The programme teams up sports champions with schools to inspire pupils in setting their own goals and personal targets and aspiring to meet these. The Grammar School is proud to have been teamed up with champions who are in fact former pupils of the school – Donna and Fiona Robertson who are both Commonwealth Games medallists.
During their visit to the school, Donna and Fiona gave a demonstration of some judo and wrestling and then led the 29 S1 pupils in their group in warm up activities, sprints and reaction games.
Fiona and Donna spoke with the pupils about the importance of personal targets and aspiration. This was the first of a series of visits and workshops where pupils work with Fiona and Donna with the next session taking place after Easter by which time, pupils will have begun setting their own personal goals.
