Indoor Rowing League

S1-3 are taking part in the Highland Schools Indoor Rowing League 2017 this term.   This is the first time the school has taken part in it and so far we have had some fantastic results for round 1.  The pupils all compete as individuals to try and cover the biggest distance possible in a set time.  Pupils are awarded  points for how well they do in their distance and the school is awarded points based on how many pupils participate.  They compete in 3 rounds in PE time between February and March in school and take part in a final 4th round in a festival format in a central location in Highland.  S1 each compete for 2 minutes, S2 for 3 minutes and S3 for 4 minutes.  Round 2 will be the week beginning Monday 6 March. Their Round 1 results are as follows:
