Did someone say free swimming lessons?!?
Yes please….sign me up!
P6S have been writing thank you letters to Saltire Swimming Co-coordinator Gillian Kerr at the University of Aberdeen.
We need to give a special BIG THANK YOU to Saltire Energy for their continued support.
This is a brilliant project, where every single person can learn to swim: The Saltire Sports for Schools Project was launched by Mike Loggie, CEO of Saltire Energy, in 2009, and is supported by Aberdeen Sports Village (ASV) and the University of Aberdeen. It is run annually at ASV. Saltire Energy has financially supported the scheme to date and funding is secured through to 2018.
It provides local school children with the opportunity to enjoy a wealth of sporting activities at Scotland’s premier sports facility. The project aims to enhance curricular physical education through access to ASV and specialist PE teaching. It gives pupils from St Peters, Riverbank, Sunnybank, Seaton and Hanover Street Primary Schools, the chance to participate in sports they may not otherwise have been exposed to including; athletics, dance, football, basketball, badminton, swimming, table tennis, hockey and gymnastics, as well as a range of inter-school tournaments.
Trevor our class dragon mascot has been enjoying her free swimming lessons too 🙂
