KILMACOLM youngsters got the chance to showcase their skills as they tried out a range of different activities at a super sporting event. 

Pupils at Kilmacolm Primary were coached in rugby, curling, and archery at their recent sports day. 

Alongside the traditional sports day favourites including the sack and flat race, tug of war, and obstacle course, the youngsters enjoyed taster sessions in activities they may not have tried before. 

Parents and families were invited along to watch the pupils show what they had learned - and even got the chance to take part in a tug of war for adults.

Depute head teacher Lynn McPherson said the fantastic amount of activities offered would not have been possible without the support of Active Schools, and Greenock Wanderers. 

She said: "Sport is a big part of what we do at the school, and we have sporting activities at lunchtime and in our afterschool clubs. 

"Our sports day offered taster sessions and families were able to see the young people giving things a try and showing off their skills. 

"It's so important for the young people to get out and about and be active."

Active Schools co-ordinator Ross Stewart said: "This was a great chance for the young people to get a sense of different sports that they perhaps don't get the opportunity to play all the time. 

"It reinforced the important of sport in school, and it was great to see so many families coming along to see all the youngsters taking part."

Greenock Wanderers rugby development officer Clare Nicolson, assisted by Lachlan Carroll, gave pupils the chance to try rugby. 

Clare said: "It's really important to have rugby as part of the sports day today. 

"The more we can get the sport out there to children across Inverclyde, the better."
