Issue Number 04 | November 2019 World Baton Federation International Cup Secondary Schools Road Race Championships A massive congratulations to Jake Murray who recently competed in France at the World Baton Twirling Federation (WBTF) International Cup. The Secondary Schools Road Race Championships took place in Pittencrieff Park, Dunfermline on the 2nd October. Conditions were perfect for the four boys representing Marr College: Sam Rice (S2), Jamie Phillips, Jordan Phillips and Ross McNiven (S3). He competed in the Junior Men Level B category and managed to achieve gold medals for both baton and artistic twirl and a bronze medal for solo. A fantastic achievement – well done Jake! Sam was the first of the group to complete the course - a distance of 1.5 miles. S1 Induction At the start of term, we held a welcome assembly for our new S1 students to introduce them to Marr College. They then took part in a procession around the school building which allowed for parents, guardians and staff to cheer them on during their first morning at secondary school. We would like to issue a warm welcome to our S1s and hope they now feel settled in their new school! 3 He finished in 4th position with a time of 6min. 56s – a fantastic achievement. Jamie, Jordan and Ross all moved up an age group category this year and completed a distance of 2 miles. Jamie was the first Marr pupil to reach the finish line achieving 8th place with a brilliant time of 11min 48s. Well done to the boys who were a credit to the school and role models for younger pupils interested in running and athletics.
