Mrs Elliot, our PE teacher, was at the EPSA Interscholastics event at Meadowbank on Monday with our P6 and P7 most successful athletics team ever! The pupils were great and every one represented Currie Primary School fabulously on and off the track and field. Currie Primary School came 8th overall out of 39 schools, which is a fantastic result. The boys team came third overall and we got into all the running semi-finals and last 10 in all field events.
A very special congratulation to Maddie who got into the final of the 80m (P6 and under) and came 5th, and to Mackenzie, Joseph, Matthew and Daniel our P6 boys relay team coming 4th after a photo finish – yes the judges had to look at a photo finish to decide 3rd and 4th place! Our P7 boys ran a fantastic race in the relay, winning easily and missed out on the record by just 0.08 of a second – well done Theo, Leni, Sam and Andrew! Finally, a huge congratulation to Theo who won the long jump, smashing the long jump record by 17cm, jumping a massive 4.80 m!
Thank you to Mrs Elliot for getting our team ready for this event and for losing her voice shouting everyone on, on the day!
