Skiing Success!

On the 26th October Hamish, Archie, Laura, Duncan, Dugald, Murdo and Molly set off to Tillicoultry for a school skiing competition. Other primary and secondary schools from around Stirling also competed. It was pretty cold in the morning. There were a lot of people there. They all participated in a long warm up before the competition started. When the races started it was really exciting! The pupils were separated into two teams called “Slick St.Mary’s” and “St.Mary’s Superstars”. We had to do a slalom against another team (dual slalom) The first team came third overall out of all the schools there, they qualified for the finals in the primary category in Glasgow on 12th November. Everybody was extremely proud of the bronze medals they won and everyone really enjoyed developing their skiing skills. Murdo said “it was really fun and it was 10 out of 10!” Archie, Hamish, Sophie and Dugald got through to the Glasgow finals and got 4th place – they did very well.

We interviewed Dugald and he said he felt proud and so did Molly.
