Loretto will hold it Sports Day on Friday 16th June. The children will compete in Houses to earn points for both their House and themselves. These points will be added to the House Points already earned throughout the year. The Winning House and the Sports Champions will be announced at our Celebration of Achievement at the end of term. This year there will be a few changes to our usual format as we plan to have more races. Unfortunately, there will not be time for adult races. The children will be given House badges but can wear House colours if they wish. We are still in need of parent helpers, so if you can help, please give your name to the school office. We still require ten adult helpers. All helpers should meet with Mrs Ramage on the football pitch at 9am on Friday. Thank you for your support.
On a very hot Thursday, almost 20 children from Loretto represented the school at an Athletics Comp @ Meadowmill. Conditions were unusual for an outdoor sports event in Scotland! Not what we are used to. Fortunately, we had come well prepared with caps, sunscreen and water and luckily there was also sunscreen and water provided. Our team did their very best and encouraged each other to run fast, throw far and jump high. It was a great team effort and our relay teams did very well. Loretto managed to be amongst the medal winners. We won both the P6 girls High Jump and the P6 girls 160m. Thanks to Mrs Sellwood who prepared the pupils. The girls will receive their medals at a whole school assembly. Well Done.
