Higher PE BBC Academy Trip



Hundreds of young people including St Lukes higher P.E. pupils, accompanied by Mr MacInnes, were  invited to take part in an inspirational sporting event in the week the BBC Sports Personality of the Year rolls into Glasgow.

Sports stars, including Commonwealth Games gold medallists Euan Burton, Charlie Flynn and Kimberley and Louise Renicks, hosted motivational question and answer sessions at The Active Academy at the city’s Emirates Arena.

Experts and coaches led taster sessions of sports and activities in the event, which took place from 10-12 December and was ran as part of the BBC’s UK-wide initiative Get Inspired, to encourage participation in sport. 

It is being run in conjunction with Glasgow Life, who will provide Glasgow Sport staff and volunteers to help run the programme of activities planned by Get Inspired and BBC Scotland.

Using the venue’s athletics tracks, velodrome and one of the sports halls, the Academy will ran try-out sessions for a wide range of activities from football and rugby to street dance, boccia and wrestling.  The pupils had a fantastic time at the event and learnt some valuable skills! Including how to ride a bike properly!!!
