Cricket Scotland held 3 festivals in Perth this week with teams from RGC participating in each and achieving great success. On Monday our Girls team enjoyed the experience of playing in their first festival of this scale, with over 350 girls from schools all over Scotland taking part at North Inch Park. On Tuesday it was the turn of our S2-S3 boys team to play in the U15 Festival at Doo’cot Park. They played very well to reach the final against Merchiston and came 2nd place with 80 runs to Merchiston’s 100 runs. Junior School boys and girls from P5 and P6 travelled down to Doo’Cot Park for the Primary Festival on Wednesday. They had a very successful day, beating Bishopmill Primary School, James Gillespies Primary and Touch Primary to take them into the final against George Watson's College. GWC batted first and made 182 runs followed by RGC batting second with a score of 171 runs, taking 2nd place overall. Well done to all our teams this week.
These festivals marked the end of what has been a very successful season for our cricket teams both in terms of results on the pitch as well as the growing number of pupils taking an interest in the sport.
A team of 14 pupils from S1-S4 travelled to Stirling University on Friday to compete in the Scottish Schools Water Polo Championships. The players gave their best efforts and played extremely well against some very challenging competition. Our RGC team was delighted to take 3rd place.
Nursery Sports Day
The children from the RGC Nursery had great fun at their Sports Day on Friday with lots of friends and family coming along to cheer them in their races at Countesswells.
The annual Rose Bowl Netball Tournament took place on Sunday at Rubislaw. Our team of P7 girls played well and achieved a successful set of results in this round robin tournament format: 2 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss. They narrowly lost out to Ashley Road School on points difference for a place in the semi final.
