Sport events at Laingholm Primary School
Laingholm Primary School provides a variety of sporting opportunities for children. The purpose of these events are varied – some events give children the opportunity to get in and participate, while other events are for those who excel in certain sports, so they can test themselves against children from other schools. The selection process, listed below, is followed but the final decision is with the sports coordinator.
Laingholm School’s Sports philosophy is to get as many children to experience as many events as is possible.
You don’t know what you like, unless you give it a go.
