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 :)

Map of Glasgow - Pollok Country Park MapTerrain description

Glasgow’s largest park has undergone a transformation & the Orienteering Permanent Course is a welcome addition to the facilities available to the public.

The City Council’s rhododendron project to contain the spread of this vegetation ended in 2009 but did not result in every rhododendron bush being shredded.
