Pupils enjoy cross country and a wide selection of taster sessions
While most Ruglonians will think of Landemer as a single event on the second Saturday of June, the gala is actually the culmination of a series of events.
This year was no different, with two big sporting events taking place in the lead up to the main event.
First up was the annual cross country competition in Overtoun Park.
Primary five, six and seven children from James Aiton, Calderwood, Burgh and Bankhead battled it out in the early summer heat for the top prize.
In the end it was the team from Calderwood who took the honours, with Landemer Queen Jennifer McLaughlin on hand to present to the trophy.
Two days later, on Thursday, June 9, all eyes turned to the Lifestyle Centre in Eastfield where a multi- sport festival was held.
Around 180 pupils from six local schools participated in tennis, football, cricket, athletics, rugby and hockey.
The schools who took part were St Charles, St Mark’s, James Aiton, Spittal, Cathkin, and West Coats.
Pupils were able to enjoy taster sessions put on by volunteers from the likes of Cambuslang Rugby Club, Uddingston Hockey Club, Uddingston Cricket Club, and Cambuslang Football Academy, as well as experienced coaches from South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture.
The event was run by the Landemer committee in partnership with the Stonelaw Community Sport Hub, Cambuslang and Rutherglen Sports Council, Active Schools, South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture, and the local clubs
