We have been working closely with Jacky, our Active Schools Co-ordinator to sign post our pupils to activities, clubs and sports outside school. One effective way of doing this is to run taster classes in school to let the pupils have a go and find out about different sports.
We were delighted to welcome Jacky and three senior pupils from Oldmachar Academy to our school to work with our upper stages classes on some basketball skills. This had the added advantage of also letting our pupils find out more about life at their future secondary school in a fun and relaxed way.
Every second Monday, we also welcome two senior pupils from the Academy to work with our Primary Two pupils as part of their Pupil Leadership Academy. We look forward to extending these positive links for the benefit of pupils in both schools.
