Cathkin pupils en­joy sport fest

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Cathkin High wel­comed lo­cal pri­mary seven pupils to ex­pe­ri­ence a taste of high school in the form of a mini sports fes­ti­val.

The an­nual event saw stu­dents take part in var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing bad­minton, bas­ket­ball, fit­ness and vol­ley­ball last month.

They 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.

Pupils spent the morn­ing of each day try­ing new ac­tiv­i­ties and be­ing as­sisted by the PE de­part­ment.

They were then in­vited back to the school along with their par­ents for an in­for­ma­tion evening and were given the op­por­tu­nity to ask var­i­ous mem­bers of staff about dif­fer­ent sub­jects.

Par­ents were given a tour of the school by some of the se­nior pupils in Cathkin.

Mrs Blair, a de­pute at Cathkin High, was thrilled with how smoothly the two days and the par­ents evening went.

She said:“These days 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’d like to thank the teach­ers and staff mem­bers who made the P7 vis­its so unique.”
