The award was the culmination of many years of hard work to increase Sport, Physical Activity and PE throughout the school and presented at a special assembly last week, recognising the commitment to school sport and competition, leadership, celebrating sport, PE, training and partnership links with local clubs.

St Margaret’s have provided sports from P1-7 in various sports and activities, ranging from competitive teams to come and try clubs across the year.

“Being awarded Gold School Sport Award means so much to the school as we try our hardest to provide as many different opportunities as we can for our pupils. To be recognised for achieving excellence in Sport and Physical Education is phenomenal,” said Jen Cairns, the Active Schools Coordinator.
