Mr Finlayson said:
“We are absolutely delighted to be awarded The Sports Scotland Gold School Sport Award and to be the first Highland School to receive this award. This award recognises the hard work of staff members, parents and the wider community, who all help the school to deliver regular activities which support Health and Wellbeing and the involvement of pupils of all ages in different sports. Every pupil at Portree Primary School gets opportunities to develop their sporting skills and fitness through varied curricular and extra-curricular activities and we are indebted to the number of parents and community members who give freely of their time, to enable us to offer so many sporting opportunities to so many pupils. The ongoing dedication of all stakeholders also allows our children to compete successfully in many sporting events on Skye, Highland wide and also at national level and this in turn motivates them to follow pathways into sport with a number of local clubs. Receiving this award will hopefully encourage everyone to continue with the great work that currently takes place and I am sure that the pupils, staff, parent body and the wider community, will be proud of the school’s achievement.”
