Football Mascots! By Caragh McAninch – P7

Olivia Swan (P6) and Peter McAninch (P2) were picked to be Celtic Football Club mascots at the St Johnstone vs Celtic game earlier this month.  It was a very exciting time for their family, friends, and classmates and of course, them!  Olivia and Peter were really lucky as they got to meet players, take photos, have a kick about with St Johnstone’s mascots and they even got to lead Celtic out onto the pitch at McDiarmid Park!  Peter and Olivia were both so happy and judging from the footage of them before leading their team onto the pitch- they were extremely excited!
