LAST Friday, Port William Primary School held a ‘sports day’ with a difference when inviting guests to talk to the pupils about their careers in sport.
The twenty guests invites were:
Kenny Kilkerr - PE teacher; Janine Spice - netball coach; Laura Paterson - physiotherapist; Hew Chalmers - member of the British Olympic Association; Keith Knox - football club manager; Kareen Niven - PE teacher; Senga Thomson - CPD co-ordinator; Hilary McTurk - fitness instructor; Robbie Garside - outdoor education specialist; Natalie Hannay - receptionist; Robbie Totten - football development officer; Beverley Mercer - facility department manager; Louise Kerr - sport reporter; Gail Munro - ice rink manager; Mike Wild - development officer; Jill Montgomery - swimming instructor; Alison Murray - sports development; Lorna Mitchell - gym manager; Jill Sloan - gym owner and Jamie Muir - rugby development officer.
The guests gave a overview of their job to the pupils, from Primary 1 through to primary 7, before engaging in a question and answer session.
They were all asked very searching questions on how they managed their time, planning and organisation and solving problems.
The event was part of the school’s sports careers project.
