Rain­bow Games bring sun­shine in the rain

The Oban Times - - News -

IT WAS Achaleven Pri­mary’s turn to or­gan­ise sports day this year for its own pupils as well as Bar­cal­dine, Kilchre­nan, Lis­more and Strath of Ap­pin schools.

Ap­pin of­fered its fa­cil­i­ties for the day and, as the schools are a col­lec­tion of linked pri­maries, Achaleven de­cided on a col­lec­tion of colours for a theme – and called them the Rain­bow Games.

The pupils from Achaleven de­signed all the games and an ac­tive warm-up to get ev­ery­one ready. Although there was a bit of rain, it didn’t dampen spir­its and lots of fun was had and friend­ships made – af­ter all, you can’t have a rain­bow with­out a lit­tle rain.

Thanks were of­fered to Achaleven Par­ent Coun­cil for a won­der­ful spread of re­fresh­ments and good­ies to keep ev­ery­one go­ing.

The af­ter­noon saw some very com­pet­i­tive races be­ing held. There was a flat race, skip­ping, po­tato and spoon, and then an ob­sta­cle race. It was a tight bat­tle but in the end the or­ange team were vic­to­ri­ous. How­ever, the true vic­tory was in see­ing the smiles on ev­ery­one’s faces – they all had a great day.
