The baton will visit all the cluster primary schools such as Cairneyhill, Crossford, Saline, Blairhall and Mclean. QAHS hosts these events every year of the Commonwealth Games. We managed to get a quick photo of the QAHS team before they left the school. Outside the school all the flags of the countries the schools were representing were up. We watched the QAHS athletes leaving the school with the baton that will be taken round the schools in the relay.
We got a chance to interview Fiona who is an Active Schools Coordinator and Ashley who is a former student and volunteer, who told us, ‘In the actual Commonwealth Games there is a special message from the Queen, but unfortunately we cannot have this, so we have a note from the Rector instead which is almost as good’.
