Sportsfest at Gracemount High School

Standard

This week I visited Gracemount High School, for the third annual Sportsfest.

The variety of the sports that were available was fantastic. The list included: football; taekwondo; golf; athletics; gymnastics; off road biking; hand ball; basketball; cricket; and dance. Fernieside Football Club were a great addition to the day, as well as all the other coaches from various sports clubs in Edinburgh South. The kids that were involved were clearly having a great time too, it was excellent to see the pupils positively engaging with sport.
