Yoga at Strachur P.S.

We are very excited to start our yoga club at school after 3 teachers and 1 parent attended recent training, provided by Active Schools. We are even more excited to have our own yoga mats for the club – kindly donated by Kayci’s mum, Rebecca. Rebecca organised a raffle through her business, KMR Candles, and all proceeds went towards the purchase of the mats. Thank you Rebecca! Our yoga club will start on Thursday 23rd May after school and run for 6 weeks.
