SportsScotland Gold Award

In February we were presented with our SportsScotland Gold Award. This award recognises not only sporting success but also increased participation and work with our partners in the community.



On Friday 31st March, representatives from our Primary School Sports Committee and our team of gymnasts who whave qualified for the British Finals will be attending the Annandale Eskdale Sports Awards. This year we have been nominated for:

Team of the Year (for our gymnastics squad who went to Perth last year)

Large Schools Sports Initiative (for our work to achieve the SportsScotland Gold Award)

As I'm sure you will agree this has been another excellent term. However, all this success does bring with it a financial implication for the school. Pupils have to be kitted out appropriately, have the correct equipment for training and competition and there is also a huge cost implication for transportation. To this end we are looking for your support in an upcoming fundraiser by one of our parents. Please see below the letter from Mr Minto.

Annandale Way - Johnny Minto

On the 22nd of April 2017 I will be running the Annandale Way from the Devil's Beef Tub at Moffat to Newbie at Annan a distance of approx.44 miles. To coincide with this I have set up a crowdfunding page with justgiving.com to try and raise money for much needed equipment to aid the continued success of Moffat Academy's many talented young gymnasts as they now head to Stoke for the British School Gymnastics Finals. If anyone would like to donate they can do so at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/moffatacademygymnastics or by putting a donation in an envelope and handing it to the school office.

Yours sincerely

Johnny Minto
