We asked some of the participants and some teachers who were helping how their experience was going and they all seemed to be having a great time.
We asked first-year pupil Angus Baxter about the experience, here’s what he had to say.
Anna, Lucy- “How are you enjoying today?”
Angus- “It’s been good so far, great weather for playing in.”
Anna, Lucy- “Are you looking forward to playing?”
Angus- “Yeah I am, I hope we win.”
We later asked basketball coach Callum, who was tallying all of the schools scores up, how his time here was.
Anna, Lucy- “Is there anything more that you would like to see from the primaries?”
Callum-“They’ve done really well, there’s nothing really that I have to ask of them.”
Anna, Lucy- “Is there anything that has impressed you?”
Callum- “Someone in first year was doing archery and got a bullseye on the first on the second shot.
There was also a girl in primary 7 from Cairneyhill called Maddie Gilroy who ran 6 races, and won them all.”
Anna, Lucy- “Wow, really?”
Callum also told us at the end that he would come back next year 100% but unfortunately, he can’t, and was telling us that we should start charging adults to come as it is a great event to be spectating, and helping with!
We asked Mr.Hannah, who was leading the archery. Archery seemed to have a lot of people,and would have been quite stressful for him to handle all the pupils, so we couldn’t talk to him for as long as we would have liked to.
Anna, Lucy- “what would you like to see more of from the primary 7s?”
Mr Hannah- “Hmm, that’s a good question. Probably more patience, organisation skills and a little more independence.”
Anna, Lucy-“ What has surprised you?”
Mr Hannah- “Probably the weather.”
We’ve seen and heard many opinions so far and they are all positive. Queen Anne has done a very good job of making a social, and sporty event.
