Interscholastics and Sports Day

Image result for interscholastics edinburgh 2019Last Monday was the annual Edinburgh ‘A’ Schools Interscholastic Athletics event, held at Myreside Stadium.

Broughton sent our team of P6 and P7 athletes, who took part in a range of relay and individual races, as well as cricket ball throwing!

Although we didn’t win any medals, we all participated to our very best abilities, and represented the school well! Here are some photos of the event, thanks to our star photographer, Ivon Bartholomew!

Well done to everyone for making it on to the team, and taking part so well!

Yesterday we held our Sports Day over at Botanical Broughton. The sun shone for us, and we all had a great day of sports, with a wide range of different events!

Here are some photos of the day. We held our P4-P7 sports in the morning, and the P1-P3 event in the afternoon.

For our P4-7 sports, each class has one boy winner, and one girl winner. Here is a list of our winners from P4-P7.

P4a- Erin and Antoni

P4b- Mariyah and Oliver

P5a- Jana and Jakub

P5b- Holly and Cameron

P6a- Holly and Logan

P6b- Isla and Seth

P7a- Roisin and Jed

P7b- Jess and Jay



Our infant sports is run slightly differently, where a class is awarded a trophy for scoring the most points overall. Our winning class was P2B! Well done!



For both events, all the points scored were added to each of the 4 houses to come up with a grand total for Sports. Here are the totals-

1st McDonald 1329 points

2nd Pilrig 1233 points

3rd Trinity 1209 points

4th Drummond 1206 points

Well done McDonald! All the house points will be added to the running totals we have been gathering for each house all year, and our overall house shield will be awarded in the last week of term!

Well done to everyone for making yesterday such a big success! Special thanks to Mrs Ramm, and Mrs  Rushforth whose planning and organisation made yesterday run smoothly!
