After two weeks out in the USA it is time to head home. All good things must come to an end....! Goodbye and we are looking forward to welcoming you to Scotland and Edinburgh in the Spring.

Thank you so much to the host families and to St. Paul's School for such a fantastic two weeks on exchange in the USA! Lots of wonderful memories and new friends made!

After two amazing weeks out in exchange in the USA, it was time to say goodbye as Issy, Lulu, Seb and Matthew head home to Scotland. They have had some real life experiences, met new friends and enjoyed some wonderful hospitality from their host families as well as everybody at St Paul’s School. Here are the two boys being given their send off!


We look forward to hearing all about their adventures after half term.

The first half of term was brought to an end by another highly entertaining Cargilfield’s Got Talent show in Chapel. There were a number of terrific performances all introduced by our very own Ant and Dec and we even had our panel of judges to offer their words of wisdom!


The audience were very vocal in their support of all the acts and a big well done to everybody who was brave enough to stand up and perform. They all did very well indeed but there could only be one winner......we welcomed back last year’s champion, Louis, to announce the result and after much deliberation by the judges, Ollie and Jack were declared this year’s winners!

Today we celebrated the 40th Anniversary of the opening of the Pre-Prep.  We welcomed Mrs Jenny Sale, the first Head of Pre-Prep, along with several members of staff from the early days, some of the first pupils and parents and friends from through the years.  Tours of the new building were given by members of P3, supported by children from Form 8, and memories were shared along with much reminiscing.

The Pre-Prep of 2019 put on a show stopping performance which took us all back down Memory Lane to 1979.  Mrs Sale kindly gifted an oak tree to illustrate how the Pre-Prep is like an acorn which has grown into a large oak tree over the past 40 years.  There then followed a party lunch and the cutting of the cake and the singing of happy birthday.  The day rounded off with a family ceilidh in Chapel after which some tired, but happy children gathered their party bags and headed off for half term.

The Form 4s were very excited because it was Viking Day on Thursday! ‘Cathbad’ (or ‘Simon the Viking’), Ama and Ivor joined us bright and early to start off our Viking adventure for the day. They told an exciting story involving the Viking societal hierarchy, where the children dressed up. The classes split up into two groups to experience handling Viking objects, including jewellery and food. However, the highlight of the morning was exploring a Viking boat: using real oars to ‘steer’ the boat and go on a round the world adventure. It was a real Viking experience! At lunch, the children had to explain to Simon how to use a fork as he had only ever used his fingers before to eat food!

In the afternoon, the Form 4s had to put on some scary faces and fighting talk as they used the shields they created in Design to perform ‘shield wall training’ and pretend they were preparing for battle!

They finished the day with an exciting Trading Game. The children worked in groups and followed a special trading route to ensure their team had enough of each item. There were some great bartering skills and tactics! Much fun was had and the Vikings really did invade Cargilfield for the day.

A group of singers from the Chapel Choir and F6 Training Choir joined with choirs from Belhaven, Ardreck and Mowden Hall and, of course, our hosts the Chapel Choir at Glenalmond College on Sunday 13th October for the annual Glenalmond Choral Day. This year we were treated to two very contrasting pieces by Bob Chillcott: ‘Every Time I Feel the Spirit’ and ‘Be Thou my Vision’ as well as John Ireland’s inspiring ‘Jubilate’ which really made the most of the acoustics of the chapel at Glenalmond. In addition, we gave the first ever performance of a hymn written by Glenalmond’s founder, W.E. Gladstone, ‘Lead Thou my blindness by the hand’. As always, the service was preceded by a performance by the Glenalmond Pipes and Drums, including a great display of countermarching.  It was lovely to see old Cargundians Emma, Sandy and Scarlett singing in the choir, and Scarlett and Charlie piping in the band. Thank you to our hosts for a lovely day and well done to the choir for getting the music to such an enjoyable standard in a short space of time.

1stXV  63       Ardvreck  7

The final game of what has been a very successful first half of term saw the 1stXV take on our old friends and rivals in green from Crieff.  It was a glorious autumnal afternoon with bright sunshine albeit a little soft underfoot, and after another excellent week’s training, the boys were very keen to put in a performance to finish the first half of the season in style.  However, it must be said that our first half display was rather disappointing: too many balls were dropped and we rather snatched at things, displaying a little frustration that things would not quite go our way.  We scored three trees, conceding one right on the whistle, but we spoke frankly and honestly at half time about what was expected, how we wanted to play and the marker we wanted to lay down before the considerable challenges that we will face after half term.

We ran in 8 unanswered tries after the break as we cut loose, were far more clinical and played with real intensity.  It was good to watch and a real statement of intent, certainly! I said to them afterwards that when things do not quite go our way, at this age, it is really hard to break free of that and turn things around.  We might easily have scored three or four tries in the 2nd half and been happy with that; however, this group of boys have other ideas and I was hugely impressed with how they reacted, worked harder and put Ardvreck under pressure all the time.

No Seb today, but this allowed others to step up.  We made three changes at half time too, to shake things up a bit and it worked wonders! That is what is so impressive about this group of boys: competition for places is fierce, yet everyone understands that you are only as good as your last performance and this is what drives us on.  We have yet to put in the complete performance this term, but hopefully against the top opposition, we shall front up, stand tall and fight tooth and nail.  We have a team of real warriors, with an unbending competitive spirit and a strong beating heart; it is this which we shall need to call on when we return after half term when we face fixtures which will be true test of where we are as a team and how we shall be judged.

Well done, boys.  Unbeaten and playing well and developing some really good rugby habits as a team.  After half term, the real business end of the season begins, so rest up, and return excited for the challenge!

Good luck to those playing in the Ardvreck 7s on the final weekend of half term. It is the top 7s tournament at our age group, and I have high hopes that we can do the sevens double…..can we really?

The U13 girls travelled south to Sussex for the Qualifiers this week. After a flight to Gatwick, we picked up our bus and headed off to the hotel for a quick rest before heading out for supper in Eastbourne. The chocolate fountain was definitely a highlight of the evening, and we returned to the hotel for an early night ready for the big day.

IMG 2518

The day of the qualifiers started off with a constant drizzle and when we arrived at Bede’s, the rain became a little heavier. As the skies cleared, the tournament started, and the girls began a long day of hockey.

The matches were 8 minutes one way, so not a lot of time to score. Our first match was against Kings Royal. We had a good warm up in preparation and were raring to go. We started well and soon found ourselves 1-0 after a lovely ball through from Sophie which found Saphira who nimbly swept the ball in to the goal. Soon after, Izzy scored with a reverse strike. We relied on Flora in this match for her steady head and calm play, and the opposition struggled to get past her. A flurry of short corners followed with Saphira hitting the post, but time ran out and we finished 2-0 up.

Cargilfield 2 Kings Royal 0

We played Westhill Park next and this was a match, looking back, that we should have won. We started with the centre pass and drove the ball up high. We had a lot of pressure but were consistently penalised by some interesting umpiring. Izzy won a short corner but we were denied a goal. Saphira pressed the goal keeper hard in the dying seconds but she made a good save.

Cargilfield 0 Westhill Park 0

St Andrews Prep School were our next opponents and despite a couple of good games under our belts, we were caught on the back foot and conceded an early goal. The girls saw red and we pushed up with Saphira scoring the equaliser. We continued to press and Laura was unlucky not to score as they ball skimmed past her post. We continued to press hard however just couldn’t manage to get the important winning goal.

Cargilfield 1 St Andrews Prep 1

Our match v Feltonfleet was always going to be an important one and we needed a much deserved win. Caitlin was the hero and saved a good shot at goal, seconds in to the match. The play swung back to our attackers and Izzy won a short corner. An illegal saveon the line saw us awarded a penalty stroke and Sophie cooly slotted it away past the keeper. We showed better urgency in this game. Clemmie was really finding her confidence in this game and stepped up her game, working well with Emma.

Cargilfield 1 Feltonfleet 0

We had a bit of a wait until our next match so the girls had a good warm up to re focus. Whatever we did clearly worked as the girls played well. We won a short corner after 20 seconds and Sophie scored from a straight strike. Another goal quickly followed from Saphira who was fed a lovely hard ball through by Sophie. Izzy won another short corner and Sophie scored again. The play swung back to our defence but Izzy sprinted back and somehow got the ball away. Another goal from Sophie followed and after a bit of a chaotic few minutes we finished the match as winners.

Cargilfield 4 Kings Rochester 1

Our final group match was against Cumnor House and it was an extremely close and entertaining match. We piled on the pressure and won a short corner. Switching the ball to the other side, Izzy injected to Sophie and she scored with a hard straight strike. The play quickly swung back and we lost a short corner .Izzy ran well however the ball got past and hit off Emma’s stick in to our goal. We lost another short corner fairly quickly but thanks to some great saves from Caitlin, we kept the ball out.

Cargilfield 1 Cumnor House 1

Our results were enough for us to finish top of the group before the knockout matches started in the afternoon session.


The quarter final match was against HolmewoodHouse. The rain was battering down again at this point and the girls did well to battle on. Saphira started the scoring off and things were going to plan until the opposition’s pressure paid off and they slotted a goal in to the back of the net. They won A quick short corner and sadly scored again, just before half time.

The second half was riddled with injuries; Emma had a nasty blow to the chest but Izzy won the prize for the most fabulous egg on the head. Izzy tackled hard and the ball shot up and hit her with force on the forehead. In true Izzy style, she battled on and ironically played one of the best halves of the day. Perhaps the rage had set in!!?? Sophie equalised the match and it was looking like we were heading for a draw when in the last phase of play, Sophie scored from a short corner. As always, we found strength and width from Flora and she moved the ball well to our forwards. This was a particularly frustrating game with the umpiring decisions not going our way and a few questionable decisions being given to the opposition. Cuan and I both aged 10 years in this match and this was a very sweet win, considering how hard the girls had played after a very tricky game.

Cargilfield 3 Holmewood House 0


We were drawn against St Andrew’s in the semi’s, and knew we had to win the match to qualify. We started well and pressured their defence from early on. Clemmie played a lovely hard ball through to Flora who yet again, found great width and pushed the ball up high. We had 3 or 4 good shots at goal and It was great to see Flora in particular have the confidence to shoot hard. Despite Izzy winning a short corner in the dying seconds, we didn’t manage to score and we entered half time at 0-0, having been unlucky not to score.

St Andrew’s started the second half strongly and Caitlin made a great save, keeping us very much in the match. Izzy, with her egg growing by the minute, played well and a reverse strike from Sophie saw us edge ahead. Their goal keeper was particularly good, and she certainly made us work hard. The opposition were very complimentary of our play, and is was lovely to play against such a fair and humble team.

Cargilfield 1 St Andrew’s 0

With our place in the National Finals secured, we started the final against Cumnor with a few more relaxed faces. That said, we were keen to finish the job properly. We started on the attack and within less than a minute, we had won a short corner and a goal from Sophie soon followed. We lost possession briefly but the play swung back to our attackers, and it was great to see Laura, Izzy and Sophie link so well. Laura was a strong member of the team in this match and she really troubled the Cumnor girls - I wonder if her Dad had told her to play particularly well against this team, as an old rival school of his!? A last minute strike from Izzy narrowly missed and we entered half time 1-0 up.

The legs were looking understandably a little tired by this point and we lost a short corner early on. Strong defending from Emma and Clemmie saw off the opposition and yet again , the girls found Saphira who troubled their goal keeper. The play swung back to our defence in the last few minutes, and we all drew our breaths as they broke through however as always, Emma had her cool head on and swiftly cleared the ball away safely. The match finished 1-0 to us, and the dream team had a well deserved win, topping the tournament and claiming their gold medals.

A massive well done to all the girls; they displayed such a strong work ethic throughout the day and worked hard for each other. Despite the wet and soggy conditions, they stayed focused and I really admired their grit and determination to get the job done.

We couldn’t have got through the day without all the help and support from the parents, and a massive thank you for such a brilliant turn out. Your constant offers of dry clothes, food and general help really made a difference.

It was lovely to hear that back at Cargilfield, our progress was being updated game by game and we came back to a lovely whiteboard outside the Office of all our results!

Our U9 squad made the long journey up to Ardvreck for the final game before a well deserved October break. The boys who were playing in two mixed sides, warmed up well given the greasy conditions and our “Blues” made their way onto the field. This team played with good continuity and were keen to move the ball around, sharing the workload and were deserving winners in a tight game 7 tries to 6.

Our “Stripes” team perhaps with the advantage of the “Blues” wearing Ardvreck down in the first game played some scintillating rugby, moving the ball from width to width and showing good footwork to take command of the game. Two quick tries from Ardvreck were to be quickly countered with more good rugby, eventually scoring 9 tries to 2.

A brilliant first half of term from all the U9’s, we look forward to two tournaments in the second half of term and more improvement as the term goes on!

Our U9 squad made the long journey up to Ardvreck for the final game before a well deserved October break. The boys who were playing in two mixed sides, warmed up well given the greasy conditions and our “Blues” made their way onto the field. This team played with good continuity and were keen to move the ball around, sharing the workload and were deserving winners in a tight game 7 tries to 6.

Our “Stripes” team perhaps with the advantage of the “Blues” wearing Ardvreck down in the first game played some scintillating rugby, moving the ball from width to width and showing good footwork to take command of the game. Two quick tries from Ardvreck were to be quickly countered with more good rugby, eventually scoring 9 tries to 2.

A brilliant first half of term from all the U9’s, we look forward to two tournaments in the second half of term and more improvement as the term goes on!

The Under 9s were happy to play Ardvreck having just taken part in a mixed-up game previously. As Ardvreck were unable to bring two teams, our As and Bs combined to form a team of nine with rolling subs. Ardvreck brought 9 only. Whilst we lost the toss, we were still very quick to get the ball and Savannah was quite dominant, tackling Ardvreck girls and trying to pass the ball to her team mates. She passed to Bella who passed to Bonnie in midfield. Bonnie went forward strongly and scored a lovely goal.  We have been working hard on passing and then getting into a good space. This worked well in the first half with some nice passing play. Savannah went on to score two goals of her own.  Ardvreck answered with a goal when Agalya unfortunately fell over. They were able to play round and score. Bonnie ended the first half with another fine goal. Bella and Valentina worked very well in midfield, supplying balls up the field. Our defenders worked hard to clear the balls wide. At half time we swopped in the subs. We did not manage to keep our shape quite as well and seemed to be following the ball. It always works much better when we are spread out and avoiding ping pong hockey. However, we had several nice pieces of play and Ardvreck were unable to score again. Final score Cargilfield 4 Ardvreck 1

Today was a challenge. Two of our team were unable to play so we were grateful for Arya and Amenah as last minute substitutes. 

We had not played on a surface like the one at Clifton Hall before and it took us a long time to get to grips with the fact that the ball needed to be hit. It would not just glide along like it does on our astro at home. Clifton Hall capitalised on this and quickly the moved up to our goal end. There was a lot of action around the goal and I think perhaps we were all crowding around the ball rather than giving the defence room to move. We also didn’t make a very good job of using the wings. At the end of the first half, after quite a long struggle at our D and some great work from Iona in goal, Clifton Hall went one up.

We were quite tired after the first half which had been a struggle but we kept battling and things improved with Poppy making some massive hits forward and getting the ball up to Cara and Matilida at the front. Clifton Hall were excellent in goal and despite some really good work from our girls including a very narrow miss from Poppy, we failed to score. Iona came under huge pressure in the last 5 minutes and again battled on. However, the result was a well-deserved victory to Clifton Hall.

Cargilfield 0, Clifton Hall 3

Won 17-3

Having played in a magnificent match, which drew 12-12, last week against the same opposition, Cargilfield returned to the field of battle with reinforcements and threw down the gauntlet once more.

The contest started as an even fight but we found ourselves a player down quite quickly and had to soldier on with a numerical disadvantage. We scouted the opposition’s strengths and weakness within the first five minutes and then went for the jugular. It became apparent quite quickly that we were the stronger side, which allowed us to play our natural game. I was really pleased with how Cargilfield played as a unit and supported each other; each player that made a break had comrades supporting them on each side. In defence, we dug into our trenches and for the most part did not allow the opposition much room to manoeuvre in. Our tackling got better and better as the contest progressed.

Really well done, boys!

Cargilfield 7 – 0 Fettes

Cargilfield 2– Ardvreck 1

The Cargilfield B team played some good hockey against Fettes and scored some good goals.  There was a lot of strong play from our outfield who made some good passes up to the forwards to score the goals.   In the match against Ardvreck, we found ourselves 1 nil down at half time but we had had plenty of chances in that first match, we just couldn’t quite get the ball over the line.  Credit to the girls in the second half: they looked up and made good passes to one another and moved the ball well.  Lyla, Sophia and Isabella were especially strong at this and Tunrayo was pushed further forward to give us that impetus that we needed in midfield.  Bea scored a goal after a good pass from Isabella and the comeback was complete when Bea returned the favour to Isabella, who slotted home.  It was great to see everyone looking up and passing the ball rather than taking too many touches.  Players of the match were Amalia and Bea but well done to Tunrayo on another strong performance.  A great team effort!  With many of the players in this match still Under 10, the future is bright for the U11 team next year!

Cargilfield 4 – 0 Fettes

Cargilfield 1 – Ardvreck 4

We were missing a couple of key players through illness but this was a chance for some others to step up and test themselves against two good teams with some strong players.  First up we played Fettes and some of our players played in positions they weren’t used to but played well. Lucy played on the right and held her position well, finding lots of space.  Venetia linked up well through the middle with Anna who was playing centre forward.  Anna struck a good goal in the opening minutes to get us going.  We played well as a team and looked up when passing.  We scored 3 more good goals including a good rebound from Annika.  However, too often we left our defence exposed and it was up to Judith at the back to clear our lines when Fettes tried to break down the pitch.  Overall, it was great to see the players use the width of the pitch and we looked threatening by using the right side of the pitch more.

In the next match,  the girls played in the positions that they were used to playing in and sadly we lost that width that both Jessica and Lucy had in the first game.  Ardvreck passed the ball hard into space where they found team mates, whilst we were taking too many touches and trying to do things individually and trying to pass when it was too late.  Ardvreck found lots of space in the circle and managed to score quite simple goals with through balls.  After being 3 nil down at half time, we missed a great chance in the opening seconds of the second half to get an early goal and even though we had other chances and played some better hockey after the break, Ardvreck’s defence was solid and their tenacity to clear the ball was terrific.  

Well done to Ardvreck for playing such super passing hockey and moving the ball so well. They thoroughly deserved the win.  Bad luck to Cargilfield but one can learn a great deal from a defeat and the girls know areas that need work.

After a slightly sluggish warm up, the 2s took a little while to get into their game against Strathallan today. However, after some motivational words from captain Alannah, the girls switched on; showing some fantastic passing play and tight defence against an often dangerous-looking Strathallan side. We were 3-0 up going into half time. Hannah and Alannah communicated well from the back and Rosanna, Katinka and Charlotte working tirelessly in midfield. Up front, Emma, Rose and Bethany were constantly hassling the defence and in the second half scored a further two goals. Despite a few fantastic saves from Valentina, Strathallan pulled one back, leaving the final score 5-1. What was most pleasing about this game was not the score, but the way in which the girls responded to constructive criticism from each other, after half time. They are starting to notice where improvements or changes can be made without any prompting from coaches. Good work girls.

Yesterday morning some of the Nursery children created a coffee shop in the garden. They used their mark making skills to take orders and used their own personal experiences to support their role play. To further extend their experience they went to visit a real coffee shop that afternoon and enjoyed their very own babyccino!

It was a pleasure to welcome Mark Shopland, the Director of Hockey at Sedbergh School, to Cargilfield last Monday. He came up to give a workshop to the girls and it was great to learn some new ideas from him. It was good timing, as the girls were heading off down to Bede's School in Susses for their IAPS Qualifying tournament the next day! Many thanks for coming up to see us!

The Eco Committee met with Mr Taylor to discuss new points on the Cargilfield Eco Action Plan. Mr Collins had already looked at our targets and looked at ways the school could implement them. We discussed using eco friendly food covers in the kitchen, different ways of implementing recycling in classrooms and even the possibility of Cargilfield getting an electric car in the future. Children at Cargilfield feel very strongly about not eating food that contains palm oil so the ice cream that is served on a Friday will be changed soon to a palm oil free product. Compostable cups are being used now and an eco code is in the making too. The Eco Committee will present in Chapel and to Pre Prep soon about the exciting plans that are happening. It takes careful planning to make sure we choose the correct solution! What have you recycled today?

There is lots going on this week with matches on Wednesday, the U13 girls are heading south for their IAPS qualifiers and we finish for half term with the 40th anniversary celebrations of the opening of the Pre Prep and with Cargilfield’s Got Talent on Friday afternoon!

What a fantastic day the boarders enjoyed today with the Great Cargilfield Bake Off!

Having made some wonderful cakes in the morning, the teams then decorated them in the afternoon with some very imaginative designs, before we welcomed Fiona Pratt of Bibi's Bakery and former Cargilfield parent, to do the judging!

It was a very difficult decision, but the deserved winner was the spooky Halloween cake. Well done, boys!

The nursery children have been showing an interest in den building and playing in tents. The children have been discussing how to keep warm when camping outside and decided that they needed hot chocolate and marshmallows. So they went to Sainsbury’s to buy some. We had great fun choosing our items and paying for them independently!

As part of our learning on Ancient Egypt the children in P3H have been learning all about Ancient Egyptian life.  This week we have been learning about the houses that people lived in; what materials they used to make their houses, how they were able to keep them cool and the ways in which they stored the different things they needed such as grain and water.  Some fantastic houses were created, well done P3H!

It was a pleasure to visit Lawyers House near Comrie on Friday.  Lawers was the home of Cargilfield from 1939 to 1947 when the school evacuated up to Perthshire during WW2. We were shown round by the Estate Manager and we have begun to make plans to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the school's evacuation with a concert there in March 2020.  It promises to be a very special occasion as we remember an important moment in the school's history.

Form 6 went to Merchiston this morning to experience life in their science and technology departments. They had great fun making pin hole cameras amongst other things, and they also got to meet some animals of the scaly variety in the Biology Department!

As always, the Merchiston staff were extremely enthusiastic with our children and gave them a real flavour of the fantastic departments they have there. Our thanks also the senior boys who ran many of the workshops themselves during the morning and who were great ambassadors for the school.

1stXV  54   

St Mary’s, Melrose  12

Today was the first game of the season that we have had every boy fit and available for selection, and having made one or two changes to rotate people around, I was looking forward to see how we would play.  Last week at Belhaven, although we won the game very comfortably, we started poorly, and we talked in training during the week about starting well and being focused right from the start.  Today, we really came out of the blocks very quickly and the game was over as a contest after the first fifteen minutes.  We scored six unanswered tries in the first half and there were some terrific team tries with excellent off loading, good hands in the backs and we played at such a pace and were so clinical with the ball that St Mary’s were chasing shadows.  It was good to watch.  We left three or four tries out there as well, with one or two poor decisions made with the try line at our mercy, but we showed the rugby we are capable of playing today which bodes well for the challenges that lie ahead after half term.

To be fair to St Mary’s, they never gave up and they scored two tries in the 2nd half, as I took Jack off at the interval to see how others would react without his threatening presence in the midfield, and we took our foot off the pedal somewhat.  To be honest, our intensity dropped off quite a lot with the game already won, but we tried to play a little too much rugby without tying in the opposition and going through the phases.  Making the right decision whether to off load or to set the ruck is something we need to continue to focus on; small errors were never going to matter today, but in close games, these may be crucial.

The referee, Mr Pounder, was once again hugely impressed with our work at the breakdown, an area we dominated once again. Our jackling was outstanding and we counter rucked on numerous occasions as well as producing very quick ruck ball throughout the game.  If you win lots of ball, you are not going to lose many rugby matches!

So another convincing win.  Well played, boys.  Ardvreck next week then a well deserved half term. After that, challenges aplenty, and I cannot wait for us to be tested and see how we react!

Both A and B teams played on the Harper Gow which meant that I was able to see all the girls compete, a rare treat! The A team played first and Loretto were quick off the mark scoring a goal. I had initially disallowed it as the player was not in the D, however as the ball was in the D, the mistake was corrected and the goal allowed. This quick burst from Loretto spurred us into action however and Savannah was determined to fight back. She scored five goals mostly on her own merits, dribbling well with the ball and using her skills to get around players. I moved her to midfield in the second half and this allowed us to work on our passing and positioning, building on our team skills. I was very pleased to see some nice passing and creative play and two goals each from Bella and Emilia our captain.  Valentina also had several shots on goal but she needs to work on strengthening her shots as they were too soft. Bella had some shots on goal in the first half but the balls were off target.  Eliza and Gabriella worked well in defence although a little mistake at the end, a risky backwards pass towards our goal, helped Loretto to score their second goal. With Savannah scoring a further four goals, we won comfortably 13:2. 

The B team had a much tougher fight on their hands and the Loretto team looked very strong. They went comfortably ahead in the first half and whilst Beatrice and Aglaya worked very hard, Loretto scored 4 goals. We answered with one from Bonnie and a further one from Nadia. We were still in with a chance! In the second half we fought hard and Bonnie found a second wind, scoring two further goals. Millie crossed a lovely ball for Bonnie to slot in for the last goal and we had won! It was very much a team effort, and although we looked tired at times, we did try to pass to each other and Beatrice and Aglaya cleared very well and were not afraid to come out and tackle. Final score Cargilfield 5 Loretto 4.  Well done to both teams!

For many of the boys this was their first home match of the season and for the Under-10s in the group, the appeal of playing Under-11 rules had them chomping at the bit to get started.

After a nervy opening minute which saw Cargilfield lose possession almost immediately, the boys settled down and began to spread the ball wide, exploiting the space on offer there.  They moved the ball across the pitch very neatly, gradually building up momentum until they found the space to score.  The boys also tackled well, pinning St Mary’s back into their own half for much of the match.  Ewan was particularly good at rushing the ball carrier and making the early tackle.  Xander was able to win quite a lot of ball with his ‘jackling’ which provided further opportunities to score.  At half time five players were substituted and the new set of players continued to play an attacking, passing game with the quick feet of Kit and Tom testing the opposition.  Thabo was the outstanding tackler in the second half.

Well done to all the boys for the quality of their rugby and their team spirit.  A well-deserved 8-1 win.

For many of the boys this was their first home match of the season and for the Under-10s in the group, the appeal of playing Under-11 rules had them chomping at the bit to get started.

After a nervy opening minute which saw Cargilfield lose possession almost immediately, the boys settled down and began to spread the ball wide, exploiting the space on offer there.  They moved the ball across the pitch very neatly, gradually building up momentum until they found the space to score.  The boys also tackled well, pinning St Mary’s back into their own half for much of the match.  Ewan was particularly good at rushing the ball carrier and making the early tackle.  Xander was able to win quite a lot of ball with his ‘jackling’ which provided further opportunities to score.  At half time five players were substituted and the new set of players continued to play an attacking, passing game with the quick feet of Kit and Tom testing the opposition.  Thabo was the outstanding tackler in the second half.

Well done to all the boys for the quality of their rugby and their team spirit.  A well-deserved 8-1 win.

After winning the IAPS Qualifiers last week the girls were full of confidence going into the match. We played 4 quarters of 10 mins. Loretto pressed right from push back and scored a well-deserved goal. The girls were a little flustered and didn’t stick to their positions. We then gained a bit more possession of the ball and our confidence came back and we scored a couple of good goals. One thing we need to work on, before we go down south, is our passing of the ball. We need to look up and pass the ball to our team mates and this will help us become more ruthless against our opposition. Well done on another good victory.

Drew 12-12

On a rather sunny but windy Wednesday afternoon, Cargilfield took on Fettes on their home turf, which promised to be a great game of rugby.

The match was played on a rather unusually shaped pitch; a lot wider than it was long, which gave both teams ample room to manoeuvre and score lots of tries. And that is exactly what happened! I was pleased with how the boys played as a team; passing down the line, supporting each other in attack and popping up the ball well to each other. This allowed us to score some rather good tries against the opposition. Unfortunately, due to the width of the pitch and our lack of ‘shoulder boulder’ Fettes were equally as effective in attack. The area to work on for their next match will be to work on the confidence in going into the tackle with the shoulders rather than flailing arms.

Well done, boys!

Won 8-4

In perfect rugby conditions, we hosted a spirited and talented team of U11 rugby players up from Melrose. Our defence was rock solid against some super running rugby from St Mary’s and I was impressed with the technique and quality of tackles going in. We need to keep a better shape in defence, however, as we are at risk of leaving our flanks exposed. In attack we saw some terrific strong running, particularly from Chay, and I was impressed with the support running and passing. Well played, boys.

U11 B v Kilgraston and Ardvreck

Our first match was against Kilgraston. From the start we seemed pretty evenly matched. Both teams spent a lot of time running after the ball and neither really seemed to use the space on the pitch especially on the wings. This meant that when we had possession there was often no one to pass to. In the later part of the match there was a lot of action around our D forcing our defenders to work hard. As we had a large team today we were able to rotate our players when they got tired.
Final score Nil all
Our section match was against Ardvreck and we were immediately on the attack. Lyla was excellent in moving the ball up and Annika had 3 very good shots at goal. However, it was not our day and we failed to score. At the other end of the pitch Ardvreck were using the space to keep us on the run and always had a player placed to convert a pass into a goal.
Final score Ardvreck 2, Cargilfield 0

This was a game where we had lots of possession but it took us a while to score more than the one goal that Esme managed to squeeze in after the first minute.  Loretto defended well and we were guilty of not passing the ball around the defenders to make it easier to get the ball over the line.  However, in the second half, we played much better as a team and passed more confidently and assertively to each other.  

Isobel had had a few chances throughout the game and her determination to get on the scoresheet allowed her to scramble the ball over the line deep into the second half to make it 4-0.   Esme scored a couple more goals and richly deserved to be one of the players of the match; however, Jessica, who captained the team against her old school friends, ran around setting up many of the chances and Tunrayo proved to be very solid at the back and comfortable to receive the ball under pressure.  Eventually, the goals came thanks to our persistence to get the ball up the field quickly.  

An improved second half girls and it is lovely to watch your hockey coming on since the last time I coached you. Well done, girls!

Our U9 B’s were desperate to build on the positive results and progress they have made over the course of the term. Dealt an injury to Oliver in the build up due to treehouse shenanigans, morale and squad depth would be tested. No matter as Mack stepped up to the breach, no kilt, but bags of enthusiasm which clearly rubbed off on his team mates in the opening stages of the match.

Limited to touch rugby the boys played with an attacking flair and real accuracy, despite Typhoon Hagibis making a detour from the Japanese coast to the Scottish borders. With stout defence across the board and Senuka adopting the X-Factor running of Darcy Graham, the Cramond men had an enjoyable day in the borders running in 7 tries to St Mary’s 4.

Player of the match was Senuka, with an eye catching performance but this was a squad effort and shows the progress the boys have made over the past 6 weeks.

On a blustery day down at Melrose our U9’s were looking to build on an impressive performance last week against Belhaven. 

Thankfully the boys got the journey out of the legs with a flying start, scoring quickly off the kick off with some slick interplay and positive running lines. Scores were traded until the introduction of Theo who gave a spectacular wide pass to Jonah who gave the Cramond men a 4-1 lead in the closing stages of the first half. A late score by St Mary’s narrowed the score after some desperate defence from Harry and the one-man wrecking ball Wilfred.

After the break St Mary’s began to assert their authority on the game, supported by a raucous borders crowd. Dexter, Tristan and Monty all brought energy and a direct approach to proceedings with the latter squaring up the game in the closing minutes. Deep into extra time Wilfred streaked clear only to be denied by a fantastic try saving tackle, which meant a draw in fantastic game of rugby. 

Player of the match was Wilfred, with an incredible appetite for work and a tackle count that any back row forward in Japan would have been proud of!

On a blustery day down at Melrose our U9’s were looking to build on an impressive performance last week against Belhaven. 

Thankfully the boys got the journey out of the legs with a flying start, scoring quickly off the kick off with some slick interplay and positive running lines. Scores were traded until the introduction of Theo who gave a spectacular wide pass to Jonah who gave the Cramond men a 4-1 lead in the closing stages of the first half. A late score by St Mary’s narrowed the score after some desperate defence from Harry and the one-man wrecking ball Wilfred.

After the break St Mary’s began to assert their authority on the game, supported by a raucous borders crowd. Dexter, Tristan and Monty all brought energy and a direct approach to proceedings with the latter squaring up the game in the closing minutes. Deep into extra time Wilfred streaked clear only to be denied by a fantastic try saving tackle, which meant a draw in fantastic game of rugby.

1st Hockey v Loretto - Won 5-4

The 1st girls had a particularly tough match today against a feisty and well drilled Loretto team. Both teams played with great spirit and determination and there was very little to split them all game.

Loretto started the match and immediately pushed the ball up high. We struggled with their attacking formation and we left our defenders isolated and under pressure. A lovely goal from Loretto shook us but we did little to address our weaknesses and we soon found ourselves 2-0 down. Luckily this was enough to really rile the girls, and we showed some grit and sheer fire in our bellies; Sophie drove the ball through hard and found Saphira who put it away. The ball returned to the centre and Izzy cheekily won the ball straight away from the Loretto centre pass, and scored a lovely reverse goal. We all heaved a sigh of temporary relief, and headed in to half time with the score at 2-2, thanks to some good saves from Caitlin.

The second half was just as entertaining with the play swinging from end to end. We scored from our slip right option at the start of the second half, but as expected, Loretto punched straight back with an equaliser. A lapse in concentration in our defence let Loretto back in to the lead but we managed a score from Sophie as a result of another short corner. With the score at 4-4, the minutes were ticking away and both teams were working their socks off. With less than 3 minutes left, Sophie launched a ball through to Saphira who scored and the match finished 5-4 to us. We were lucky to win this game and hopefully this will serve as a good lesson to make sure we are switched on from the first whistle going forwards.

2nd Hockey v Loretto

It was a short trip to Loretto for the 2s today. It was clear that the Form 7s were back, as from the beginning we were far more cohesive than last Wednesday. The most significant improvement was in our defence, with fantastic pressing and marking. This was controlled well from the back by goalie Val, as well as defence Hannah and Issy. We dominated play in the first half and scored all 3 of our goals, 2 of which came from Katinka and one from Alannah. In the second half, our standards dropped, with individuals trying to dominate play too much and play was held in the centre. Despite more Loretto attacks, these were held off and the game finished 3-0 to Cargilfield.

3rd Hockey v Loretto - Lost 2-1

The 3rd girls had a fantastic game against Loretto today. The opposition started strongly and we were lucky to have Iona on top form today, saving many strikes at goal.

Josephine lead her team well and played some lovely hockey. She had some good strikes in the circle and was rewarded for her persevere by a good goal after 7 minutes. Matilda linked well with her midfielders and drove the ball wide, drawing the Loretto girls out of position. Just before half time Loretto equalised, despite some great defending from Charlotte and Bethany.

Emma started the second half off well and was always in a good position in the circle. Despite her best efforts, she didn’t find the back of the net however this was definitely not due to lack of trying! Georgia and Rose worked hard and pushed the ball in to the circle well, but the Loretto defence held strong and turned the play round. More saves from Iona followed but despite her best efforts, we conceded a goal.

This was a very even match played in great spirits and both sets of girls should be pleased with their performance today. Well done!

4th Hockey v Loretto

The 4s stepped up for their third game of the season today and it was clear that their hard work in training is paying off as they won 5-0 against Loretto. They worked well as a team and utilised the width of the pitch well. Ruby showed off some great skills and finishing to grab 3 goals and Lottie and Malayka pushed up from midfield to score one each. Loretto had a few dangerous breaks but Arya made some fantastic saves and captain Cicily controlled the defensive line well. Plenty to work on still but some real positives to take away too. Well done girls.

Won 12-2 (tries)

The boys played Fettes for the second time this term as an 8-a-side fixture. The team spirit was again very impressive and the players were happy to mix and match to give everyone a chance at positions that saw more of the ball.

Max was again captain and he played very well in the loose and when breaking through as first receiver. He was in the scrum with Torin and Robin and this made up a solid three.

The boys were a little too strong for Fettes and, apart from Robin, who was superb at putting down their stronger and faster boys, every boy scored at least one try. Monty made good use of the ball won by his forwards and tried to mix up the play.

Well done to James, Angus, Joshua and Adam for sensible passing of the ball and attempting to vary the moves and share the spoils.

The boys were once again a credit to the school and this made for a most enjoyable outing.

Well done.

Cargilfield 2nds travelled to Strathallan on a beautiful Autumn afternoon very much looking forward to an exciting game against Riley. Unfortunately, due to a slow start and an enormous opposition, things did not go well in the first half. Cargilfield struggled to escape from their own half and only some dogged defence from man of the match, Murray, stopped Riley reaching fifty points. Half time score, Riley 33 Cargilfield 0. After some stern words from coach Parker during the interval and one or two tactical changes from Riley, the second half began in a much more positive fashion with Kyan gathering in the ball from the kick off and charging towards the opposition try line. Although not able to get over the try line on this occasion Cargilfield surged forward with increased vigour and determination and as the half developed enjoyed a great deal of success. Finn, Ollie, Jaime, Seb all scored excellent tries with Finn able to convert 4 of the five tries, as Cargilfield clawed their way back in to the game and looked at one point as they may even snatch an unlikely victory. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts time ran out with Cargilfield once more on top. Final score Riley 40 Cargilfield 33. Well done to all for a fabulous second half fight back!!

introTextSo much to learn and enjoy!
image/cms/resources/img0480.jpg
imageAltCargilfield
leftColBody

Last week, I was lucky enough to take 26 Form 7 children on a 6 day trip to Normandie, France. The choice of this location is not random: t is close by several important places which can be linked to other subjects. 

Obviously the first objective of the trip is to get the children completely immersed in the language and also discover more about the French culture. It helps them build some confidence and widen their cultural knowledge. However, there is another purpose to this trip. It can give the children a first hand lesson on many other subjects such as Biology, Geography or History to name just a few. 

I know, History is quite obvious with the visits to the WW2 landing sites and memorials plus there is the tapestry of Bayeux (next year’s visit), the Mont St Michel and other fortified cities such as St Malo which I hope to show to some children in a future trip….and not just because there is a famous ice-cream shop there! 

Geography is also an obvious one, especially with the crossing of the bay of Mont Saint Michel and understanding its ecosystem and how quick sand works (and try jumping in it). There is also the visit to the goat cheese farm when we learn more about farming in the region. 

Biology is maybe not as obvious but we do learn a lot about goats and how their digestive system works and about when milk is produced following the reproductive season. There is also an element of chemistry as we found out the different processes to make cheese. 

Adding to all these the culinary discovery (and not just snails!!), Maths (being given a budget to buy their lunch in a market), PE (sports tournament) and you get a full class day outside the classroom!

Last week, I was lucky enough to take 26 Form 7 children on a 6 day trip to Normandie, France. The choice of this location is not random: t is close by several important places which can be linked to other subjects. 

Obviously the first objective of the trip is to get the children completely immersed in the language and also discover more about the French culture. It helps them build some confidence and widen their cultural knowledge. However, there is another purpose to this trip. It can give the children a first hand lesson on many other subjects such as Biology, Geography or History to name just a few. 

I know, History is quite obvious with the visits to the WW2 landing sites and memorials plus there is the tapestry of Bayeux (next year’s visit), the Mont St Michel and other fortified cities such as St Malo which I hope to show to some children in a future trip….and not just because there is a famous ice-cream shop there! 

Geography is also an obvious one, especially with the crossing of the bay of Mont Saint Michel and understanding its ecosystem and how quick sand works (and try jumping in it). There is also the visit to the goat cheese farm when we learn more about farming in the region. 

Biology is maybe not as obvious but we do learn a lot about goats and how their digestive system works and about when milk is produced following the reproductive season. There is also an element of chemistry as we found out the different processes to make cheese. 

Adding to all these the culinary discovery (and not just snails!!), Maths (being given a budget to buy their lunch in a market), PE (sports tournament) and you get a full class day outside the classroom!

At the weeknd, seven of Cargilfield's children entered the apprehensive and political world of the Model United Nations hosted by St George’s School.  Representing the United Kingdom, we had six delegates; Fergus (Human Rights Committee), Caitlin (Health Committee), Flora (Women's Rights Committee), Adley (EcoSoc Committee), Mungo (Security Committee) and Ned (Political Committee).  We even had our very own chair of the Human Right Committee, Sophie.  Other delegates came from a variety of schools, ranging from the north of Scotland to England.

The weekend involved Committee meetings where a variety of crises were discussed and with resolutions being sought.  Negotiations, co-operation and compromise were key ideas and our children certainly did themselves proud.

On Friday, some budding forensic scientists headed off to Strathallan School for a Crime Scene Investigation day. When we arrived, we discovered that a murder had taken place and that we would need to use the evidence collected by police to solve the crime. The pupils measured 'blood splatter' from different heights, investigated the resistance of components in mobile phones and used flame test to identify different chemicals, along with a number of other forensic tests. Many thanks to Strathallan for such an enjoyable and engaging day.

leftColBody

On Thursday 3rd October a group of F6 and F8 children enjoyed a trip to the Queen’s Hall to attend a concert given by the SCO with Pekka Kuuisto.  The highlight of the evening was the Scottish Premiere of an amazing piece by Swedish composer Ander Hillborg which had us all grinning from ear to ear. This piece had been specially written for Pekka Kuuisto, the violin soloist, and including some amazing sound effects from the orchestra which reminded us of flocks of geese and swarms of bees, as well as a marvellous jazzy section for double bass and solo violin. The violinists amongst us also enjoyed the opportunity to hear some Finnish fiddle tunes and compare them with the Scottish style of fiddle playing our Fiddle Group is more familiar with.

On Thursday 3rd October a group of F6 and F8 children enjoyed a trip to the Queen’s Hall to attend a concert given by the SCO with Pekka Kuuisto.  The highlight of the evening was the Scottish Premiere of an amazing piece by Swedish composer Ander Hillborg which had us all grinning from ear to ear. This piece had been specially written for Pekka Kuuisto, the violin soloist, and including some amazing sound effects from the orchestra which reminded us of flocks of geese and swarms of bees, as well as a marvellous jazzy section for double bass and solo violin. The violinists amongst us also enjoyed the opportunity to hear some Finnish fiddle tunes and compare them with the Scottish style of fiddle playing our Fiddle Group is more familiar with.

We played two very exciting games of touch against the two Belhaven teams who came to visit us on Wednesday.  It was a beautiful sunny and warm afternoon which was perfect for some full-flowing, passing rugby.  The boys have come on tremendously and were outstanding at offloading before they had been touch-tackled but also found the space to run in some terrific tries.  Belhaven fought back each time we scored which kept the score-line to just a single try in both matches but we always had that slight edge on our opponents who perhaps didn’t run forward enough with the ball in hand as we did.  Our shape in defence was good with our wide players staying out to cover the wingers.  We are beginning to look for one or two more passes from the restarts in order to get that ball out wide and into the space.  Overall, the boys were delighted to get another game against another school under their belts and were brilliant at carrying the Belhaven boys’ bags from the changing room to the school and escorting them up to our dining room where the usual appetizing match tea!

Today, P3 interviewed Mrs Sale who was the first teacher in the Pre Prep when it opened 40 years ago! The children enjoyed hearing about what life was like at Cargilfield in 1979 - lots of things were different, but many things remain the same. We look forward to the 40th Anniversary celebrations of the opening of the Pre Prep on Friday 18th October!

1stXV  46   Belhaven  7

A very comfortable victory on what was a gloriously sunny afternoon over in Dunbar – absolutely picture postcard weather and it is always nice to meet our friends from Belhaven!

A few changes this week: in came Jaimie and Seb for their first starts of the term, and Joshua moved in to the front row with Hugo away in France.  In addition, Edward was out due to a sore shoulder, so opportunities for others to step up.

I don't know why, but today was just one of those games, and we never quite had the accuracy or played with the intensity and fluency that we had against Fettes and Dollar, or at the sevens at the weekend.  It could have been the changes to the line up disrupted things, it could have been the fact that we had convincingly beaten Belhaven in the semi final on Sunday, or it could have been that we were playing with an old slippery size 3 ball…..who knows!

Anyway, we scored 7 tries, and to be fair, our second half performance was much more in keeping with how we performed in the first two games, getting the ball wide and exploiting the space and the speed of out outside backs; Glen, Fergus and Quin, and Ollie when he came on, enjoyed the space that quick ball provided and we scored some excellent team tries after the break.  The forwards were excellent throughout, with Mr Pounder, the referee, commenting about our prowess at the breakdown, be that jackling, or the quick ruck ball that we produced; it was good to see the forwards hitting rucks hard and the Belhaven boys were unable to cope with this aspect of our game.  It is something we are renowned for, and quick ball gives the backs space, which we eventually used to our advantage!

I am not going to mention the first half. We were asleep, we were not accurate, and definitely lacked that sharpness that we showed last week.  That said, it is a sign of a good side that they can have a poor half and then turn it around, so hats off to you all for being much more clinical, and lots of excellent team tries were run in.

Next week we welcome St Mary’s to Cargilfield, and then Ardvreck before we start half term.  Both of these games will give us a chance to focus on giving the ball a bit more width more often – although the holes we punched up the middle were very effective – so that our back three can exploit the space.  After half term, many challenges await….I cannot wait!  Well played though, boys: when we get it right, it really is good to watch.

On we go.

The sun was beaming on a glorious game of rugby which saw Cargilfield’s two teams, the Under 9 Wolves and Tigers, face a well-structured Merchiston side. After some enthusiastic handling drills, the boys were excited to get their first game underway! First out were the Wolves who hunted as a pack and rose to the occasion. Mack made some strong ball carries forward to get the game rolling. After some lively running, the wolves were first to pounce and made the first try theirs. Merchiston weren’t going to give up that easily. They took advantage of our defence not being spread out widely enough and got round us to score in the left corner. The Cargilfield Wolves (learning from their mistake) drove on in attack, successfully finding another try. The seconds were dying out when Merchiston came back with a late equaliser to achieve a 2-2 draw.

If that game wasn’t exciting enough, the Under 9 Tigers were snarling to get some points on the board against their well honed Merchiston opposition. After watching their friends in Blue, they realised that they had to play with a more expansive gameplan. They did this well with Wolfie showing something of Finn Russell’s quick decision making, spreading the ball out wide to the wingers. Rory’s dancing feet were instrumental to Cargifield’s success in the game, when he was able to step in between the defenders and create space out wide. He was a deserved winner of the man of the match award, alos showing real courage after getting a stamp  on his hand. This meant that the Cargilfield Tigers took the win, 3 tries to 1. 

With the games against Merchiston finished, it was time for the Wolves to face the Tigers in the final game! Both teams were raring to be the more dominant species  but the game ended as a 1-1 draw: honours even as there was little to separate the two sides with both playing some excellent rugby. I would like to thank the boys for their brilliant effort and thank Merchiston Castle School for being such great hosts.

The Under 10 boys travelled to Merchiston on Wednesday for a triangular fixture with the hosts and Compass School.

Our first match was against Merchiston and after only a minute, it was clear that it was going to be close.  Both teams tackled well and maintained good pressure on the opposition.  No rucks were allowed in this fixture so the boys could focus on their passing and running, and this resulting in a wonderful, flowing game with excellent passing and good use of the wingers.  The final score was a narrow, 5-4 win.  

In the second match, Compass passed the ball really well too and showed good awareness of space on the pitch.  The Cargilfield boys had some fantastic opportunities to get their noses in front but a series of unlucky knock-ons thwarted their attempts.  Again, the match was a close contest and ended in a 4-4 draw.

Won 7-4

The U11 squad enjoyed a competitive and spirited match against our friends in Dunbar today. There was some excellent rugby on show from both teams and it was great to see so many young boys out enjoying the sport. We had been talking about starting strongly and so we ran hard at the Belhaven defence from the first tap and pass – and promptly lost the ball! We defended well, though, and looked more comfortable in defence with players keeping their shape and stepping up together. Some excellent tackle technique on show particularly from Thomas, Charlie and Otis. In attack, we put a lot of pressure on with powerful runs from Chay, James, Alexander and Maximilian. Some committed defence from Belhaven kept us out a number of times, held up over the line and forcing a little knock on. The tries came eventually, though, and I was pleased to see the boys passing nicely and linking well. 

Well played boys.

On a beautiful, crisp and sunny afternoon on the astro, the U10 hockey were triumphant against Belhaven securing a very convincing win. Dominant throughout the match, Esme kicked off the scoring a few minutes in with a great goal, set up by passes from Natasha and Rowan. Another goal soon after from Jessica assisted by Lyla and Athena. With a break from the Belhaven team, the girls were great in defence especially Tunrayo and a save from Bea. The strong defence of Amalia and Tunrayo with Bea in goal enable a clean sheet to be kept. In the second half 4 further goals followed from Athena, 2 minutes in with a great individual effort. Two further goals followed one from a rebound where Jessica managed a strike to get it in and another from Esme. One more goal to make it six (own goal)! Well done girls, a great team effort and a super win. Everyone played their hearts out.

Won 6-1 and Drew 5-5

Cargilfield enjoyed a bright and rather warm afternoon of rugby playing against Belhaven. In both games, I was very pleased with the energy and passion that was shown from the boys. They ran well with the ball and passed well as a team, which allowed them to score plenty of tries in both matches. In the first match, we dominated possession and really put pressure on the opposition forcing them to concede errors and give us plenty of chances to attack. However, in the second match Cargilfield came up against stronger opposition and unfortunately just ran out of steam in the second half but it was great to see them hold on for the draw! An area to work on for the boys is as a team to use the width of the pitch and not all get sucked in to one area to try and be the player to score the try. A little more selflessness needed. On the whole, a great afternoon of rugby.

Well done, boys!

It was an absolutely glorious afternoon when we met Ardvreck. Our girls were keen to get going with Cicley as an enthusiastic captain. In the first half we showed some super defensive work with Lottie and Cicley at the back.  Emma and Ruby worked very hard to get the ball to the D but were under constant pressure from a hugely athletic Ardvreck team. Emma hit a super ball across the top of the D but there was no one from our team placed to turn it into a goal. 

In the second half we were much more evenly matched. Ardvreck who had done a lot of running in the first half were now tiring which gave us a few more opportunities. Wendy hit a super ball which shot into to the goal but unfortunately it was from outside the D and so no goal was scored. Malayka suddenly put on a burst of speed form the back and moved the ball up swiftly outwitting the opposition and allowed Cicley a shot at goal. It was wide! However, Ruby picked up the ball and scored! A well done to Annabella playing only for the second time as goalie who did well to stave off the Ardvreck attack.

Final score Ardvreck 3, Cargilfield 1

Well done Ardvreck for some super play. We really enjoyed our afternoon.

1st Hockey v Belhaven

The 1st girls had a bit of a sluggish game against Belhaven today. We dominated most of the match with a lot of activity in our attacking circles but lacked a bit of structure and composure when on the ball. We won a quite a few short corners and Sophie opened the scoring with a straight strike from the top of the D. Three further goals from Sophie in the first half saw us lead by 4-1 at half time. The second half started with a flurry of short corners but we somehow could not find the back of the goal.  Eventually one went in however perhaps our short corner options need a bit more work this week!  The Belhaven girls upped their game and broke through up the middle of the pitch and scored in the last minute which saw the match finish 5-2.

2nd Hockey v Belhaven

This Wednesday brought a trip down to Belhaven for the 2nd team girls. Possession was very even, with both teams getting good chances. Up front, Clara proved a threat and Katinka used some good skills in midfield to send balls through. Charlotte was a strong force in defence, however despite our best efforts, Belhaven got the final say with the score finishing 5-4 to them. Some positives to take away but plenty to work on for next week.

1st Hockey v Belhaven

The 1st girls had a bit of a sluggish game against Belhaven today. We dominated most of the match with a lot of activity in our attacking circles but lacked a bit of structure and composure when on the ball. We won a quite a few short corners and Sophie opened the scoring with a straight strike from the top of the D. Three further goals from Sophie in the first half saw us lead by 4-1 at half time. The second half started with a flurry of short corners but we somehow could not find the back of the goal.  Eventually one went in however perhaps our short corner options need a bit more work this week!  The Belhaven girls upped their game and broke through up the middle of the pitch and scored in the last minute which saw the match finish 5-2.

2nd Hockey v Belhaven

This Wednesday brought a trip down to Belhaven for the 2nd team girls. Possession was very even, with both teams getting good chances. Up front, Clara proved a threat and Katinka used some good skills in midfield to send balls through. Charlotte was a strong force in defence, however despite our best efforts, Belhaven got the final say with the score finishing 5-4 to them. Some positives to take away but plenty to work on for next week.

We were delighted to welcome the Pilton Youth and Children's Project to Chapel this morning to receive their cheque after last year's fund-raising by the school. They were one of the three charities chosen by Cargilfield to support last year.

Added to the £3500 raised by the Friends of Cargilfield, it means they received nearly £6500 from us which is a fantastic effort. It was great to hear how this this money will benefit youngsters within our local community in Edinburgh.

Constructive praise and encouragement vs ‘empty praise’.

We often use praise because it’s quick and easy. You can throw out a ‘good job!’ or a similar phrase without having to analyse the situation, and this is the problem with it. It’s overused and has lost it’s meaning in our world. Everyone is ‘great!’

On the other hand – encouragement takes a lot more thought and more words but, it helps children to see what they have done. Encouragement helps children want to do better for themselves, not just for pleasing adults.

When you say, “good job,” “beautiful painting,” or “great performance” to a child, the comments become “white noise,” or empty words with little meaning - eventually platitudes not even heard. Praising your child expansively not only devalues the praise, but also prevents him/her from actually knowing what doing a “good job” means.

Praising in glowing terms - especially if it comes after less-than-perfect behaviour or performance -can actually send a message that he or she doesn’t need to try harder to improve.

Children who don’t receive a ‘good job’ or ‘well done’ may come to feel they’re entitled to praise no matter what they do. They start to believe that they can coast along, assuming credit will come anyway. When it doesn’t, they will be unprepared to cope.

Furthermore, when you praise a child who is not doing as well as she could, she ultimately learns to believe she doesn’t have to do better to be accepted. She can coast or feel entitled, expecting that everything should be coming her way whether she strives for her best or not. 

You cheat the child when compliments are hollow.

Constructive praise (encouragement) with specifics and emphasis on performance encourages a child to strive and work harder. Encouragement is effective because it: a) allows you to select a characteristic or behaviour you want to develop or foster in a positive and constructive way, and b) lets you call attention to the process

Here are 6 tips on using words of encouragement for kids effectively.

  1. Praise sincerely and honestly. ...
  2. Be specific and descriptive. ...
  3. Praise effort and the process, not ability. ...
  4. Avoid controlling or conditional praise. ...
  5. Avoid comparison praise. ...
  6. Avoid easy-task praise or over-praise.

Music Scholars' visit the Scottish Chamber Orchestra to observe a rehearsal with Pekka Kuuisto

The Music Scholar’s group were very lucky to be invited to observe a rehearsal of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra at the Queen’s Hall on 1st October. 

We were pleased to meet not only the SCO cellist Eric de Wit, who took our String Workshop in January earlier this year, but also to meet the celebrated and charismatic violinist and conductor Pekka Kuuisto. Pekka showed us the Stradivarius violin which he currently has on loan. He told us that, after playing a priceless instrument like that, it is really hard to imagine going back to an ‘affordable’ instrument. 

The back of the instrument was made from the same plank of wood as the Stradivarius played by David Oistrakh; it has the same grain pattern, so you can tell they are ‘twins’. He also showed us the scratch marks on the back that show that in the past the instrument must have been played by someone wearing military epaulets! We listened to the orchestra rehearsing Sibelius 5th Symphony which really resonated in the wooden seating of the empty hall.

What a privilege, and many thanks to Pekka and Eric for spending time with our musicians and a big thank you to former Cargilfield parent, Lucinda Coulthard, for arranging the visit.

On Thursday both Primary One classes walked through the falling leaves to catch a double decker service bus to Lauriston Castle. The children explored the grounds of the castle for hours searching for different colours and shapes of leaves. They learned to identify a variety of types of trees and discovered the difference between safe and dangerous berries growing wild. They enjoyed splashing in the biggest puddle EVER and negotiated the stepping stones across the Japanese lake. They were cheerful, tireless, attentive, well-behaved and ultimately exhausted!

Some of the nursery children picked blackberries in the school grounds this morning. They asked if they could make a blackberry cake.....however, they only managed to find five blackberries!

They suggested that they should go to Tesco to buy enough for everyone. So that’s what we did, and learned how to use the self check out as well!

A big thank you to the staff at Tesco at Davidson Mains for being so helpful.
