Pupils from across Midlothian helped ensure that the recent National School Sport Week (NSSW) was a huge success.

Scotland’s largest celebration of school sport, NSSW (June 11-15) saw county primary schools compete in a Mini Olympic Games.

The competition comprised a mixture of track and field events, and was held at central venues in Penicuik, Newbattle, Bonnyrigg and Dalkeith.

Each school was invited to enter a team of 12 P1 to P3 pupils, and youngsters were encouraged to showcase their sporting achievements.
