I was so proud of Team Daviot today. All the pupils represented the school magnificently at the MacRobert Cup. For anyone who doesn’t know, most other schools only send their ‘best’ cross-country runners to the event (after trials). Our school is really lucky, because we can allow all eligible children to take part in events like these – which is a brilliant way to develop their confidence and resilience. Every child at Daviot is encouraged to believe in themselves and try their very best in everything they do. After speaking to Mrs MacPherson, Mrs Mackinnon and Aileen, our pupils certainly did that today. We had some stunning results – particularly from Calum and Evette – who came in an incredible 28th and 55th positions! But, even more impressively, every single child gave 100% and completed the race – a massive achievement! Like I said to the pupils before they left this morning, if they go with a smile, give their best, and come back with a smile – then they are all winners in my book! And that is exactly what they did. Well done, everyone!
