Fun and games for Oban high school pupils
OBAN high school held its annual games day last Friday, with the young athletes managing to stay dry enough to allow all the events to go ahead.
This was the third year that the games have been held the day after the Argyllshire Gathering, at Mossfield Stadium.
The Argyllshire Gathering committee allows the school to use their equipment including the large tents, which housed arts and crafts activities throughout the day.
Head of PE at Oban high, Murray Hamilton, said that the individual championships had been of a very high standard and very close. In some cases only one point separated the winning and second place athletes.
