Basketball action at the Crags Sports Centre.

Thanks also to  Boroughmuir Blaze for their support in providing fantastic basketball opportunities, both at school and at the Crags Sports Centre. This session, we run a P4-7 basketball club at Preston Street on a Monday afternoon, led by a visiting coach; and a P1-3 club at the Crags on a Thursday afternoon.  Some of our senior pupils also play in the ‘Junior NBA’ fixtures which take place on Friday afternoons.

P1-2 Football

We are introducing a P1-2 football section for the first time ever this year. Initially, this will run on Saturday mornings at the Meadows from 22nd September to 8th October – times tbc. We will then review the situation depending on how much interest there has been during the initial three weeks.

Parent volunteers

We are always looking for parents to help out with football at all age groups – either by holding training through the week or helping with games at the weekend.  If you would be interested in helping out, please contact simon.maclean@prestonstreet.edin.sch.uk to get in touch. .
