P7 News

On Saturday 5th March 2016 a group of keen P7 badminton players attended a Primary Badminton Championships hosted by Glasgow Schools Badminton Association.  The event took place in Glasgow School of Sport which gave the children the opportunity to play in this terrific facility. The competition involved a number of singles and doubles events, with some children participating in both events. The children all performed extremely well and displayed terrific sportsmanship throughout the competition. Selin Turan also secured a well deserved bronze medal in the girls’ singles event! Well-done to all seven children who participated and thanks to the parents who attended in support.

On Wednesday 23rd March 2016 two groups of four children represented Shawlands Primary at a Determined to Debate event. This event was held at Glasgow City Chambers in the debating chamber. It was a fantastic opportunity for the children and they were extremely excited about participating. At the event both teams did exceptionally well and presented themselves as confident individuals, successful learners, effective contributors and responsible citizens. Each team debated either for or against a renewable form of energy. The points were put across confidently and respectfully which resulted in Shawlands Team 2 winning the whole debate and Shawlands Team 1 securing second place (out of 9 schools). A special award was also given to individuals who performed well in their individual roles. Well done to Jack McLaughlin for being awarded a certificate for ‘Best Floor Speaker’. All of the children worked extremely hard to prepare and deliver their points and arguments and all of their work paid off. A huge congratulations to all who participated!

On Monday 21st March 2016 a selection of P7 athletes attended an Active School Athletics Competition for the South East area of Glasgow. This competition involved 12 children, each of whom took part in 6 athletics events and a relay race. The children participated in 60m hurdles, 60m sprint, 400m, shot putt, javelin and standing long jump where they were given the opportunity to secure an individual medal. It was here that Selin Turan secured a bronze medal in the shot putt event – well done Selin! In addition to individual medals, the results of each school team were collated and it was here that Shawlands’ pupils shone. They performed extremely well as a team, each securing high scores in every event. This led to the children receiving a silver medal for coming second (out of 21 schools) in the team event! As a result, the team has qualified for a Grand Final involving the top Glasgow schools. This final takes place at the Emirates on Wednesday 30th March 2016 so watch this space for an update!
