Edinburgh Guarantee – Opportunities

Any pupils who would like to be entered for the Scottish Schools Indoor Athletics Championships in March or the Scottish Schools Cross Country in February should see Mr. Murray in the PE department before the holidays (closing date is just after we come back in January).
These events are pitched at a high standard and certainly not for beginners – you will need to have a note of your PB (personal best time/distance) for the event you want to enter as there are qualifying entry standards.
