Extra Curricular Activities
Pupils from Primary 3 to 7 can come along to the training sessions, the dates are notified to parents in writing and are generally held on the school football field, on the ‘all-weather’ pitch. There is an annual five-a-side football competition in June when we play for the Burnett Cup, awarded by the Laird of Crathes.
Running Club takes place one lunchtime a week on the school playing field, and is run by parent helpers. Pupils from Primary 1 to 7 can come along to the club.
Crathes School Parent Council set up a swimming club for all the children at the school and their younger siblings who are in their pre-school year. The Club meets once a week during term time at Banchory Academy Pool. In addition, as Banchory Pool is very shallow, the club usually arranges several sessions each year at Aboyne Pool to give the children deep-water experience.
All the teaching and the running of the club is done on a voluntary basis and any parent who would like to offer their services and assist in the running of the club, should contact the school.
Quest Club is held once a week at lunch time for pupils who wish to take part. Pupils learn about Christianity through listening to Bible stories, singing songs, participating in discussions and generally having fun.
