introTextSearching for German bomber crash site!
leftColBody

On Wednesday afternoon, some of the children in Forms 6, 7 and 8 set out to Pentlands to climb Hare Hill and find the crashed German Junkers JU-88 plane from World War II. The story goes that on 24th March 1943, the plane, carrying crewmembers: Fritz Foerster, Horst Bluhm, Heinz Kristall, and Willi Euler, flew across the North Sea to bomb the Leith docks. When they couldn't find the docks due to dense fog, they turned around and crashed into the side of Hare Hill. After the crash, members of the local community gave the four men a burial, and in 1999, Kenneth Walker spent several years searching for wreckage and creating a small memorial cairn in memory of these men. If anyone would like to visit the crash site themselves, the 10 digit grid reference is: NT 16960 62142. It is also marked on the map in the photo gallery with a red dot.

introTextAn excellent team performance
leftColBody

Due to a cancellation of a rugby fixture, I had the immense pleasure of umpiring this terrific bunch of girls who thoroughly enjoyed their game of hockey against a visiting Loretto side. When the team in red approached the astro there were whispers of, “They’re massive!”

I replied, “Don’t judge a book by its cover..” followed by, “and it’s hockey you are playing, not netball…!”

The game was end to end with Cargilfield having the lion’s share of possession and the most chances. Lara and Emilia at the back made some last-ditch tackles but Lyla and Izzy up front were threatening. Had it not been for Loretto’s excellent defence on the line, we would have gone into the break with our noses well and truly in front. Instead, after a pulsating first half of hockey, it was 3-3 and the game was finely poised.

In the second half, Rowan continued to cover every blade of astro and half-time substitute Beth, impressed with her determination to get on the ball and make tackle after tackle. Anne finished off a terrific move after a run from Dulcie, who impressed all game, down the right-hand side and put in a great cross. The celebration from Anne said it all and her beaming smile was a delight to see. It was Cargilfield’s turn to have their goal peppered and Hattie and Nadia were the ones this time to keep their sticks down and clear the danger when it presented itself.

Thanks to 4 goals from Izzy, we won the game 8-4 but it was Lexie who was player of the match with her strong runs and good skill on the ball, finding her team mates and setting up many of our chances. Well done to all the girls; it was a real pleasure taking a team who played with smiles on their faces but still showed that grit and determination to succeed!

On Mondays, and for unfortunately only three sessions, we are learning the basics of special effects make-up. The club is busy with children learning how to use a bruise wheel on themselves but also on each other. They really enjoyed this part but the most fun is with making their own scarwax to create realistic cuts and scratches. This is a new and popular club which we hope would become a regular one for the children to enjoy in the future. Check out some of our pictures on social media, this a not-to-be missed club!

This week saw 14 children head of to Cammo estate to take part in some orienteering. We started by looking at 'setting the map' before heading off in smaller groups to find some of the checkpoints around the estate. Lots more navigational skills to learn over the next few weeks.

The importance of chapel

As you approach Cargilfield from Gamekeeper’s Road, the first building that you are likely to see is the chapel and, more than any other part of Cargilfield, it is at the heart of our life.

When it was first envisaged by the Headmaster, governors, teachers and parents of Cargilfield as a memorial to the 126 old boys who had lost their life in the Great War, the main entrance to the school was from Barnton Avenue and this might have seemed more discreetly tucked away. Nonetheless, the decision to link the chapel to the main school building, rather than as a separate entity, was inspired.

Our belief is that the chapel was first used in 1921. There were further improvements made within the first decade of its existence which have continued since – including the wonderful new curtains and other refurbishments that were given to us by the Friends of Cargilfield from their fund raising a few years ago.

Back in 1921, a Cargilfield curriculum would have looked rather different with a greater emphasis on Latin and Greek, Scripture and a more traditional approach to the study of English and Mathematics. The study of Science would have been more limited and PSHE unheard of. There were no girls, no nursery or pre prep and day pupils would have been a real exception.

At the end opposite the memorial, a reading room was built: the forerunner of our library and perhaps a place intended for quite reflection. The stage followed when the library was built in 1973 and so chapel increasingly became a place where plays were performed, reels danced, debates argued and other groups congregated.

Nonetheless, our chapel – as a place not just for plays, debates and Christmas Fairs but where the school gathers for worship, reflection and communal singing – remains at the heart of a Cargilfield education. The number of our families who will regularly attend their own local churches has inevitably declined in line with the rest of Scottish and British society. Perhaps, therefore, it is increasingly important that a school expose its children to the traditions of hymn singing, bible stories, prayer and to faith in general.

These are, of course, also the words, stories, and traditions that underpin the literature, art, music and general culture of the Western world but this is more than just teaching cultural references. Ideas that may no longer seem at the heart of daily life will often take on real significance at key moments in our lives: be they moments of joy such as weddings or the birth of children or moments of crisis such as illness or the deaths of those close to us. Experience tells me that these are the moments when our former pupils return to the well-established routines that perhaps started at school and now provide solace or reassurance.

We delight in the fact that some of our families practise faiths other than Christianity and we must be sensitive the fact that many families may have rejected faith entirely. Nonetheless, we are all aware of the magnificent memorial at the eastern end of our chapel and, as we come together with words and music, we also remember the names written there. In learning to speak up or sing and perform with confidence and skill in front of our peers, we develop skills that will serve us well in our lives but we also do honour to those that came before us (and sat on those same pews).

Likewise, our relationship with both Cramond Kirk and Holy Cross in Davidson’s Mains through our chapel services – something that wasn’t interrupted by building our own chapel (indeed, the second headmaster of Cargilfield was instrumental in the building of Holy Cross) helps Cargilfield to stay in touch with our local community.

When I am lucky enough to visit other schools and to join their students and teachers as they gather to sing or read aloud from the Bible or other important texts, I will often judge the character of a school by the spirit that they show or the atmosphere created on those occasions. When we are able to have you join us again in chapel (and we hope that some of you will, at least, be able to help us mark the 100th anniversary of chapel on Friday 12th November this year), I hope that this will also give you an idea of the character of Cargilfield.

Back in 1921, a Cargilfield curriculum would have looked rather different with a greater emphasis on Latin and Greek, Scripture and a more traditional approach to the study of English and Mathematics. The study of Science would have been more limited and PSHE unheard of. There were no girls, no nursery or pre prep and day pupils would have been a real exception.

At the end opposite the memorial, a reading room was built: the forerunner of our library and perhaps a place intended for quite reflection. The stage followed when the library was built in 1973 and so chapel increasingly became a place where plays were performed, reels danced, debates argued and other groups congregated.

Nonetheless, our chapel – as a place not just for plays, debates and Christmas Fairs but where the school gathers for worship, reflection and communal singing – remains at the heart of a Cargilfield education. The number of our families who will regularly attend their own local churches has inevitably declined in line with the rest of Scottish and British society. Perhaps, therefore, it is increasingly important that a school expose its children to the traditions of hymn singing, bible stories, prayer and to faith in general.

These are, of course, also the words, stories, and traditions that underpin the literature, art, music and general culture of the Western world but this is more than just teaching cultural references. Ideas that may no longer seem at the heart of daily life will often take on real significance at key moments in our lives: be they moments of joy such as weddings or the birth of children or moments of crisis such as illness or the deaths of those close to us. Experience tells me that these are the moments when our former pupils return to the well-established routines that perhaps started at school and now provide solace or reassurance.

We delight in the fact that some of our families practise faiths other than Christianity and we must be sensitive the fact that many families may have rejected faith entirely. Nonetheless, we are all aware of the magnificent memorial at the eastern end of our chapel and, as we come together with words and music, we also remember the names written there. In learning to speak up or sing and perform with confidence and skill in front of our peers, we develop skills that will serve us well in our lives but we also do honour to those that came before us (and sat on those same pews).

Likewise, our relationship with both Cramond Kirk and Holy Cross in Davidson’s Mains through our chapel services – something that wasn’t interrupted by building our own chapel (indeed, the second headmaster of Cargilfield was instrumental in the building of Holy Cross) helps Cargilfield to stay in touch with our local community.

When I am lucky enough to visit other schools and to join their students and teachers as they gather to sing or read aloud from the Bible or other important texts, I will often judge the character of a school by the spirit that they show or the atmosphere created on those occasions. When we are able to have you join us again in chapel (and we hope that some of you will, at least, be able to help us mark the 100th anniversary of chapel on Friday 12th November this year), I hope that this will also give you an idea of the character of Cargilfield.

The importance of chapel

As you approach Cargilfield from Gamekeeper’s Road, the first building that you are likely to see is the chapel and, more than any other part of Cargilfield, it is at the heart of our life.

When it was first envisaged by the Headmaster, governors, teachers and parents of Cargilfield as a memorial to the 126 old boys who had lost their life in the Great War, the main entrance to the school was from Barnton Avenue and this might have seemed more discreetly tucked away. Nonetheless, the decision to link the chapel to the main school building, rather than as a separate entity, was inspired.

Our belief is that the chapel was first used in 1921. There were further improvements made within the first decade of its existence which have continued since – including the wonderful new curtains and other refurbishments that were given to us by the Friends of Cargilfield from their fund raising a few years ago.

Back in 1921, a Cargilfield curriculum would have looked rather different with a greater emphasis on Latin and Greek, Scripture and a more traditional approach to the study of English and Mathematics. The study of Science would have been more limited and PSHE unheard of. There were no girls, no nursery or pre prep and day pupils would have been a real exception.

At the end opposite the memorial, a reading room was built: the forerunner of our library and perhaps a place intended for quite reflection. The stage followed when the library was built in 1973 and so chapel increasingly became a place where plays were performed, reels danced, debates argued and other groups congregated.

Nonetheless, our chapel – as a place not just for plays, debates and Christmas Fairs but where the school gathers for worship, reflection and communal singing – remains at the heart of a Cargilfield education. The number of our families who will regularly attend their own local churches has inevitably declined in line with the rest of Scottish and British society. Perhaps, therefore, it is increasingly important that a school expose its children to the traditions of hymn singing, bible stories, prayer and to faith in general.

These are, of course, also the words, stories, and traditions that underpin the literature, art, music and general culture of the Western world but this is more than just teaching cultural references. Ideas that may no longer seem at the heart of daily life will often take on real significance at key moments in our lives: be they moments of joy such as weddings or the birth of children or moments of crisis such as illness or the deaths of those close to us. Experience tells me that these are the moments when our former pupils return to the well-established routines that perhaps started at school and now provide solace or reassurance.

This weekend, Form 6 travelled up to Newtonmore, in the Cairngorms for their Form 6 camp. During the weekend, they took part in a number of adventurous activities including gorge walking, abseiling, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. In the evenings, the children played some wide games in the woods close to the centre. A thoroughly enjoyable (and tiring!) weekend for all.

This weekend, Form 6 travelled up to Newtonmore, in the Cairngorms for their Form 6 camp. During the weekend, they took part in a number of adventurous activities including gorge walking, abseiling, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. In the evenings, the children played some wide games in the woods close to the centre. A thoroughly enjoyable (and tiring!) weekend for all.

Welcome to our second mini concert of the term! It has been another busy week in the music department: our musical groups have been rehearsing and it has been lovely to have our Form 7 and 8 children singing in their choirs as we prepare for some Chapel Services after half term, fingers crossed! We have also had a film crew in the last few days and they have taken lots of footage of various musical activities which you will be able to see when it gets uploaded on to our website! Thanks, as always, to our team of talented music teachers and to all the children who have practised so hard. If you would like to perform in next week's concert, just get in touch with Dr Allsop.

1stXV beat Fettes

To lose our opening game of the season in the final minutes against Merchiston last week, our first game for 650 days, was no bad thing. We played some terrific rugby, had most of the possession but just lacked some fitness in the heat, and were not as clinical as perhaps we should have been. It was good to have things to work on, and the squad had worked really hard during the week to get our patterns of play right and be more ruthless when in the red zone. It is still early days, but the intensity of the training and the skill levels on show from this large squad, gives Mr Stephen and myself real selection issues for the 1st and 2nd teams which is just how it should be, with everyone pushing each other on to improve and not accepting second best. It has been good to see, I must say.

This week, we headed over to our friends at Fettes at long last and it was great to see so many former pupils coming to say hello, full of smiles and stories of what they have been up to! We were playing on their 1stXV pitch – a huge expanse – and with the sun shining, it was the perfect place to play our expansive game, dominating up front, recycling quickly and getting the ball quickly out in to the wide channels.

We took a little while to get going this week – in stark contrast to last week’s dynamic opening ten minutes – and we were guilty of trying to play too much rugby, looking for ambitious off loads, not going through the phases enough, and not using our fast and powerful rucking game enough. However, that did not last too long, and I was impressed at how we regrouped and put things right pretty quickly; once we hit our straps, Fettes found it very hard to get possession, and after holding on to the ball for long periods, the gaps in their defensive line inevitably opened up which meant we ran in a lot of well worked tries.

What pleased me the most was our decision making, playing what was in front of us and after the first ten minutes, we played some terrific rugby, recycling again and again, making good decisions and showing real discipline at the breakdown, jackling when we could, counter rucking really well and just looking after the ball. This was down to an outstanding display by the forwards, who never once relented, and I was pleased to see players looking for work on the shoulders of the inside backs, taking the ball up the middle relentlessly making ground and giving the scrum half front foot ball. It was great to watch. Last week, we passed the ball from every ruck (and we won a lot then too!), but today, we varied the options, attacking close to the ruck, using the blindside and keeping the Fettes defence guessing; as a result, we scored a lot of tries as the defence was not set and were unable to scramble, such was the speed of our rucking. Fettes tried to get the ball wide, but our own tackling and defence was excellent and it was good to keep a clean sheet: we communicated well in the backs and made our tackles and this bodes well for the challenges ahead.

Overall, it was a tremendous team performance and unlike last week when we played too much through the skipper in the midfield, today we mixed things up and the end result speaks for itself. Two games in, and two terrific performances, and we are looking forward to more hard work during the week as we build towards our game with Belhaven next Wednesday. More of the same, but we are always looking to improve and that says a lot from this group of boys. Very well played, chaps!

We were looking forward to our much-anticipated game against St Mary’s. We knew it was going to be tough but wanted to continue our un beaten start to the season. We started off really well putting St Marys under a lot of pressure. Our attacking presence paid off when we capitalised on a short corner, with Anna scoring a great goal. When we went 2-0 up, we got complacent and allowed St Marys back into the game. St Marys were a tough and feisty team and our girls hadn’t come up against an opposition like this yet. We had to dig deep if we were going to come away with a win. In the fourth quarter our girls showed great character and put the game to bed scoring three great goals and finishing just how we started, with a fantastic short corner by Venetia earing a good hard 4-1 win. Well, done girls.

introTextA last minute conversion draws the game!
leftColBody

On a blustery September afternoon our 2nd XV made the short trip over to Inverleith to play our neighbours Fettes. The Cramond men started fabulously, receiving a ball straight from the kick off and stringing together over 15 phases to move from our try line to theirs with Sylvan dotting down and converting his score, against his old side. Fettes clawed their way back into the game with a score midway through the half, which levelled the score. The Barnton bandits maintained their excellent control of the ball, through some fabulous handling from Kit, James and Archie, alongside some superb contact skills from George and Freddie, however a second score did not materialise. Slightly against the run of play, Fettes scored through an electric break from their outside centre which meant they led 12-7 going into the break.

After some encouragement from the legions of travelling former pupils, the 2nd XV again got into their straps in the early stages of the second half, but again couldn’t make the pressure pay with points. This allowed Fettes to extend their lead to 19-7 with 5 minutes to go. Someone needed to grab the game by the scruff of the neck and thankfully our Form 8 forwards began to erode the Fettes defences. An industrious carry from Thabo and some fabulous offloading from Xander, Zak and William led to Xander going over in the corner. Conversion missed, 7 points down and 2 mins to go on the clock, could the boys launch a come back and fight off the demons of last week…. Thankfully for the Cargilfield chaps they did and again through some wonderful phase play were knocking on the door of an unlikely come back. Kit jinked and weaved his way through and handed off to his protector in chief William to round off a fine move. With time running out, Sylvan stepped up and slotted a brilliant kick under pressure. With seconds on the clock Cargilfield were dangerously close to giving up the game to Fettes in back to back weeks, but thankfully a lung busting effort and superb jackal from Sylvan prevented a certain score for Fettes. Nineteen points apiece was a fair reflection of the game, brilliantly refereed and played in a great spirit. Well done boys!

Final Score: Fettes 19 – Cargilfield 19

POTM: Sylvan

Try Scorers: Sylvan, William, Xander x1

Cons: Sylvan x2

Nineteen points apiece was a fair reflection of the game, brilliantly refereed and played in a great spirit. Well done boys!

Final Score: Fettes 19 – Cargilfield 19

POTM: Sylvan

Try Scorers: Sylvan, William, Xander x1

Cons: Sylvan x2

Cargilfield 4 tries – Fettes 5 tries

What a super game of rugby between two athletic and determined under 11 rugby teams. Cargilfield made the better start, scoring first and, but for one or two handling errors, they might have extended their lead and made the game their own. Credit must go to Fettes who recovered, tackled bravely on their try line and kept the lead to 1-0 for a while.

As Fettes started to find some space wide, so one or two of their runners proved fast and evasive and they pulled level and then created a 2-1 lead by half-time and 4-1 soon after. Cargilfield were undaunted though and took advantage of some gaps in the Fettes defence, powering through with straight runs and bringing the game back to 4-3.

While Fettes added another try, it was left to Cargilfield to score the last try of the match, which involved a period of concerted pressure and good hands near to the Fettes try line.

It was a match that could have gone either way and these two teams will undoubtedly have another close game when they meet again. By then, Cargilfield may have added more stamina and athleticism out wide to their power, courage in the tackle and effective rucking.

leftColBody

The U9 girls thoroughly enjoyed their first away game today on a very windy but warm pitch at Hallhill Dunbar. They represented Cargilfield very well and had lots of fun playing with their friends from Fettes and Belhaven. Our top goal scorers were Livia, Alexandra, Alice and Florence but it was very much a team effort. We also defended well conceding only 3 goals in 8 matches. We won 7 out of 8 matches and were the overall winner of the triangular. Well done to all! Looking forward we need to ensure there are never more than2 girls on the ball at one time and we must learn to avoid the ball with our feet!

Cargilfield win

introTextA nine goal classic!
leftColBody

There was an unbelievable game of hockey in the sunshine at Cargilfield today.

It was an end to end first half with Savannah, in the early stages, having the first shot at goal saved by the St Mary’s keeper, only to pop up at the other end moments later and clear one off the line.

St Mary’s attacked down the right hand side and put in the crosses but we either cleared our lines or got lucky that they didn’t get a final touch. Having defended well, we allowed St Mary’s to swarm forward and have a 4 against 2 attack whilst the midfield stood and watched. St Mary’s were clinical on this occasion and went into the break one goal up.

Towards the end of the half however, we began to discover how making some wide runs, frees up some space in the middle and Beatrice, whose distribution all game was excellent, found Isla at the top of the D but we couldn’t convert the chances as St Mary’s defended their D well.

Unfortunately we started the second half very slowly and allowed St Mary’s to run in behind us and before we knew it, we were 5 nil down! We were a bit shell-shocked but if we don’t go with the forward runners and fail to mark closely, we are always going to be in trouble.

Savannah took the game by the scruff of the neck and charged forward to score and begin an unlikely comeback. Valentina and Nancy were positive in taking the ball forward and both looked to move the ball to the right and get it back to Savannah. The striker was on hand again and with 2 minutes to go, we got it back to 5-4. However, we ran out of steam and almost got the equaliser but for the St Mary’s defender making a terrific block and they hung on for the win.

It was a terrific match and St Mary’s were deserved winners, playing the better hockey but we can look back on this game and learn how we might do things differently next time.

Players of the match were Savannah for her work rate and goals and Beatrice for her intelligent passing from the back.

Final score 5-4 to St Mary’s.

The Under 11s welcomed Fettes to Cargilfield for some 8-a-side matches on Wednesday.

The B-teams started their match looking a little rusty but soon both sides found their feet and began to offload the ball in the tackle and look for space. Senuka proved to be Cargilfield’s most incisive runner, using his pace and step to exploit the gaps. Jamie, Harry, Mack and George used their strength well to produce useful direct runs before passing the ball on. Oliver was outstanding in defence, making numerous try-saving tackles, whilst Maxi, Charles and Sasha positioning themselves very usefully in attack, which always provided the ball carriers a good passing option. The match ebbed and flowed as Fettes also produced some powerful runs and the teams alternated their turns to score. Cargilfield was fortunate to edge the match by one try, winning 6-5; the teams were very well matched and it could have gone either way.

In the Under-11C match, the boys were up to the challenge too and demonstrated great team play, with excellent offloads and determination to get back and tackle. Leo was outstanding in defence, making tackle after tackle after tackle. In attack, Theo used his pace and balance to zig-zag his way through his opponents and proved very hard to stop. The two Alexanders were very good in both attack and defence and their support in both departments was crucial. As the match went on, both teams grew in their understanding and will now have a little more knowledge to carry with them into their next encounter. Fettes also produced some great attacking rugby but it was Cargilfield who came out 7-5 winners in the end.

Well done to all the boys.

U10 Girls Hockey vs St Mary’s (22.09.2021)

It was a tight first half, with St. Mary’s scoring the first goal in the first two minutes. Lottie CB, Rosanna and Lotte B felt the pressure in defence and worked hard to keep the ball out of the D from then on. Thalia, Olivia, Emily and Emilia’s teamwork allowed them to attack well. Cargilfield U10’s finished the first half with two goals from Olivia and another two from Emily. Two more goals from St. Mary’s meant the score at half time was 4-3.

It was a much stronger second half. Lucia, Cece and Scarlett were fantastic in defence. St. Mary’s had many shots at goal but the girls kept their sticks down and managed to pass out to the wings on multiple occasions, with only two goals conceded. A hat trick from Olivia in the second half and goals from Thalia and Lottie CB, meant the final score was 9-5.

Overall the girls worked really well as a team, calling for each other on the pitch. Well done girls!

U10 Girls Hockey vs St Mary’s (22.09.2021)

It was a tight first half, with St. Mary’s scoring the first goal in the first two minutes. Lottie CB, Rosanna and Lotte B felt the pressure in defence and worked hard to keep the ball out of the D from then on. Thalia, Olivia, Emily and Emilia’s teamwork allowed them to attack well. Cargilfield U10’s finished the first half with two goals from Olivia and another two from Emily. Two more goals from St. Mary’s meant the score at half time was 4-3.

It was a much stronger second half. Lucia, Cece and Scarlett were fantastic in defence. St. Mary’s had many shots at goal but the girls kept their sticks down and managed to pass out to the wings on multiple occasions, with only two goals conceded. A hat trick from Olivia in the second half and goals from Thalia and Lottie CB, meant the final score was 9-5.

Overall the girls worked really well as a team, calling for each other on the pitch. Well done girls!

introTextTwo super performances, boys!
leftColBody

The boys travelled to Fettes for their first match and the excitement was high.

Two mixed ability teams of 6 played two hard fought matches.

Team 1 consisting of mainly F5 boys managed a 9-7 victory with some good passing moves and selfless play. They might try to tighten up on their tackling as Fettes ran in quite a few solo tries unhindered. (A mention goes to Arthur with 5 tries.)

Team 2 of F4 boys were also winners with 11 tries to 9. They played some fluent rugby and were willing to try to find a pass rather than going it alone. There was lots of solid tackling and the boys in both teams should be proud of their efforts

Welcome to our first mini concert of the new school year! It has been lovely to see the children returning to school after the summer holidays so full of enthusiasm for their music, and the Music School has been a hive of activity during these first two weeks! It has also been good to restart our musical groups and, at long last, we have started singing once again which has been an absolute joy!

All the children have also enjoyed singing hymns again in Chapel and we have also begun to rehearse our new Chapel Choir, with children in Form 7 and 8 taking part; it has been such a long time since they last sang that only two members of the school have ever sung in the Chapel Choir, so we are starting from scratch, but the enthusiasm of all the children has been wonderful to see. We hope you enjoy this week's mini concert and please do get in touch with Dr Allsop if you would like to play in the next one.

leftColBody

Once again, the weather was on our side for another fantastic day of hockey. We arrived in Crieff looking to continue our winning start to the season. We played on a ¾ size pitch which was a fantastic learning curve for the girls who realised we need to use width. We were put under pressure straight away but our defence was solid and kept Ardvreck at bay. We had to change our strategy and play counter attacking hockey which was very successful with Venetia H scoring a cracker of a goal from the top of the D. After two quick goals we took control of the game and ended up scoring a further two goals coming away with a hard-fought win. All the girls played really well and are starting to really come together. The girls are already looking forward to our next match which I’m sure will be another tough game.

We played on a ¾ size pitch which was a fantastic learning curve for the girls who realised we need to use width. We were put under pressure straight away but our defence was solid and kept Ardvreck at bay. We had to change our strategy and play counter attacking hockey which was very successful with Venetia H scoring a cracker of a goal from the top of the D. After two quick goals we took control of the game and ended up scoring a further two goals coming away with a hard-fought win. All the girls played really well and are starting to really come together. The girls are already looking forward to our next match which I’m sure will be another tough game.

1stXV lost to Merchiston

650 days since our last outing, back on December 4th 2019, which was also against our old friends from Colinton! A certain symmetry to it all and it was so good to see the boys out on the pitch enjoying playing together once again against other schools. It was lovely to chat to opposition coaches from Merchiston, and renew old friendships again after so long not seeing each other……but enough of this romantic, teary eyed stuff…..there was an actual rugby match that took place this afternoon!

The first two weeks of term had seen this group of boys really rise to the occasion and gel together in to what will be, without doubt, a very strong, powerful and exciting side who play a very attractive style of rugby; indeed, the wingers today touched the ball more times than a prep school winger would normally do and this all bodes well for the challenges ahead.

To be honest, to lose by the one try in 12, considering it was our first game of the season and Merchiston’s third, does not matter; the fact that two of the team were unable to play due to waiting for results of PCR tests to come back just allowed others to step up and perform really impressively. At the end of the day, as our lead slowly disappeared in the final minutes, we had just run out of the steam and had nothing left in the tank – no shame in that at this early stage of the season, and the lessons we will have learned will allow us to be more clinical when we are in the ‘red zone’ and not spurn try scoring opportunities which we were guilty of a few times during what was a very dominant first half performance where we had most of the possession and territory but did not quite make it count as we should have. Still early days!

During that first half, we really did dominate up front, going through the phases again and again, looking after the ball, and then moving it wide to our strong runners in the backs. Merchiston found it very hard to defend, and we soon went three tries up playing some really positive rugby, making good decisions and this allowed us to stretch their defence and exploit the inevitable holes that appeared. As I said, we left two or three tries out there, giving away silly penalties just yards from the try line, but we shall be more clinical next time and learn from that as the game should have been put to bed at half time. As it was, we began to tire in the heat during the second half and perhaps became just a little too predictable, winning ruck after ruck and recycling the ball impressively, and moving the ball wide through the hands but lacking the variety of the first half, and this allowed Merchiston to drift and defend more easily as we tired: we needed to be more inventive, trying some of the moves we have worked on, the forwards needed to run off the shoulders of the fly half and inside centre, looking to carry the ball in the wider channels, but when you get tired, you stop thinking and just go from ruck to ruck! Also, perhaps the scrum half could have gone himself from the breakdown, an area we dominated throughout the game? These are all nit picking in what was a fine team performance and as Roddy Deans, the Merchiston Head of Rugby said afterwards, we were the better team and played the better rugby, but sometimes that is not enough, especially after 18 months without a game!

So many positives, so many learnings and so much to look forward to over the coming weeks, and with two further games with Merchiston to come, I know we shall look forward to meeting them again, this time with some rugby under our belts. Very well played, boys – it really is great to be back!

The under nine girls were beyond excited to be playing their first competitive match and what a lovely afternoon to meet our friends in green – Ardvreck. We fielded two mixed teams: the Cheetahs and the Lions. The Cheetahs played the first ten minutes of their game and then allowed the Lions to play. This meant that the girls did not have to wait too long to play and also had time to grab a drink of water.

The Cheetahs began well and had a greater share of the ball but we took a while to get around a strong Ardvreck defence. Isla M and Livia were able to complete some lovely attacking play with a goal each. We ended the first half 2 goals up. When we resumed for the second half, Ardvreck did look more challenging but Helena and Alexandra cleared well and Glory worked hard also in her first match. Alexandra and Isla S-A had some good runs also. It was Isla and Livia who scored the next two goals with Livia executing a superb turn before slotting the ball into the net. Well done the Cheetahs, winning 4 goals to nil.

The Lions also had a very exciting match. Alice played very well as striker scoring 2 goals. Florence was strong on the wing and scored 4 goals. Clara and Jemima also scored giving a fine total of 8 goals. Praise had swopped with Alice and played an important role in Jemina’s goal. The Lions match was a little choppy at times and we will ned to work hard on spreading out and playing for each other. However, it was a very good team effort overall, including some sterling work from Beatrice in defence. I was very encouraged with the effort from all of our girls. They tried very hard to play their best hockey. Well done to all of them!

Final score

Cargilfield Cheetahs 4 Ardvreck 0

Cargilfield Lions 8 Ardvreck 0

The U11 boys enjoyed a competitive and energetic game of rugby against our pals from Merchiston this afternoon. We divided the afternoon into 4 quarters so we could coach the boys as we went, which allowed lots of feedback and swapping around of players.

There were lots of skills on show and I was particularly impressed with the offloading out of the tackle. Everybody played well when they had the chance, with all boys making a great contribution to the final score of 13 tries to 12 in our favour. A few missed tackles and we need to improve our overall shape but, most importantly, everyone seemed to be having fun. Well played, boys.

U11A Hockey vs Ardvreck W 10-1

The A team scored lots of goals in what wasn’t the slickest team performance but we learned lots more about how to create more opportunities by moving off the ball and picking up space on the pitch. Most of the goals came from Miranda and Savannah who linked up well with one another but others contributed to the scoresheet once we broke the deadlock after Ardvreck’s goalkeeper made some great short-range saves.

Beatrice was once again a force to be reckoned with at the back with her no-nonsense defending and her distribution being particularly strong. Isla C grew into the game as the minutes ticked by and was unlucky not to score or even set a goal up when her fierce shot flew across the goal. Valentina’s strike from the edge of the circle was the pick of the goals and this was lovely to watch given we had been practising our shooting from distance in the buildup to the match.

Next steps, girls, are to spread out, make good leads with better communication and link up with some more accurate passing.

U11B Hockey vs Ardvreck W 5-1

The sun shone on the Under 11s this afternoon and they seemed to raise their game accordingly. Most impressive was the teamwork and a real desire to pass the ball and involve their team-mates in each attack. Athena and Nancy dominated the middle of the field and Thalia became increasingly influential as the game went on. Olivia was the top scorer but the whole team can be proud of the way that they showed more positional discipline and responded to coaching.

The Headmaster was enjoying himself so much that he failed to take any photos: he will aim to do better next time and offers his apologies.

U11C Hockey vs Ardvreck W 2-0

Well done to the Under 11C team who had to wait a little while for their match and then burst on to the pitch with real endeavor and determination. Well done to Clara and Lotte B for their positional discipline. Rosanna was tireless across the field but the decisive factor was probably Lotte C-B whose determination up front led to both goals (which she scored). Most improved throughout the game was Shriya whose tackling and distribution saw considerable progress. A super team performance on a lovely afternoon.

introTextA terrific first game of the season
leftColBody

On a gorgeous September afternoon our 2nd XV started their campaign at Merchiston. After a promising warm up, the boys were playing up-hill in the first half. The Cramond men started nicely after a mere 650 days without competitive rugby, William made up for lost time with some abrasive carries resulting in an early score for Archie. Same combination, same result occurred a few minutes later following some superb interplay from James, Harry and Zain which led to a second for Archie. With moments left in the first half, Kit scored an opportunistic try and meant a 21-0 lead for the 2nd XV at the break.

For Merchiston this will probably go down as their Istanbul moment… It truly was a game of two halves (excuse the pun) and Merchiston began to make inroads into our defensive line, shifting the ball nicely to the wing. With time up, the Cramond men had given everything and were 26-21 up and in control of the ball. Seconds later, Merchiston had broken free and scored a fabulous match winning try to steal the game at the death. A fantastic match, fabulously refereed, between two very good sides and we look forward to the return fixture later in the term. A great team effort and plenty to be very encouraged about.

To help all of the new P1 children settle into Cargilfield we held a Teddy Bears Picnic in Week 2. They all brought a beloved teddy into school and took care of it throughout the day. The teddies had a tour of the school then we picked up our picnics from the kitchen and looked for a good spot for a picnic. The teddies decided they were not keen to sit in the rain, so we put our blankets down in the cow shed and feasted there. Our visitors were extremely well behaved, polite and even helped to tidy up afterwards!

We have been using our magnifying glasses and bug observation baskets to look at the minibeasts we have found. Our teachers have been helping us to look up information about each of the creatures we have found using the bug books we have in the wildlife garden shed.

introTextA super first game of the season!
leftColBody

It was a fantasist afternoon in the sunshine for our U10s first hockey match of the year. The girls demonstrated some excellent hockey skills and showed great sportsmanship throughout. Good communication and teamwork led to a 9-0 win against our opposition Kilgraston, with some super goals particularly from Lottie and Thalia. Athena and Emily got stuck in dribbling the ball comfortably around the pitch and Scarlett and Olivia made some great tackles in defence keeping the ball out of our goal. The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was wonderful to see them back on the pitch and putting all of their hard work and training into practice.

It was a fantasist afternoon in the sunshine for our U10s first hockey match of the year. The girls demonstrated some excellent hockey skills and showed great sportsmanship throughout. Good communication and teamwork led to a 9-0 win against our opposition Kilgraston, with some super goals particularly from Lottie and Thalia. Athena and Emily got stuck in dribbling the ball comfortably around the pitch and Scarlett and Olivia made some great tackles in defence keeping the ball out of our goal. The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was wonderful to see them back on the pitch and putting all of their hard work and training into practice.

95DD8517 FE3F 417A 8E54 F36A31E08BF1

We mixed up the Form 6 & 7 girls to form two teams to play the visiting Kilgraston A team. This was the first hockey match for the girls against another school for just under two years and yet despite that, they played some nice hockey and looked very assured – particularly in defence, where they didn’t allow Kilgraston many opportunities to attack. There were some good individual skills on show and when we began to link up with one another, particularly by getting the ball down the right hand side, it created space and we looked much more like a formidable team.

Top play at the back came from Beatrice P who always stood strong and at one point made a terrific pass out to Valentina S on the right wing. Savannah W and Miranda R were buzzing around in the midfield for their teams and Shriyaa, in her first hockey match, came off the bench in both games to put in a solid performance in defence.

However, the player of the day was Isla G who, having not had much action in the Cargilfield goal, went to play for Kilgraston who didn’t have a keeper and put in some excellent saves to prevent her friends scoring any goals in the final game! Well done to all the players for sticking at it in what were very hot conditions!

Let’s keep working hard in training to improve, Cargilfield girls!

What a lovely day to have for the start of the season. The girls were so excited to be able to have matches and were itching to get onto that hockey pitch. We always like to start off with a bang and the girls did just that. We came out with a high press, winning the ball in dangerous areas and capitalising on mistakes. Our strikers were ruthless in front of goal hitting the back of the net regularly. It was a hot day so we rotated our team constantly, but even when the girls played in a position that they aren’t used to they adapted quickly. It was a great team performance by the girls and was fantastic to start the season with a win. Well done girls.

introTextIt is good for the soul!

We need poetry. We really do. Reading poetry promotes literacy and fosters emotional resilience; it can cross boundaries that little else can.  I well remember the first time I had to learn a poem by heart at Prep School aged 9: the joy of spending time browsing through so many dog eared and well thumbed anthologies looking for one which resonated with me…..in the end, I chose a Spike Milligan classic ‘Silly Old Baboon’ and remember the laughter from my audience as I ran around the room holding my bottom as if it was on fire at the end of the poem! My nervousness was soon replaced with a real sense of joy and achievement in that I had entertained my friends (and my teacher!) and realised that I could do it, and that all the hard work learning the poem had been worth it. Indeed, once you learn a poem by heart, you never forget it, and I can still remember it today……’There was a baboon, who one afternoon, said I think I will fly to the sun, so with great palms strapped to his arms, he started his take off run…..’

Here are a few reasons why we need poetry in our schools, and thankfully poetry, both writing and performance, remains alive and well at Cargilfield.

Reason 1: Poetry helps us know each other and build community. It can allow children to paint pictures of their lives, using metaphor, imagery and symbolic language to describe painful experiences, or parts of themselves that they're not ready to share. Poetry allows children to put language to use-to make it serve a deep internal purpose, to break rules along the way (grammar, punctuation) and to find a voice, representation, community perhaps.

Reason 2: When read aloud, poetry is rhythm and music and sounds and beats. Young children -- babies and pre schoolers included -- may not understand all the words or meaning, but they'll feel the rhythms, get curious about what the sounds mean and perhaps want to create their own. Contrary to popular belief amongst children, boys get really into poetry when brought in through rhythm and rhyme. It's the most kinesthetic of all literature, it's physical and full-bodied which activates your heart and soul and sometimes bypasses the traps of our minds and the outcome is that poetry moves us. Boys, too.

Reason 3: Poetry opens venues for speaking and listening. Think poetry recitals which a number of our year groups at school take part in, or the series of presentations that children in Forms 7 and 5 perform. Shared in this way, poetry brings audience, authentic audience, which can motivate reluctant writers.

Reason 4: Poetry builds resilience in children and adults; it fosters Social and Emotional Learning. A well-crafted phrase or two in a poem can help us see an experience in an entirely new way. We can gain insight that had evaded us many times, that gives us new understanding and strength.

WB Yeats said this about poetry: "It is blood, imagination, intellect running together...It bids us to touch and taste and hear and see the world, and shrink from all that is of the brain only." Our schools are places of too much "brain only;" we must find ways to surface other ways of being, other modes of learning. And we must find ways to talk about the difficult and unexplainable things in life -- death and suffering and even profound joy and transformation. Poetry can gives us all of this.

"...When people say that poetry is a luxury, or an option, or for the educated middle classes, or that it shouldn't be read in school because it is irrelevant, or any of the strange and stupid things that are said about poetry and its place in our lives, I suspect that the people doing the saying have had things pretty easy. A tough life needs a tough language - and that is what poetry is. That is what literature offers -- a language powerful enough to say how it is. It isn't a hiding place. It is a finding place."

A final suggestion about bringing poetry into your lives: don't analyse it, don't ask others to analyse it. Don't deconstruct it or try to make meaning of it. Find the poems that wake you up, that make you feel as if you've submerged yourself in a mineral hot spring or an ice bath; find the poems that make you feel irrational joy or sadness or delight. Find the poems that make you want to roll around in them or paint their colours all over your bedroom ceiling. Those are the poems you want to play with -- forget the ones that don't make sense. Find those poems that communicate with the deepest parts of your being and welcome them in.

Above all, read poems and enjoy reading them!

Right, back to Spike Milligan and ‘Silly Old Baboon’……!

What a fabulous first boarding weekend of the new school year we had, our first since March 2020! Traditionally, we have our leadership weekend for Form 8 at the start of the academic year, and it was lovely to welcome all our final year children in to school for two days of leadership and team building exercises. What fun it was to welcome everybody back and it was great to see the children working so positively together over the two days!

leftColBody

Zoe, who moved on to Kings' Canterbury after Cargilfield is now in Plymouth doing medicine), and is currently cycling from Lands End to John O Groats (nearly 400 miles in) with a group of 10 selected from the University Royal Naval Units (URNU) around the country. She is a member of the Devon University Royal Naval Unit. They are raising money to support the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity. I wonder if you would be kind enough to publicise the event on the Cargilfield social media as she would very much like to raise as much as possible for such a great effort! Here is the link to the just giving page which gives more details about the event & offers the opportunity to donate.

Our Chapel was built exactly 100 years ago as a memorial to the 126 former pupils killed in World War 1. It has been 530 days since we were last allowed to sing together in our Chapel but this morning we finally sang again!
