The P4 active games saw over 100 enthusiastic primary 4 pupils from across the Machars cluster joined together at Minnigaff Pavilion.

Pupils at the event got a chance to take part in a range of different sports including rugby, football, netball and athletics.

Councillor Tom McAughtrie said : “Club engagement and secondary senior pupil support played a key role in the success of the active games festival embedding the local schools in the heart of their local community.”

Thanks goes to the sport station leaders who were Jamie Muir, Rugby Development Officer, S.F.A coach Garry Mc Knight and Debbie Johnstone of Galloway Netball Club.

The Douglas Ewart High School supported the event with their senior pupils who kindly assisted at the four areas sharing their skills and knowledge at each station they were posted at. The focus of the festival was of fun and participation, which emerged on the day via the many smiles on the faces of those who took part.
