P6/7 Interscholastics

Tuesday 2nd June –  a cold, very windy day – P6 and P7 pupils took part in the annual Edinburgh Primary Schools (EPSSA) Interscholastics event at Meadowbank. Thank you to Mrs Beth Walker, our P.E. Specialist for organising the citywide event, Mrs Nowell for escorting, to Headteacher and EPSSA President Mr Willie French for compering and to families who came to cheer on. Congratulations to all our athletes, who all competed particularly well in the Heats, qualifying for the Finals in most events, and were great sporting ambassadors for Sciennes. Very well done to Cerys for achieving a Silver medal in the Long Jump, to Archie M, Stephen, Boris and Saul for achieving Silver in the P6 Boys’ Relay and to Phoebe who, despite a stumble, still managed to achieve a Bronze medal in the Girls’ 600m race.
