The House Trophy was won by Lomond with a total of 398 points.
The inaugural ‘School of Basketball Championships’ took place at the National Performance Centre in Edinburgh recently. This was a competition for all school’s that run 'Schools’ of Basketball'. The S1 tournament was on the 29th April with the PGS S1 girls winning the tournament. The S1 boys won 1 out of 3 games. They lost their first game by 3pts and second game by 1pt so were very unfortunate. The S1 girls (pictured left) are now Scottish School’s Champions and Scottish School’s School of Basketball Champions. The S2 tournament was on the 4th May with both S2 Girls and Boys winning the tournament. This means that PGS won 3 out of 4 of the trophies available. This is a fantastic achievement for the young people involved and a great reward for all the effort they have put in through the School of Basketball. They were great ambassadors for the school at both these events. The trophies were handed out by Kieron Achara who is the Captain of the GB men’s basketball team and he played in the Olympics in London in 2012. He was very impressed with our young people and how hard they worked. Click here to see more photos.
Perth Schools Senior Boys hockey team (a combination of PGS, PHS and PA players) won the Scottish Aspire Cup on Friday 17th March at the Glasgow Commonwealth Hockey Centre beating Beaconhurst 3-0.
The score could have been much higher with the Perth team having all of the possession and pressure throughout the game (the Perth keeper didn’t have a single save to make). Ryan Cummins (pictured 2nd left) was named as Captain and dominated the game from the back with a superb performance. Angus Roberts (2nd right), Ewan Rawcliffe (left) and Scott Clark (right) were also selected for the squad. They represented the school exceptionally well throughout the competition and have developed into very skilful players (watch out staff in the staff v pupil match this year!)

Well done to the S1 Girls' Basketball Team who are now Scottish Schools Champions! They played their hearts out on Tuesday 14th March and won the game 39-24.
The Cross Country team were a credit to the school on Tuesday 14th February 2017 when participating in the Perth and Kinross Schools Cross Country event at Scone Racecourse. They finished 2nd overall out of the 5 “Big Schools”. Special mention should go to Eilidh Davies (S1) and Beth Laing (S2) who both finished 2nd in their races. Well done to all participants.
