Dundee Schools Athletics Championships

On Wednesday 29 May twenty four of our P6 and P7 children took part in the Dundee Schools Athletics Championships at Caird Park. The children put in their best efforts and were a credit to the school. It was the first time our new school tracksuits had been worn and the children received many compliments on how smart they all looked. Many of the children reached the finals. The medals achieved were Scott P7 gold for long jump and 100 metres, Brandon P7 silver for 400 metres, Ellie P7 bronze for long jump and Daniel P6 bronze for 400 metres. Well done to everyone who took part and thanks to the parents who cheered them on.
