HSD stages its 1st Festival of Sport!
22nd June 2023
Athletic action, fantastic fun and team spirit were all to the fore as the High School of Dundee held its first-ever Festival of Sport!
The whole school community came together at Mayfield yesterday to take part in a host of amazing activities, music, stalls, and the usual heat of Sports Day competition.
With the sun shining, pupils from L1-F6 had the chance to embrace traditional athletics events, as well as take part in additional sporting challenges and house contests like tug-of-war, rounders and team games.
They also seized the opportunity to try their collective hands at the likes of fencing, speed orienteering, a balance slackline, fieldcraft, frisbee golf, target football and navigating a bike track!
Musical entertainment, bouncy castles, and stalls selling items ranging from pupil-made sweet treats, to glitter tattoos, ice-cream, strawberries and crafts made it a real carnival atmosphere.
In addition, fundraising took place for the charity Dundee Dragons, who were also on hand for demonstrations of wheelchair sports.
A fantastic day of entertainment was wrapped up vibrantly with the Parents’ Association’s fantastic Colour Run - to help raise funds for redevelopment of the school's playground – during which the smiles, and the colours of what were previously white t-shirts, spoke for themselves!
A huge thank you to everyone who was part of the day and all those who helped make it happen!
