Primary Sports Day 2017

The Primary Sports Day may have been called off shortly after it began- but that didn't put a dampener on the fun and games. 

Hundreds of pupils braved the rain on Saturday to take part in annual event, with thunder storms bringing the day to an abrupt end. 

There were lots of smiles from family and friends who cheered on pupils from P1-4 as they marched into the Alix Jamieson Stadium led by the School's very own furry mascot- Squirrel Hutchkins at exactly 1pm. 

The children then split off into groups to enjoy a variety of games, taking part in the flat race, hoop race, bat and bean race, partner race and the egg and spoon race. 

In true Hutchie tradition, everyone dressed to impress in house colours, with senior pupils awarding stickers to the winners just before the heavens opened. 

The 1957 Group were on hand to provide refreshments, with dozens taking shelter under their canopy to enjoy hot drinks, snacks and popcorn- proving very popular with everyone. 

Thanks go to the P.E. department for all of their hard work helping friends, families, school staff and pupils once the day came to an abrupt end.
