Craigour Park Wins Big @ EPSAA Interscholastics

Craigour Park recently took part in the final EPSAA Interscholastics event to take place at Meadowbank Stadium. However, we didn’t just go to take part and managed to come back with two silver medals whilst making it through the qualifying rounds in numerous events.

A huge congratulations to all the children who represented the school so well on the day. A special mention must also go to Lizzie (P7A) who won silver in the cricket ball throw and Nathan C. (P7B) who earned a silver in the high jump.

Well done Team Craigour! (And a huge thanks to all of the adults who came along to help and support).
