Sports days at Marybank were very traditional when I arrived, where the focus was on rewarding winners, even though not everyone was good at sports. 1993 was the first of the new format, where all pupils competed for themselves, getting their best result as they progressed through activities. Competitors gained points and these points were won for House teams.
There were about ten stations, and each station had an activity. The stations were manned by a High School pupil, a group of whom had volunteered to help in our Sports Day. One of the High School pupils would collect the results from each event after it was over and give them to the Reverend Charles MacKinnon and Sheila Blair, who kept the scores at our Sports Day events, with Mr MacKinnon presenting the trophy and certificates to the winning team.
