Throughout the school year all children take part in a variety of different sports and learn many skills associated with them. Every summer we hold our annual Sports Day which incorporates both individual and team events, with pupils earning points for their ‘house’. A Sports Cup is awarded to the house with the most points at the end of the year, and we also award Junior & Senior Boys & Girls Sports Cups. House teams also compete for a Football and Netball Cup.
The school, assisted by Active Schools, organise many taster sessions of various sports with coaches coming to the school to deliver either one-off sessions, or a block held over several weeks. The pupils have enjoyed many of these which have included sports such as golf, judo, orienteering, rugby, sooyang-do, skipping and tennis.
Football & Netball Clubs
Craigievar School has after school football & netball clubs which are held weekly and are very popular with the pupils. These clubs are organised by parents and staff on behalf of the Parent Council and Active Schools. In the spring and summer the school teams play in various tournaments hosted by the other small schools in the area, and we host our own Football & Netball Tournament in May.
