Apologies to our fantastic athletes for this article not being published earlier on in the year, but we decided that its never too late to celebrate the achievements of our pupils, even though most of the team are now at Balfron High School.
A team of 10 athletes from P6 and P7 participated in the 2013 Active Stirling Track and Field Championship at Stirling University at the end of May. Pupils participated in the long jump, javelin, 80m, 150m and 600m. Our athletes all tried really hard and were great ambassadors for the school. Well done to our Athletics Team.
Kippen Primary came back with an impressive medal collection. Gabrielle won a silver medal in the 80m, Anna W won a bronze medal in the 600m and the Girls relay team (Maeve, Jessica, Anna W, Kaitlyn and Gabrielle) won a bronze in the relay.
Hopefully this year’s P6 and P7 pupils are already improving their fitness ready for the 2014 Cross Country and Track and Field Championships. These are great opportunities to meet with and compete against other primary schools in this area.
