Tiree School Sports Day
Tiree High School Sports Day started of with a Rainbow Olympics for Pre 5-P3 children. The Rainbow themed events saw children jumping (over the rainbow), running, balancing, throwing and pulling, showing everybody the skills and qualities they have been developing in PE lessons.
The afternoons Inter House Track and field saw pupils from P4-S6 battle it out for their respective houses – Clansman, Columba and Claymore. Every pupil took part in seven events whereby they tried to achieve their best possible time, distance or height to achieve one of the four standards-participation (5 points), Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond (25 points). The emphasis is on being the best you possibly can be and having fun whilst doing so.
It was a great afternoon with bags of determination, grit and school spirit on display. The afternoon finished with the Tiree pipe band playing whilst the crowds cheered on the houses pulling with all their might in the Tug of war.
All the children were able to get a lovingly made rainbow fruit stick to refresh them, made by the Parent council. The family watching treated themselves to something from the Cobbled Calf.
After all the results were tallied up Clansman won the day by just two points but the Johnny MacKenzie Trophy for Inter-House Sport was shared between Clansman and Columba due to results in other interhouse events throughout the year. Claymore were only just behind and are looking strong for next year…..
