The Primary 5 outdoor learning group visited Holyrood Park on Friday to play with the Ultraweb. They had to problem solve each team member passing through a different hole which took considerable planning, experimenting and adjusting. They then had to practise their technique to achieve the fastest possible time. Taking the web down at the end (without ending up in a big tangle) proved to be just as challenging!
I wanted to congratulate and celebrate the wonderful Royal Mile Pupil Councillors!
In an exceptional year I have had the honourof working with these great people. They found great ways to raise money for good causes and raise a smile from everyone!
A few deputies in today’s picture but we didn’t forget anyone – Mia, Mahnoor, Hasan, Leila, Olivia, Louie, Aaron, Theodora, Lynda, Fraser, Felix and Matthew!
We want to support everybody to get active and enjoy their summer so we have identified several opportunities within our summer sports coaching programmes that we would like to offer at no cost to children from families living on low incomes.
- Opportunities for coached activities for children in Swimming, Tennis and Gymnastics
- Opportunities for fun physical activity sessions that the whole family can take part in together.
Families who are eligible for the programme include children who receive school uniform and meal grants, care experienced children, young carers, children whose families are in receipt of Universal Credit and children supported by a child’s plan.
We are happy for this information to be shared widely with all families, giving those who are eligible the opportunity to self-select.
