Primary Sports Day 2018


The Primary Sports Day was a great success with hundreds of pupils and their families enjoying the fun and games at Beaton Road. 

Hundreds came along to support the annual event with pupils enjoying lots of fun games and novelty races on the day. 

As a Hutchie tradition, pupils in P1-4 enjoyed marching into the Alix Jamieson Stadium at 1pm led by teachers and the Hutchie mascot, Squirrel Hutchins with family and friends cheering on the sidelines. 

Following the parade, they split off into year groups to take part in lots of games including hoop race, partner race, the egg and spoon race and the bean bag race. 

The pupils have been busy preparing for the sports day during P.E. lessons and enjoyed receiving their winning stickers, awarded by Senior pupils. 

The class teachers had a fantastic day, with many taking part in the march and dressing up in house colours. P.E. teacher, Mr Dewar got everyone dancing as he provided the live entertainment, playing lots of popular songs to accompany the races on the track. 

At 2.45pm it was then the turn of the P5-7 children, who took part in the processions making the beginning of their Sports Day games, with Squirrel Hutchins making a second appearance! 

The pupils took part in the Inter-House 5x80 relay, hockey dribbling race, hoop race, the egg and spoon race, football dribbling race and much more! There was lots of friendly competition as they took on the fun games. 

The catering staff and the 1957 Group provided refreshments during the day. The parent-run group provided sweeties, popcorn and various treats at their stall which proved very popular throughout the day. 

Very well done to the P.E. department who organised the successful event which was enjoyed by everyone on the day.
