The champions will be working with the pupils in PE on the following dates:
Tuesday the 26th of April
Tuesday the 17th of May
Tuesday the 7th of June
The group will have three separate visits from the champions and in between visits will be required to complete a workbook with tasks linked to the previous and following visit. This will be completed during house time.
Mrs Renee McNaughton, PT Physical Education, was delighted to report that the first session had been a resounding success and the pupils involved had responded well to the champions. They listened intently to the athletes’ stories and experiences and were grateful to receive advice and information on how to succeed and overcome challenging situations.
Mrs McNaughton also wished to express her sincere gratitude not only to the champions for their time and commitment, but to the Clyde Valley sport ambassadors who assisted on the day. Aaron Miller, of S4, is worthy of special mention, having assisted Patrick Dawson on the judo mats. With Aaron’s help, Patrick was able to demonstrate some of his judo skills. Aaron is a Scottish judo champion himself.
