PSHE – developing the rounded child

Prep schools are learning environments preparing children for the next step in their education; senior school. Perhaps this might be a day school just around the corner or a boarding school in Scotland, England or further afield.

The children will be ready for their next maths or science project, they understand volcanoes and French vocab but are they ready and capable to manage and respond to other essential aspects which impacts them and their ability to learn …. Life skills?

These skills are incredibly important for children. Historically they have fallen into the grey area out with traditional subjects and not always been given the relevant time or focus in class. Do children understand their personal development, how their bodies change and the impact? What is self-esteem and self-worth? Is it ok to fail? How do I cope and how do I process this? Having the mechanics to respond to disappointment is an incredibly valuable life skill for us all. I would argue these skills are of significant importance and in fact compliment all aspects of one’s education. The PSHE association confirms “pupils with better health and wellbeing can achieve better academically and enjoy greater success.”

What are the critical issues children face today and will face in the coming years? Be that the vast area of mental health, stress, study techniques, personal safety, sexuality, health, decision making, bullying or, communities and responsibilities the list is endless. The charity Place2be, who have recently responded to the Scottish Government’s mental health and wellbeing strategy consultation, point out “50% of mental health problems in adults first develop before the age of 14 [Mental Health Foundation]. We must focus on prevention, early intervention and providing support at an early stage.” The big question is how do we as a school best do this? Prep schools have a wonderful opportunity to mould and strengthen the whole person and therefore we must prioritise this.

Cargilfield is doing exactly that. Not only are we passionate and dedicated towards the child’s academic ability, their sporting, musical and artistic talents, but we are equally caring for the all-round development of each child. We understand that helping produce more balanced and rounded pupils will contribute hugely in the classroom, on the pitch, on stage and in life. One of the key pillars, is a “whole school approach” which includes an up to date, relevant and dynamic PSHE curriculum.

The topics are wide-ranging and fluid and when delivered well will start to help nurture a confident, responsible, healthy, thoughtful independent young person. PSHE covers the following key areas; Personal, Social, Health and Economic. Lessons tend to focus on pupil wellbeing rather than information/data and exam results. We adapt and change lessons in order to deal with issues that are affecting children in “real time” and we are able to discuss events which affect them on both a personal and generational level. Well researched, engaging and relevant classes will allow children to participate, discuss and understand these areas and how they benefit and learn from them moving forward. Lessons are mostly interactive and involve sharing, listening and learning from others. This style reinforces support mechanisms, respect and honesty all which contribute to higher Emotional Intelligence and wellbeing. For example, one topic is “Understanding Relationships”. There are discussions, group work and other collaborative activities that highlight what good friendships are, how to choose role models with similar values and how this helps build confidence and resilience. This should assist children to make better decisions and challenge one’s self to do better.

Another example is “Coping Strategies” when dealing with disappointment. We discuss how disappointments are normal, that they can be managed and utilised as a springboard for improvement and turned into a positive. Children learn it is good to talk about these experiences, listen and know who to speak to, how to do something differently and the value of seeing things from another perspective. Topics can be general or more specific such as drugs or sexuality and continue throughout each year group allowing us to deliver and continue appropriate conversations at the right time.

The happier the child is the more confident they become, leading them to embrace opportunities, challenge themselves in a supportive and safe environment, and thus grow and flourish in all aspects, which is our ultimate goal.

introTextLittle things to do which aid the learning process
leftColBody

We are all built very differently and learning styles and speeds can vary from not only child to child but also, week to week. It can be difficult to keep up with all the excellent teaching and learning taking place at Cargilfield. You, yourself, may have asked a teacher what you could be doing to help your child reach their potential, this may also be an especially daunting question should your child have a specific learning difficulty. I would like to take the opportunity to summarised some areas where you could help boost your child’s learning from the home front.

In Maths, in the Pre-prep, the fundamental learning is based around a child’s understanding of number. What it really means: how big a number is, what it looks like divided up and seeing it as a concrete object, picture or a graphic representation. Once the children move the Upper School this remains an important concept but their knowledge of their multiplication and division tables(timestables) soon becomes the driving force behind their experience and success in Maths, as it is used in almost all of the syllabus. It, therefore, goes without saying that slower recall can lead to challenges in mastering increasingly complex and abstract concept. By the time they get to Form 6, not knowing their timestables will can have a real impact on learning and development. The majority of us would have been subjected to the age-old method of rote learning, which although is a method that works well for some, for most it does not translate to retention of knowledge. There are a multitude of methods which can be used ,in addition to rote learning, that will really help your child see the groupings effectively and understand the structure, patterns and commutative law of timestables. 

At this point, I would like to refer you to an excellent blog written by Fiona Mackerron on learning multiplication tables which you can read here. As is often the case, little and often is always the best approach no matter which style of learning fits best.

The abstract nature of maths means that small and seemingly irrelevant slipups very quickly lead to anxieties and dislike of a topic. In a bid to help reduce this, we have signed up the form 4 and 5s to Timestables Rock Stars. It is an excellent website, app and organisation which takes the pressure and attention off learning timestables by masking it in a scenario of equipping your Rock Star avatar with the skills, and wardrobe, to climb the fame ladder. We are hoping the children will really enjoy this and want to practice and improve their knowledge as often as they can. These year groups will receive an email with their child’s login and password and more details once it is fully set up at school.

In literacy the foundations lie on good knowledge of letter, sound and common words. Your child will have ample opportunities to practice all of these skills while at school and over the last few terms there has been a big push to make reading, as well as reading for enjoying, a core part of pupils’ weekly schedules. That being said, any additional interest in reading from home will massively benefit your child’s development. Modelling reading for enjoyment from a young age, practicing reading aloud to an adult and having a core bank of well-known common words will make a big impact on literacy development.

Although both Mathematic and Literacy core skills are essential for learning and development, there are other factors which can change the trajectory of your children learning journey. One being their mental readiness to learn. A child’s confidence in themselves and their abilities to succeed can wreak havoc on their mental readiness and can lead to a vicious cycle of defeats.

Fortunately, there are many small ways to help ensure they are in their best head space to learn. Mental health is a vast and complex topic and ensuring your child’s wellbeing can take many forms. In the relation to this blog, I would like to focus on the availability of personal equipment and time to process in the morning.

Ensuring a pencil case is well stocked may seem a small ,insignificant , and for many unending, task but time taken to find essential equipment in lessons takes away from focused time and puts a child on the back foot from the get go. A half term check-up may prove very beneficial for many. Essential equipment every pencil case should include is: a bank of ready sharpened pencils or cartridge filled pens, a sharpener, ruler (30cms is best), rubber, scissors, glue and highlighter.

Having a young child myself, I know that leaving the house on time and “calmly” is sometimes a difficult task but just as we adults need time when we time to process the start of the day so do the children. Registration is a busy time in every class, with a lot of learning and “getting ready for the day” happening, ensuring children are in class by at least 8:20 really helps them to have the time to not only process the transition from home to school but also hear all essential information for the day, look at their spellings, Maths, Latin or French work and ensure they are themselves physically and mentally ready for the day.

Welcome to our latest mini concert, and the final one of the first half of term! It has been such a busy few weeks musically with the highlight perhaps being the Chapel Choir singing at the HMC and IAPS Heads’ inter faith service at St Cuthbert’s Church. It was a real honour to be invited and to perform in front of so many Heads from schools right across the UK.

Welcome to our latest mini concert, and the final one of the first half of term! It has been such a busy few weeks musically with the highlight perhaps being the Chapel Choir singing at the HMC and IAPS Heads’ inter faith service at St Cuthbert’s Church. It was a real honour to be invited and to perform in front of so many Heads from schools right across the UK.

It has been a very successful and positive first half of term, which was capped off with a wonderful performance at the Loretto 7s on Sunday. We were the current holders, having won the trophy back in 2019, the last year it was held due to COVID, but we did play some outstanding sevens, showing a huge amount of skill and awareness of space and also a real desire to defend as a team. Jason White, former Scotland Captain and now Head of Sport at Loretto, was very complimentary about the sevens we played, moving the ball out in to the wide channels and then resetting and going again, and again, and again until the holes appeared. A mighty fine performance and deserved winners. The Ardvreck 7s are just after we start back, and we should be amongst the favourites if we play like this......we were patient, we looked after the ball so well and were ruthless when the gaps appeared. Having won the Ardvreck tournament last year, I can't wait to test ourselves again.

We conceded only three or four tries all day, playing over 80 minutes of rugby, and what pleased me most was the patience we showed, keeping the ball for long periods, making good decisions and waiting for the holes in the opposition defence to appear, which inevitably they did - proper sevens and it was lovely to watch.  In defence, we swarmed all over the opposition, forcing them back, keeping our shape and discipline and sides then panicked and then we pounced and won the ball back.

A dominant display, and we will be there to be shot at at Ardvreck when we return from half term.  Bit an awesome day, and Mr Stephen and I were very proud of you all and they way that you looked to carry out the gameplay game after game.

introTextAn excellent team performance!
leftColBody

It was a real pleasure to take the Under 13 girls in the sunshine on the Gillespie astroturf this afternoon. They played with real energy and determination and were too strong for a gutsy Ardvreck team, coming out as winners by six goals to nil.

I was especially pleased by how all ten girls responded to rotating positions and yet still trying to maintain their positional discipline. Amalia captained the team and set the tone in the middle of the pitch, opening the scoring in the first quarter. Valentina was also especially effective up front for the first half and made a nuisance of herself around the Ardvreck defence.

The 6-0 scoreline might suggest that Ardvreck had few chances but that would be to underplay the determined efforts of Hattie, Emilia and Bea in defence (latterly Anne and Jacqueline moving back from their place on the wings to join them) and the unflustered presence of Lyla in goal.

I must add congratulations to Julia and Beth who also played well going forward and added to the threat that Cargilfield maintained around the Ardvreck goal. Their keeper did well to keep the score down to single figures.

The team spirit and enthusiasm of this group made for an enjoyable afternoon in the sunshine. Well done.

The team today could not be faulted for their hard work and determination today! They played around the pitch and tried out different positions to their preferred with a smile on their faces. Our targets were met as the wings were used and they hardly ever drove the ball into the other team. Congrats to our team consisting of Cece, captain Lottie, Lucia, Rosanna, Lily, Clara B, Clara H, Alexandra, Jemima and Isla S-A and special mention to most of the team for scoring a goal of their own! A great day, some great hockey, some lovely skills shown off and definite improvement shown throughout.

U11 IAPS Hockey Qualifiers

2nd Place

Wednesday afternoon was spent at Fettes representing Cargilfield at the U11 IAPS Qualifiers. The girls had a very tough round robin pool coming up against St Marys, Loretto and St Peters. The squad of Scarlett, Athena, Olivia, Emily, Thalia, Livia, Beatrice & Zinnia started off slow. The first game they came up against St Peters with Scarlett saving a couple good shots on goal. The girls managed knock one into the back of the goal finishing 1-0 and gaining 3 points. Their second two games were a lot tougher with their old rivals from Sunday's 7’s tournament St Marys and Loretto both finishing their games with draws. 1-1 against Loretto and 0-0 against St Marys. This resulted in us coming 2nd in the pool going through to the semi-finals against Fettes who had won their pool.

The semi finals against Fettes started off strong, their most impressive match of the tournament with lots of passing, shots on goals and really good linking between the players. Livia scored a hattrick with Lotte coming on to finish the game 4-0 with a final shot on goal before full time. This sent the girls whooping and celebrating as they had made the final.

The final was against Loretto. Both teams started off with strong tackling making it difficult for the players to get to each other’s shooting circles. Loretto had some very strong and good tacklers who started to win balls when Cargilfield players held onto the ball for too long giving them possession and an attacking advantage on Cargilfield. Loretto managed to score one goal past Scarlett GK in about the 5th minute.

The girls came back with shot after shot after shot around the goal but it just would not cross the line. The final score finished 2-0 to Loretto and so we finishing second overall. The girls are improving week on week but there is still a lot to work on for the future!

We had some wonderful Cargilfield FP’s helpers who were there to look after us at the tournament Charlie, Lilly and Iris. Cargilfield parents were also a wonderful support from the side line and Athena’s brother also dropped by to cheer her on.

Well done!

The girls came back with shot after shot after shot around the goal but it just would not cross the line. The final score finished 2-0 to Loretto and so we finishing second overall. The girls are improving week on week but there is still a lot to work on for the future!

We had some wonderful Cargilfield FP’s helpers who were there to look after us at the tournament Charlie, Lilly and Iris. Cargilfield parents were also a wonderful support from the side line and Athena’s brother also dropped by to cheer her on.

Well done!

U11A Rugby v Ardvreck

10-7 win

In perfect rugby conditions, we played a lively team from Ardvreck. Jamie acted as captain for the day, with Caspian away, and he led his team well. We kept a good shape and defended well on the whole. A couple of missed first-time tackles let the Ardvreck boys in for some easy tries, but otherwise, we defended well with some notable work from Hamish and Wilf. Edward and Jamie were both particularly strong over the ball and managed to turn-over a good few balls. Johnnie stepped up well today, playing his first U11A match and he made some solid chop tackles and ran directly when he could. Theo and Oliver were a constant threat on the wing and it would have been good to get the ball too them a bit more often. Lochy also played well and linked well with some good hands. James swarmed up in defence and put early hits in against the opposition before they could get any speed up, which was helpful. It was great to see Toby back in action after a prolonged injury kept him off and he played very well.

Overall, we played some good rugby and scored some well-worked tries. Passing the ball before contact and holding onto possession are areas to work on, as well as giving the ball to our speedy runners in space.

It was another lovely day for hockey as we welcomed Ardvreck. We wanted to continue our winning run from the weekend and the girls were up for the battle. We started off really strong with Miranda running the show in midfield and giving some great through balls for Scarlett M and Isla C to score. We continued to dominate possession for the second quarter and went into half time a few goals up. The third quarter was a different story with Ardvreck pepering our goal and getting at least 7 short corners. Fortunately, Isla G kept them out. We improved again in he final quarter and came away with a well-earned victory.

Well done on a great game and let’s keep going.

On a brisk autumnal afternoon our 2nd XV looked to continue their unbeaten run with a challenging match up against Merchiston. Last time out, Cargilfield lost a pulsating fixture at the start of the season by a couple of scores and were looking to enact revenge for that loss. Merchiston kicked off and after multiple phases of good possession Cargilfield lost the ball and two quick passes later Merchiston were under the posts against the run of play. Another score for Merchiston quickly followed and earlier on in the season, that would have been that and we might well have crumbled. Different story today, Felix and Kit led the way back up the field, which led to Rufus powering over from close range. Another sustained spell of Cargilfield possession led to an outstanding burst from Jamie, with Monty on hand to dot down the ball and give Cargilfield the lead. In the final play of the first half Merchiston scored a well crafted try to lead 15-14 at the break.

The second half unfortunately followed a similar path to the first. Merchiston scored two rapid tries that took the game away from Cargilfield. We had chances to finish off a number of well worked and patient possessions, but unfortunately today was not going to be our day. Jamie powered over in the last play of the game for a deserving consolation for his efforts. Overall, this was an immensely positive performance and is testament to how every single boy has improved over the course of the term. We have a tour to look forward to and build towards, plus a final game with Merchiston before Christmas, where we hope to run them close.

Final Score: 21-41

Scorers: Monty, Rufus, Jamie

POTM: Kit & Felix

It has been a very successful and positive first half of term, which was capped off with a wonderful performance at the Loretto 7s on Sunday. We were the current holders, having won the trophy back in 2019, the last year it was held due to COVID, but we did play some outstanding sevens, showing a huge amount of skill and awareness of space and also a real desire to defend as a team. Jason White, former Scotland Captain and now Head of Sport at Loretto, was very complimentary about the sevens we played, moving the ball out in to the wide channels and then resetting and going again, and again, and again until the holes appeared. A mighty fine performance and deserved winners.  The Ardvreck 7s are just after we start back, and we should be amongst the favourites if we play like this......we were patient, we looked after the ball so well and were ruthless when the gaps appeared.  Having won the Ardvreck tournament last year, I can't wait to test ourselves again.

Before we head off for half term, we welcomed Ardvreck to Cargilfield. It is always a pleasure to host our friends from Perthshire, and although they were down on bodies this year, we did move some players around and although the scoreline was very on sided, the men in green never gave up. I was delighted with the running rugby we played, the lines we ran off the ball, our work at the breakdown and then moving the ball quickly away in to the space out wide which allowed us to score a lot of tries. We have achieved such a lot since the start of term, and I have been so impressed with the way that this group of boys have come together, worked so hard and played some outstanding rugby over the last few weeks. There is a real sense of ‘team’ amongst them, all working together for the good of the team and this is what will stand us in good stead when we return after half term.

When we get back, we have Dollar on Wednesday, Sedbergh on Friday, Ardvreck 7s on Sunday, Craigclowan on Wednesday, then Giggleswick, Aysgarth and Sedbergh down on tour. That is a lot of rugby against quality sides so I am looking forward to seeing how we rise to the challenge and keep this momentum going.

Very well done indeed, boys; we have played some excellent rugby and we have developed so well as a team.  Now enjoy a great half term, and some rest!

The Under-10s hosted Merchiston for their third touch-rugby clash this season. With eight players on each side, free space on the pitch was at a premium and, with both sides enforcing a reasonably tight defensive line, tries were initially difficult to come by despite the unlimited touches allowed. Merchiston, however, managed to make some room with some fancy footwork, scoring the first two tries before Cargilfield responded with their own try. The score went on to alternate in favour of each team at various times but Cargilfield led by one try at half-time. The first half had ended with quite an open game but the second half proved to be a much tighter affair - whilst some agile footwork was again on display in attack, determined defence kept the scores down. Defensively, Ethan and Honour were outstanding; Ethan putting continual pressure on the opposition and Honour making numerous try-saved touches. Cargilfield’s highlight of the match was undoubtedly the try scored in the first half, where Salman made an excellent run to within three yards of the try line, drew the defenders in and then passed the ball out wide to where Finlay and Freddie were waiting, perfectly positioned; Freddie dotted down as cool as you like!

Merchiston won by a single try in the end but the Cargilfield boys can be proud of some excellent rugby, particularly their passing and awareness - which are developing very positively.

introTextA lovely service at Cramond Kirk
leftColBody

It was lovely to walk down to Cramond Kirk this morning to celebrate Harvest Festival! Harking back to the old days when the boarders would walk down in their kilts for the Sunday Service, the Upper School headed down to the Kirk and we enjoyed a lovely service taken by Rev Gilmour and it was super to have so many parents come along to celebrate with us. Well down to all the various choirs who sang and to all of our readers.

introTextCelebrating in medieval style!
leftColBody

It was Castle Day in P2, and the children arrived in splendid fashion dressed in their medieval costumes. The day started with a Ceilidh dance called “The Swedish masquerade” performed under the watchful eye of their dance teacher, Mrs Brockbank. Our magnificently dressed Lords and Ladies held their heads high as they marched in the opening section of the dance. They became the castle ghosts in the waltz section and then, in the polka section, became frogs jumping in the moat!

Inspired by a medieval jester performing some tricky juggling tricks we then had a go juggling ourselves using some colourful scarves. We even did some acrobatics by balancing on top of each other in a pyramid shape. Carrying on the jester theme, we then made our own jester hats out of coloured card.

Meanwhile the cooks were busy in the castle kitchen preparing a scrumptious banquet for us to eat in the Great Hall. We ate some hot vegetable broth then a variety of cold meats including ‘wild boar’, ‘pheasant’ drumsticks, ‘venison pie’ and some ‘quails’ eggs. We ate vegetables grown in the castle gardens and drank ‘wine’ crushed from the grapes. Dessert followed with delicious strawberry tarts and jellied fruits. We ate off slices of stale bread called ‘trenchers’ and ate with our fingers. There were no forks in medieval times! During our feast we welcomed Lord Taylor of Cargilfield who had just returned from a morning of hunting in the forest, and we entertained him with our hilarious jester jokes.

The afternoon saw us training to be knights and performing various challenges. Each required strength, accuracy and bravery and a lot of perseverance! We threw spears at increasing distances and practiced our jousting skills by aiming our lances through rings while charging on our hobby horses. We concluded the afternoon with a highly spirited game trying to capture the flag from each other's castles.

A huge thank you to all of you for helping to make our P2 Medieval Castle Day such a memorable one.

introTextWhat fabulous gun dogs!
leftColBody

The children present for this week's Wednesday lecture were in for a real canine treat today as they learnt all about training the working gun dog. Raymond from Walkerton Gundogs talked about the different training equipment, from showing us how to make sure a slip lead was put on safely so as not to harm the dog, to the various 'dummies' that help train with retrieval. We then moved outside to see it in action. First up was Ruby, an 8 year old English springer spaniel that Raymond confessed hadn't had any formal training for over a year. She did him proud as she had remembered all the commands and gave a fantastic demonstration of being sent for the retrieve. Then Beau followed; a 2 year old English springer spaniel. He too was superb with his obedience. I think it's safe to say everybody fell in love with Ruby and Beau, especially after being able to stroke them at the end!

LC foragingP1 visited Lauriston Castle to find out more about Autumn. They had a wonderful time collecting different colours of leaves, conkers, chestnuts, berries and acorns. They found all sorts of mushrooms and toadstools to draw and ate handfuls of brambles. Muddy puddles were found to splash in and everyone came back with backpacks full of evidence of nature preparing for Winter.

introTextAnother terrific team performance
leftColBody

A lovely sunny afternoon down in the Borders and another excellent team performance by the 1stXV against what was a very plucky St Mary’s side who never gave up and carried the ball well throughout the game which made it a competitive game despite a very one sided score line in the end.

Once again, the emphasis was a strong defensive and I was delighted with the communication, aggressive first time tackling and then our work at the breakdown which was outstanding once again, an area of the game that we once again dominated, with Xander in particular effecting numerous turnovers. I was especially pleased with the way we listened to the referee, allowed the opposition to win the ball if the ruck was lost and then reset the defensive line. It was very intelligent rugby and these good habits will serve us well in the big games to come after half term. In attack, we ran some very good lines, making good decisions when to get the ball in to the wide channels, or use the forwards off Conrad and Charles to take the ball up the middle again; our off loading was excellent too, allowing us to change the point of attack and stretch the opposition defences. We did leave a few tries out there if I was being really critical, but we reacted well when they kicked, and Ewan, as ever, was sure under the high ball and his dancing feet meant we were able to go again in attack with the forwards operating really well as a unit. I took Conrad off after half time, and it was good to see how we reacted to this, and although we lacked a little fire power in the centre, we moved the ball well and both wingers saw plenty of the ball which made it a highly entertaining game for the crowd on the side lines and St Mary’s never gave up which made it a good game of rugby, despite the final score.

We scored ten tries, converted most of them, but more than that, we played really well as a team once again. It is good to see the spirit amongst the team and the way you work together and support and encourage each other will pay dividends when the big games come. Well played once again, boys.

Our 2nd XV were back in action this week, with a long trip down to the borders to face St Mary’s Melrose. The boys managed to get the journey out of the legs quickly and thanks to some incredible defensive work from Harry, Fred and Monty, we managed to get on the scoresheet with Theo dancing through their defence to register our first points. The first half maintained that familiar rhythm, St Mary’s would pull together lots of phases, but ultimately our defensive work rate would force a turnover leading to a Cargilfield breakaway. Jamie benefitted three times as a result of this and gave Cargilfield a 28-7 lead at the break.

The second half brought changes, but with that lots of opportunities for players to try new positions. Credit to the boys, they played some fantastic stuff in both attack and defence. Alexander and Fred both crossed for outstanding individual tries, but also, alongside Charles contributed effectively in our defensive tenacity. A work on for the boys next week is to move the ball into space before contact: that being said, it was an outstanding performance and momentum is building nicely as we approach half term.

POTM: Charles and Alexander

Score: 42-19

Scorers: Theo, Alexander, Fred, Dexter, Jamie x3

The wind and rain did not stop our U9 girls to play at home against St Mary’s with a team consisting of Thandie, Isobel, Polly, Maria, Imaan and Serena. The girls were very focused and motivated. During the first quarter Isobel opened the score for Cargilfield. Thandy was zigzagging between the opponents with ease. Our two defenders Serena, and Imaan managed to get the ball away a number of times and it was even Serena who run up to St Mary’s D and scored the 3rd goal for Cargilfield in the last few minutes. The girls did not score in the second quarter and during half time they kept their positivity. All this optimism helped them score in the 3rd quarter thanks to some team effort, finalised by Polly.

Well done girls, this was a brilliant match.

Under 13A vs St Mary’s

7-0 win

It was a cold and wet day. Our aim for the game was to start off strong and be on the front foot, unfortunately St Marys had the same idea and started off stronger than us. With our forwards being critical in their finishing this season, we were lucky enough to have a couple break away goals and go into half time break in the lead. We had a decent chat at half time and wanted more structure in our play. We occasionally were caught out by St Marys taking the foul very quickly. This has given us ideas on what to work on and we need to read and understand the game a bit more.

Apart from that the girls had a hard-fought win and played some fantastic hockey and I hope we can keep up the intensity this season.

Well done on a good win.

U11A Rugby v St Mary’s

6-5 win

Cargilfield hosted a talented, quick Rugby team from St Mary’s Melrose today and it we were entertained with a competitive, skilful game of U11 Rugby. We started with our customary sleepiness, conceding 2 tries before we started playing properly. It took a thunderous tackle from our captain, Caspian, to wake the boys up and get them into the game. We scored three tries in a row, as the St Mary’s boys tired and more space opened up along the wings. Wilf scored in the corner first with some good passes from Leonardo and James. Theo showed great strength to muscle over for our next try and then Oliver showed electric feet to dodge past a few defenders to score. Despite heavy rain and wind, both teams passed the ball around well and tried to keep the wingers with plenty ball in hand. The St Mary’s boys competed well at the breakdown and turned the ball over well a number of times. They managed to score a great try just before half time, leaving the game poised at 3-3.

In the second half, the even match continued with both teams scoring 2 terrific tries each. It was a nail-biting finish as Cargilfield pressed hard on the St Mary’s try line. A charged down kick almost saw Miguel go over. A strong charge from Jamie came close to scoring by brave defence also just kept out. It looked like Theo had scored for sure before somehow a last-ditch tackle managed to keep him inches short of the line. The St Mary’s boys cleared with a super kick but, luckily for us, Hamish was the quickest boy back. He gathered the ball and ran back hard into the advancing green shirts. Lochy was quick to support at the following ruck and Edward linked well to set up another phase. Hamish chose a super line outside the defence and managed to sprint in from around half way. The St Mary’s boys mounted one last attack but their runner was slowed down by Theo before being solidly tackled into touch by Vice-Captain Jamie to end the game. It was a narrow victory and a great game, which was very even between both sides. We played some good rugby and I hope the boys can take some confidence into the Loretto 7’s on Sunday.

Well played, boys.

U11/U10 Hockey v St. Mary’s

Some brilliant head to head hockey was had over at Tweedbank against St. Mary’s for our U11/10s team. Our squad had a strong set of players (Ceci L our captain, Freya M, Zinnia W, Alice B, Helena S, Isla S-A and Florence N) who were determined from the first whistle. St. Mary’s found our weak point and used the wing to dribble around us twice for some lovely but unlucky goals. Almost as quickly as it happened, Cece displayed her almost frighteningly powerful striking abilities by rocketing two shots into the goal (and a bonus disallowed one too!) and brought the game back level.

Alice and Zinnia became a dream tag team and used all the flair they could muster up to score right through half of the opposing team who had all congregated in the D to try and stop the goal. Flo wanted in on the action too and never gave up to score a lovely goal herself right into the bottom right corner. After a brief pause, we decided to continue on with some post-whistle injury time in which St. Mary’s attempted a comeback. Thankfully for the team, Freya and Helena were having none of this and created a human wall in defence. Isla, using her superpower of ball-snatching, once again brilliantly tackled a player, ran up the wing and passed to Ceci who shot so hard into the goal that the opposition jumped in the air.

Of course we also jumped in the air as we finished the game on a 5-3 win and congratulated each other on the major improvement which we’ve witnessed happen since only the start of the week. We showed our off-pitch pizazz by belting out 80s hits on the school bus to round out a lovely day of hockey. Shoutout to Freya our Player of the Match for being all over the pitch and constantly giving it her all throughout the whole game!

U10 Rugby at Clifton Hall

The boys travelled past the airport to Clifton Hall for an Under-10s rugby tournament on Wednesday. With Edinburgh Academy, George Watson’s and Compass School also attending, the boys had four matches to look forward to.

The first match saw Cargilfield pitted against The Compass School, who proved to be our toughest opponents on the day. The boys managed to battled their way through some excellent tackling to score first but Compass soon came back and exploited some unconfident tackling to score the next two tries. Cargilfield improved as the match went on but had left too much to do as the match ended in a 3-6 loss.

The next match was a closer encounter against the hosts. Our boys took some of the lessons they had learned in the previous match to improve their performance and earn well-fought victory by a single try, 6-5.

The third match was against George Watson’s College and for the first five minutes the boys struggled to deal with the pace and quick offloads of the opposition but they stuck in there and when GWC began to flag a little in the last minutes, they were able to press their advantage and end as 7-5 winners.

In the final match, tired but determined, the boys took on Edinburgh Academy for another tightly contested match. Both teams tackled well and attacked resolutely too, leaving the game poised 4-4 in the final minute. Cargilfield managed to seize possession and ran in one more try to finished off the match 5-4 winners.

Well done to all the boys for the fortitude they showed, their determination to improve and their sporting attitudes. Also, a big thank you to Clifton Hall for hosting a very successful event.

With a wet start to our bus ride to the Melrose our U11 girls’ squad of Scarlett (GK), Olivia (Capt), Athena, Emily B, Thalia, Lottie, Livia and Beatrice arrived at Tweedbank ready for the games ahead. The girls were all keen to get started and Olivia won the toss to allow Cargilfield to start with the first centre pass. The girls started off slow sharing possession with St Mary’s equally. There was a lot of tacking with balls being passed through the centre of the pitch and it being like a tennis match back and forward. In defence Beatrice and Thalia were working on their tackling and attempting to pass wide, this took a while to set in but when they managed to achieve it they could see the benefits with Olivia, Emily and Athena being able to run the ball up the pitch towards our attacking circle. Emily and Athena had a busy game running a lot between attack and defence. Our set up around a free hit or side line was excellent with the girls working as a team however we need to work on setting this up faster and making sure we are in front of the opposition.

St Mary’s scored the first goal with a one on one with Scarlett, very difficult for her to defend. We then came back stronger with Lottie scoring with a hard hit from the top of the circle making a loud noise on the back board. Both teams continued to work hard. Finally, a second goal by Athena was scored to finish the game 2-1 win.

The girls have a lot to work on for next week especially with a bust weekend ahead with getting into spaces and moving wide, working more as a team and trusting one another, keeping their skills simple, communication and staying in their position so not to tackle their own player.

Today’s player of the game is Beatrice DH for her fantastic one on one with the defence and being a very difficult to get past with strong tackles, Well done!

U9 A Girls Hockey v St Mary’s

Lost 3 -9

The U9As met some very tough opposition in St Mary’s U9As this afternoon. Whilst we had a useful warm up game where Emilie and Isobel, in particular, played very well, we found it very difficult to get the ball past St Mary’s in the proper game. Augus was very strong in defence but St Mary’s scored 3 goals in the first quarter, showcasing their V Drags and J turns to get around our players, calling for the ball and generally keeping much better shape than Cargilfield. One goal unfortunately came off a Cargilfield foot. We were very persistent, however and we never gave up, but too often any successful tackling led to our players not knowing who to pass to, as we were far too close together. We regularly just hit the ball up the pitch rather than dribbling and passing to a player. Anastasia adopted a lovely low and strong position and often managed to get the ball but there was no one obvious to pass it to.

In the second quarter we spread out more and played a bit better. No further goals were scored. In the third quarter we picked up and Emilie and Isobel both scored. Esme who had swopped into defence, took a great hit out and we were unlucky not to score again. In the final quarter heavy rain dampened our spirits and despite Anastasia scoring a lovely goal, we were unable to stop three more from St Mary’s. Hettie was their top goal scorer and she played very well indeed, scoring at least a hat trick. One shot bounced off the side post onto the other side and was then deflected in. It was a very strong performance from St Mary’s and they won convincingly 9 goals to 3.

Well done for your persistence, girls. I was proud that you kept on trying until the end.

We were at Clifton Hall and played 5 short matches against Mary Erskine’s, Compass, Clifton Hall, Fettes and George Watson’s. It was a good chance for the girls to get more hockey matches, although there were some competitive matches. The first game against Mary Erskine’s was a 1-0 win and we came close to coming back against Fettes and Clifton Hall. Compass were a good team and won 2-0 and Watson’s was a tough end to the tournament but they were a strong team.  

All the girls played their part well but could do with spreading out more and finding the space. Well done to Georgia and Eleora who, as U9s, were playing up. They both showed they could compete at this age. Alexandra did well on the ball and carried it forward. Jemima was a good winger and tracked back well in defence. Glory was a terrific captain and covered much of the pitch. Praise was a solid defender today and made some crucial tackles. Lily progressed very well throughout the afternoon and played particularly well at the back, clearing the ball strongly. Clara was the highest scorer today and scored some terrific goals.

Well done girls, on a 4G pitch and in wet conditions, I was impressed with how you kept going and didn’t give up!

What a treat it was to play early George Heriot's on what was a glorious Saturday morning at Goldenacre! The boys had been looking forward to this for a while, given that Heriots were coached by Ewan who has been coaching cricket on Thursday evenings with me at Cargilfield for 17 years and there had been plenty of banter at nets last week from both sides, but as ever, it was important for us to do our talking on the pitch and after what had been a very positive team performance and convincing win against Belhaven on Wednesday, the boys were eager to keep improving and working on our patterns of play for when the crunch games of the season come after half term.

The first half saw us play some terrific attacking rugby, and Heriots never really got a look in.  Defensively, we were very aggressive, coming up quickly and tackling well, whilst our work at the breakdown was outstanding, turning over a lot of ball and rucking with real speed and aggression which allowed the three quarter line to play on the front foot.  Heriots were not a bad side, but we really blew them away with the speed we played at, moving the ball really well in to the wide channels, our support play was outstanding and we dominated the breakdown, as we usually do, which always provides quality possession for the backs.  We ran in 8 tries in total with Heriots scoring two well worked tries of their own, but the game was long gone, and Mr Stephen and I really enjoyed watching you play from the touchline, working hard as a team, playing really unselfishly and looking to play heads up rugby from wherever we were on the pitch.  Importantly, our decision making was excellent, and we made very few errors in the first half; we did not try to do too much, but looked after the ball very well and were patient, never trying to force things and pulled the opposition around the field until the space appeared.

A very good day at the office and one where we put another marker down as to how we want to play this season.  Well played indeed, boys; a terrific team performance.

introTextAn excellent team performance
leftColBody

Despite the loss, the boys should be proud of their progress and courage in today’s exciting game of U11 Rugby. We played on a narrow, very long pitch, which suited the quicker players. We also played 9-aside as the Heriots squad had lots of players. We only had 10, so, with only one sub, the boys had a tough shift today. Unfortunately, there are some boys the Y6 group that were unable to make the fixture today. 

Still, the F5’s bravely fronted up and I was incredibly impressed with Wilf, Miguel, Lochy and Hamish who all played with skill and guts. There were some excellent tackles from all of them, strong hands and a couple of neat turn-overs at the ruck too. The F6’s that did make it were excellent. Caspian and Jamie led with determination and did a lot of ball carrying today. A couple of times it looked as though a line break from these two powerful runners would lead to a try but the pitch seemed to go on forever! Edward grew into the match as it went and I was pleased to see some of his form from the previous season begin to return. Leonardo had his best game of the term so far, carrying well and scoring a great try. He held on in the tackle and was pugnacious, which is what we were looking for from him. Theo had another very promising game on the wing and should feel proud of his game. Oliver also played exceptionally well, looking for the ball on every play. He scored a breath-taking try in the second half, dancing his way past a host of defenders. We need to get him on the ball more!

Every player who turned up today performed very well and deserves to feel very proud of their performance. Well done, boys.

Form finally made it to France after many postponements due to Covid regulations. The children were very excited about this trip and their expectations were met as we enjoyed a sunny week in Normandy. So many activities and interesting visits such as the Mont St Michel and its quick sand, the bread making workshop, the visit of the WW2 D-day beaches and so much more. Hopefully, we will see more trips to France in the coming months…watch this place!

Cargilfield where everyday is an adventure

Welcome to Cargilfield! We hope this short film gives you a glimpse of what life is like for the girls and boys at our school. We would love to welcome you in person to tour Cargilfield and explain more fully exactly what makes a Cargilfield education so special and so different. Please get in touch with Fiona Craig, our Registrar if you would like to find out more; her email address is [email protected] or you can telephone her on 0131 336 2207.
