Virtual Events

Almost 3,000 Midlothian primary schools pupils enjoy return to interschool sport competition!

 

Last week saw the first event in the Midlothian Active Schools Virtual Events Calendar for 2020-21.

Active Schools events have moved onto a virtual platform since school sport competition ceased in its current format due to COVID-19.

In September/October Active Schools Midlothian would have run the Primary Schools Cross Country events at Vogrie Country Park. Instead, Midlothian primary schools were invited to join in the Virtual Cross Country event, based in their own playgrounds and competing safely in their class cohorts.

In their classes, pupils measured out a 100m course in their school playgrounds and then ran or walked as many laps as they could in an allocated time. Times were adjusted for different age groups and all pupils from P1 to P7 were encouraged to take part. Every lap by each pupil counted towards the class total which was submitted to the Active Schools leaderboard.

The results are...

The Active Schools team were delighted to see that 22 out of Midlothian’s 33 primary and ASN schools participated in this event! And 2,898 pupils in total took part running an amazing 4,468km altogether!!

The feedback from the participating schools has been fantastic, and the learning that took place across the curriculum was impressive, from maths and measuring to IT in mapping their laps!

Schools shared all their pictures and videos on social media so they could connect with other schools and see how each other were getting on.  These were posted on Twitter and shared through the Active Schools Twitter @Active_Mid.

Active Schools was delighted with the success of this event and will be launching the next Virtual Event shortly – watch this space!
