A number of our Young Sports Leaders and Sports Ambassadors have been profiled for the work they undertake with some of our cluster primary schools.
Niamh Gavin (S6) featured on the Twitter take over recently for her work coaching football with some of the cluster. Niamh has volunteered with the cluster for the last two years delivering football sessions to primary pupils. Such is Niamh’s success that she has now been taken on as a coach by AM Soccer.
Kenny MacIver (S5) was in the spotlight for his work with St Columbas Roman Catholic Primary School. Kenny has helped to grow interest in basketball within the school with more pupils participating in the sport.
Finally, Fife Active Schools promoted the work of Molly Wilson (S5) yesterday. Molly, one of our Sports Ambassadors, helped to organise and run the benchball tournament for P1-P3 pupils at Ladybank primary School.
Well done to Niamh, Kenny and Molly for all of their achievements and ‘thank you’ for dedicating time to create opportunities for primary pupils to participate in sport.
Congratulations to our S3 netball team who held onto a 4-3 lead at half-time to eventually win 7-6 in the Fife Plate Final. It was a very close game with the girls demonstrating the skills that they have developed in the school to deal with the pressure a very intense match.
