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.
The organiser, Stewart Laird, did a fantastic job at bringing such a mixture of sports to pupils at Gracemount High School, making connections between the school, pupils and sports clubs within and around the community.
