STAG’s 24th Primary Schools Festival - Tues 10th June 2014 - Pollok CP

Yes ! after a 9 year break STAG reintroduced an event for Primary Children this time alongside the Blairvadach Adventure Race. Results shall be posted as soon as possible.
Thanks to Mr.Jamie Coll & my students from John Paul Academy for their invaluable assistance & Tom & Aileen from Blairvadach’s Staff.

The Blairvadach Adventure Race used Sportident Timing System & both Blairvadach Staff & myself are indebted to Robin Strain who very kindly gave of his time to facilitate correct use of the technology.

6 courses have been planned focused around the Burrell Collection & adjacent track network. 12 students from my S4 PE National Class will be helping organise & sort out results.

Once its over time for a well deserved break so I can get back to a degree of normality :)
