Sports day fun for St Columba’s pupils

The Oban Times - - News -

PUPILS from Oban’s St Columba’s Pri­mary School en­joyed a fun and ac­tion-packed sports day on Fri­day May 19 at Moss­field Sta­dium.

The chil­dren were piped into the ground by Oban High School Pipe Band and did a lap of the track in their clans.

They wore their clan colours of Iona, Gar­tan, Derry and Clonard, with colour­ful painted faces and hair­styles on dis­play.

The start­ing event was the inter-school mile race which re­sulted in St Columba’s re­tain­ing the win­ning shield. Well done to the win­ning team of Cal­lie Camp­bell, Natalie Lopez, Char­lie MacKen­zie and Daniel Beaton, and ev­ery­one who took part in the event.

Chil­dren took part in var­i­ous events with younger pupils en­joy­ing the hoop, jump­ing and run­ning races, while the older ones had great fun with the three-legged, wheel bar­row and skip­ping races.

There was a great turn out of spec­ta­tors and the day ended with the pre-school race with lots of lit­tle ones en­joy­ing tak­ing part. An ice lolly was a great treat to cool ev­ery­one down at the end.

The school thanks ev­ery­one who helped make it a suc­cess and well done to ev­ery­one for tak­ing part.
