Sport at PPS

Sport is an important part of daily life PPS. Our pupils are enthusiastic participants in a wide range of sports. The school regularly competes at national level in shinty and in 2005 won the Mackay Cup, the national trophy. Pupils compete successfully at regional level in football, cross-country and swimming.

We are only able to offer such a wide range of sporting opportunities and to compete at such a high level nationally thanks to the support of parents and members of the community. Our dedicated team of parent coaches give freely of their time every week of the school term and we wish to acknowledge their contribution.
