics Competition

Today our gymnastics team attended the Active Schools competition at Craigswood Sports Centre. Many schools from across West Lothian were in attendance and our children really gave a good account of themselves, both in their performance and the way they conducted themselves throughout.

All gymnasts have been working hard on their routines during the afterschool club and at home and their work paid off as they delivered a great performance on the vault and in their floor routines. The judges were all impressed with the standard of our competitors this year, with Sophie in P5 winning a Silver Medal in the Level 2 category – what an achievement!

Well done to all the children who took part today – you did yourselves proud!

The choir were led by Mrs England our music specialist. The choir sang a medley of Christmas songs and everyone said they really enjoyed the performance.

School updates

Here are a few things we have done over the past few weeks!


Burns Supper

Primary 7 planned and prepared a Burns Supper. They got to invite one guest and they even got to have some Haggis, neeps and tatties! They performed many different talents such as poetry, dance, art work, music, and comedy. They also performed Scottish songs such as Loch Lomond and Caledonia. It was an amazing night and everyone enjoyed it.

We have many after school clubs for all of the classes. Here is a list of some of the clubs.

. Monday – p2-3 multi sports

Many of the after school clubs are available to join. This is a good way to get active!

P3 football festival

On the 13th of January P3 went to Bathgate to compete against other schools in a football festival. Here is what Ben says about this festival.

“It was really fun and we got to play many cool games. We even got to have a warm up game.”

As you can see Bellsquarry has had a very exciting last few weeks.
