Cross-Country Competition

This morning saw 11 pupils represent Pinkie at Meadowmill in a cross-country competition. All the pupils should be proud of their achievement and resilience shown on very challenging track conditions amongst a competitive field of runners from around East Lothian. Without being biased…. Pinkie certainly had some of the strongest finishers down that last 200m! Check out photos and quotes from the day. – Mr Drysdale

“It was very muddy when we were running and also very tiring but it was really fun and I managed to complete it in 8minutes 32 seconds!” Isla – P5a

“The people who were running tried there best and did amazing!” Emma –  P5a

“Thank you to the marshals for being to help us, direct us and keep us safe” Abbie – P5a

“It was very fun, active and it was a privilege to go” Miya – P6a


Return of Cross-Country – Tuesday 20th

I am sure everyone is keen to work off their post-holiday sleepiness… so Cross-Country Club is on as normal, tomorrow at 8.25 meeting outside the gym hall doors.

Make sure to come along as it will be the first opportunity to be timed which will help choose competitors for our team. The weather looks as though it should be fine, but make sure to bring suitable kit as always.

Cross-Country Club

The first cross-country club session started out the blocks with great success this morning, despite the weather! 36 pupils met half an hour before the bell to warm up and run at least 1.5km around our huge school grounds!

A big congratulations to all the pupils who came along who seemed to really enjoy it and who gave it their all. Also, a massive thanks to Miss Hunter, Miss Smillie and Miss Christie who came out with the large group and ran too, to encourage and make sure everyone was ok.

We will meet again, outside the gym hall fire doors at 8.25 next Tuesday. … A quick reminder that pupils must  be wearing suitable kit for all weathers to school, and then there is time to get changed after to school uniform.
