Santa’s Grotto Teeside Park

What makes Craigour Park unique? Many things. Certainly not having a Christmas themed running club in August and then setting ourselves the challenge of running to Santa’s Grotto in Sports Direct (other cut price sporting outlets are available) in Newcastle 120 miles away and then surpassing that and running to Santa’s Grotto in Sports Direct (other cut price sporting outlets are available) in Teeside park another 30 miles down the road. Lots of other schools do that, so i don’t know what makes us unique.

N.B. No Lonsdale tracksuits or Karrimor trainers were hurt in the making of this film.


Open afternoon and showcase today

This afternoon we’ve got some of our talented sporty kids showcasing Parkour, Gymnastics, dancing, judo, karate and football in Festival venue 207 (the gym hall) at 1:30 for P1 – P3 parents and carers and 2:15 for P4- P7. You’ll then be able to meet lots of the coaches who’ve been working with us this week and sign up for the clubs they run. see you there.

Cops and Robbers Running Club

Running club is back. This weeks theme, to celebrate the continued Police presence at school: Cops and Robbers. 22 kids(? we think), a couple of parents, 6 members of staff, a box of dressing up clothes from the nursery and a few robbers masks. What could possibly go wrong?

Next week is our active schools week. We’d like everyone to join running club for a week and see if it fits. We’ll just be running around the school. Please come and join in. And the theme? Christmas in August (because every mum and dad loves going up into the attic on a Thursday night in August to get down the Christmas Decorations). We shall see you there.
