Football – Lochardil win the P6/7 Winter Cup 2019

Report from Tony Miller – Team Coach

Congratulations to the P6/7 team of boys who triumphed in the Winter Cup final against Kinmylies Warriors on Tuesday evening (19th March). The boys played fantastic football, working as a team and remaining composed in a high tempo match for the Cup. The game ended in a 7-0 victory to Lochardil with lots of stunning goals to celebrate.


What made it even more special was John Robertson and Scott Kellacher coming along to watch the game and present the Cup and medals. Fantastic to see the support from ICT who both commented on how impressed they were with the quality of the game.


A huge well done to all the boys that played in the final match and the preceding rounds of the tournament.

Gavin Thomson, Scott Mackay, Sam Thompson, Ross MacLeod, Sean Kavanagh, Rorie Soden, James Young, Toryn Eaglesham, Ellis Morrison, Michael Miller, Rowan Urquhart.

P6 – Visit from Mrs Knight

Primary 6 – Visit from Mrs Knight

We had a fantastic visit from Mrs Knight, from Scottish Water. She taught us all about her job. She taught us about the way in which water is transported to and from our homes, how water is purified and the ways in which we can help keep the process running smoothly. As we have been learning all about the water cycle in Primary 6, we found it all really interesting.

P6/7 – Maths Is Fun!

In Primary 6/7 we are always looking to find different ways to learn to keep things fun and exciting. This week we have already enjoyed making 3D shape models. We drew the nets of the shapes and wrote facts about each of the shapes before constructing our models.

We also enjoyed a sensory activity linked to multiplication. We had to search in the beads to find four numbers and arrange these to make a multiplication sum. Our partners checked our answers using a calculator.
