Strone Primary School signed up for the Argyll and Bute Young Leaders Award delivered by Andy Trull the Active Schools Co-ordinator. 10 pupils have just successfully completed the training. After looking at the qualities that a Young Leader should have the pupils looked in more detail about how to organise activity sessions and manage situations. They quickly learnt how to adapt activities and even to invent new games.
After leading some games with their peers, the final test was to run an activity session for the P1-P3’s. This ran very smoothly and the younger children had a great time taking part in all the new games. The new Young Leaders showed a confident and mature approach during the training sessions. We hope to see them helping to organise playground sessions in the near future.
