The Cross Country Running Competition – by Daniel L

A while ago there was a running competition called The Cross Country.   It was held at Meadowmill and there were a lot of other schools there.

Daniel, Charlie, Tom, Scott, Fraser, took part in the big school boys race.  Tom won the category of boys from a larger school.

We all enjoyed taking part.

Sporting Successes

We sent two teams consisting of P6 and P7 pupils to the recent ELPSSA hockey tournament at Meadowmill, where a great day was had by all. One of our teams made it to the final, where a defeat to Kings Meadow Primary resulted in second place, but a qualification to the Regional Finals at Peffermill in the summer term.

Our other team came in third place on the day, and qualifies for the SHU National Hockey Day to be held in Glasgow in June. What a superb achievement for both our teams.

The team members were: Freya L, Imogen C, Morven C, Amy C, Iona S, Megan F, Ellis M, Anna D, Isla M, Emily C, Freya E, Lily W, and Olivia T.

A team of our P7 girls recently took part in the annual football tournament, an event that we have not had much success in in previous years, being up against very strong opposition from other schools. This year the opposition was of an equally high standard but our girls rose to the challenge, beating every team they played and bringing the trophy back to Gullane. Fantastic job, ladies!

The team members were: Lucy T, Anna D, Ellis M, Megan F, Iona S, Morven C, Ella D and Freya L.

In October, a team of P7 girls and a team of P7 boys took part in the East Lothian Rugby Tournament, with the girls in a pool of 18 teams and the boys in one of 20 teams. The standard of rugby was superb and the opposition was strong, but both our teams reached the semi-finals. The girls lost to Kings Meadow at this stage, but the boys had a good win against Kings Meadow to reach the finals. Up against Yester Primary for the last match of the tournament, the boys performed fantastically well, with a good win to secure the trophy for Gullane, an achievement that we have not seen for the last fifteen years. Huge congratulations to both teams for such impressive results.

The team members were: Lucy T, Anna D, Ellis M, Megan F, Iona S, Amy C, Imogen C, Morven C, Calum M, Scott M-N, Tom M, Alex S, Alfie A, Duncan L, Ben S and Seamus T.

Sports Day – 13th June 2014

This will take place on the morning of 13th June. We aim to start about 10am. Parents, friends and relatives are very welcome. Following the event the children will be taken back into their classes and parents are more than welcome to collect their child from the class teacher to go home (around 12/12.15).

Please do not ask to take your child until they have been returned and the register checked. This ensures we account for every child and that they are safe.

I would ask that parents do not give their child food or any other items while sports day is underway. The children will have a break before and then an ‘orange stop’. You are more than welcome to stay on the grounds and have a picnic after the event. If the weather is nice it can be a lovely way to spend an hour or so.

If Sports Day is not going to run due to weather or other circumstances beyond our control we will text all families by 8am that morning. We would make a decision then as many families will have plans and such like that may require altering if the event is cancelled.
