NURSERY pupils in the east end of Greenock enjoyed a podium finish at their annual end of term sports day.

Gibshill Children's Centre held the event in the community centre next door and it was well attended with around 80 youngsters taking part in the games.

The competitors were cheered on by some 160 adults throughout the course of the day.

As well as sports day favourites such as the 'egg and spoon' race, Greenock Morton Community Trust coach Paddy McAlees paid a visit for one final coaching session to allow the boys and girls to show what they had learned during sessions during the term.

Craig Scott, the nursery's depute head, said: "Sports day was very successful.

"We had around 80 children and 160 parents and carers attended. "All children were confidently able to participate in lots of different races, including obstacle course, running race, and 'egg and spoon' race.

"We were very lucky to have Paddy from Morton in the Community visit on the day to deliver a 'showcase of skills' from our Micro Morton block.

"The children were also presented with a medal for their efforts."

Sports day rounded off another busy session of events and activities at the nursery.

Craig said: "We would like to thank all of the children, staff, parents and carers, and Paddy for attending and for all of their help and support throughout the year."
