Clydebank pupils had a scarily good time on Hallowe’en as they took part in a dodgeball competition.

The West Dunbartonshire School Games (WDSG) saw pupils from Edinbarnet, Gavinburn, St Joseph’s, Whitecrook, St Mary’s, Carlieth, Goldenhill, Kilbowie, St Eunan’s, Linnvale, St Stephen’s, Clydemuir, Our Lady of Loretto, and Kilpatrick all compete.

The top school from each qualifying heat progresses to the WDSG finals in November where they will play against the top schools from Dumbarton and the Vale.

Goldenhill were crowned the champions of heat one and St Mary’s of heat two. They will be joined by Gavinburn in the finals after they qualified as best runners up.

And as it was Hallowe’en the schools were invited to dress up, with Whitecrook and Kilpatrick schools rewarded for their efforts.

A West Dunbartonshire Leisure Trust spokeswoman said: “The dodgeball festival is always popular with schools. The kids have a great time and the energy in the hall is fantastic.

“The dodgeball also kicks off the first of the school games finals which take place in the evenings to allow parents to come and support their children. We had a great time on the day and are looking forward to the finals.”
