Brodick Primary and Early Years pupils enjoyed a day of fun in the sun at their annual school sports day which took place at the Ormidale Park in ideal conditions on a bright summer’s day.

The event attracted some good-natured competition with pupils cheering on their friends and family members from the sidelines while the parents did the same on the opposite side of the field.

Children enjoyed running races, sack and egg-and-spoon races, along with obstacle races, and other traditional favourites.

The adult races, as usual, resulted in many amusing moments with children cheering on their parents.

Race winners received stickers for their accomplishments and all participants received participation stickers.

The sports day afternoon was very popular with pupils who enjoyed the physicality of playing outdoors with their friends, the weather, and the excitement of doing something far removed from their regular classes.
