On Thursday 29th November 2018, a special assembly was held in order that Steven Lytham from Sports Scotland could present us with a plaque and a flag for achieving the GOLD award. We invited the parents of the children on the Sports Committee and we were very privileged that the Director of Education, Mr Tony McDaid also came to see the award being presented. Mr McDaid said a few words to us telling us how impressed he is that we gained this award and that we should all work together to ensure we get the award renewed in three years time. We were able to achieve this award by demonstrating an on-going commitment to increasing children’s opportunities and engagement in physical education, school sport and leadership and providing clear pathways to life-long participation in sport. This award recognises our school’s achievements in putting sport at the heart of our planning, practice and ethos. Well done to Miss Hill and her Sports Committee
