The Cathkin High School an­nual P7 Sports Fes­ti­val took place last Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day .

The mini sports fes­ti­val wel­comed pri­mary seven pupils from lo­cal schools to ex­pe­ri­ence a taste of Cathkin High’s PE depart­ment.

As part of a team, they took part in var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing bad­minton, bas­ket­ball, fit­ness and vol­ley­ball.

Young­sters also had the op­por­tu­nity to work with pupils from dif­fer­ent pri­mary schools, all of whom will be head­ing to Cathkin High at the end of the school year.

The pupils spent the morn­ing of each day try­ing new ac­tiv­i­ties and be­ing as­sisted by the PE depart­ment in a friendly com­pe­ti­tion.

On Thurs­day evening, pupils were in­vited back to the school along with their par­ents.

They were given the op­por­tu­nity to speak to var­i­ous mem­bers of staff about dif­fer­ent sub­jects and were given a tour of the school by some of the se­nior pupils in Cathkin.

Pupils from S2 helped out the PE depart­ment and col­lected quotes from the pri­mary pupils.

The P7s com­mented that it was great meet­ing lots of peo­ple from dif­fer­ent schools, that the events were amaz­ing and they can’t wait to come up to High School.

They en­joyed ev­ery ac­tiv­ity and found it re­ally in­ter­est­ing to try out new sports.

Mrs Levey, a de­pute at Cathkin High School, was thrilled with how smoothly the two events and the Par­ents In­for­ma­tion evening had gone.

She said: “These kind of days at the school are in­valu­able, not only to get a feel for the school it­self but also to meet new peo­ple and to see the teach­ers be­fore the big change up to High school.

“I would like to thank all the teach­ers and staff mem­bers who made the P7 vis­its so unique”.
