Pri­mary school sports day fun

The Oban Times - - District -

ST COLUMBA’S Pri­mary School en­joyed the sun­shine for their an­nual school sports day on Fri­day.

The chil­dren were piped in to Moss­field Sta­dium by Oban High School Pipe Band for a pa­rade in their clan groups be­fore the games be­gan.

They started with a fan­tas­tic per­for­mance from their team in the in­ter-schools mile race and won first place. Cal­lie Camp­bell, Char­lie MacKen­zie, Daniel Beaton and Jes­sica Gra­ham were very pleased to be bring­ing the shield back to the St Columba’s tro­phy cabi­net. The rest of the day also had many vic­to­ries and lot of fun and laugh­ter from all the chil­dren who en­joyed a va­ri­ety of events from the sack race to the more ad­ven­tur­ous hop­per and three-legged race. Much to ev­ery­one’s de­light, the moth­ers and fa­thers races were both very busy and pro­vided great en­ter­tain­ment for the cheer­ing spec­ta­tors. Well done to all the pre-school­ers and tod­dlers who took part in the lit­tle races and who joined in on en­joy­ing an ice-lolly af­ter all the ex­cite­ment.

The school would like to thank all the won­der­ful peo­ple who helped make it such a fun event: Oban High School Pipe Band, Oban High School vol­un­teer staff and stu­dents, the Par­ent Coun­cil and all the fam­i­lies who came to watch and en­joy the day. And well done to all the chil­dren who showed great sports­man­ship.
