Judo Masterclass with Euan Burton

As you may have read on the P7 class blog we were delighted to have Euan Burton, a former pupil, back at school on Thursday for a Judo Masterclass in conjunction with National School Sports Week, which we have signed up to take part in during June.

The event even made the national press with an article in The Scotsman on Friday,


The P5-7 pupils really enjoyed the experience.  P1-4 were also able to take part in some Judo demonstration sessions in the afternoon which was run by Sportif Judo, the local club.
