P5 Shinty!

Many thanks to coach Ian MacDonald from https://edinburghshinty.org for stepping in to deliver shinty taster sessions on the Meadows for all three P5 classes on Monday 27th March. Ian pedalled home and arrived with helmets and sticks to provide an exciting and fun filled introduction, thoroughly enjoyed by all the pupils. Above and beyond! Thank you to coach Paul MacArthur for arranging and hope we see many of our pupils taking up the chance to join JGHS shinty clubs running after the holidays on Saturdays and Tuesdays for P5.
