FIFTY primary six and seven pupils from all nine schools in the Kirriemuir cluster signed up for the first ever Kirriemuir cluster archery festival staged at Airlie Primary School on Saturday.

Unfortunately, due to the poor weather, the event had to be rescheduled for the Sunday.

Not all of the original entrants were able to attend on the Sunday but pupils still turned out in good numbers to compete for a number of prizes.

Aside from the main competition the event had a number of fun mini-games, such as the ‘hunter’ station, where pupils shot six arrows at a specially designed smaller target.

Pupils were also involved in marking score cards during the competition – this aimed to introduce pupils to competitive archery in a fun and safe environment.

The competitive part of the festival was split into the following categories:- P6 girls, P6 boys, P7 girls and P7 boys. There was a good spread of medals between all schools.

In addition to the individual competition the top archer from each school had their scores added up throughout the day to compete for the cluster shield .

This was won by Lewis McClure from Northmuir Primary School (pictured above).
