Calling All Budding Sports Leaders!

Message from Parent Council

There was a suggestion from parents in attendance at tonight’s Parent Council meeting that it would be good to have some regular sports/athletics training for kids at the school to prepare them for local sporting events throughout the year ie; Cross country, Bailey Cup, Interschool sports etc
 
This would require a regular commitment from parents to run these sessions, if this is something you would be interested in please let us know. We are planning to set up a sports sub-meeting to discuss this and will ask along the School Sports Co-ordinator who can share their guidance and set up coaching course if/when required. 
 
Please let us know if you would be interested in attending this sports sub meeting to discuss a way forward by emailing Mrs Mackay aileen.mackay@highland.gov.uk

Message from David Shaw, Active Sschools Coordinator for our area

We are on the lookout for some new/returning volunteers to get involved with Active Schools in Culloden.
Sessions can be centralised to include all pupils or targeted for individual schools/classes.

Sessions can also be organised to fit in around your schedule and can be worked on a rota basis, so you don’t have to be there every week.

If you or someone you know is interested in leading or assisting at sessions then please get in touch!  We are happy to offer sessions for any sport and can provide training/new equipment for clubs that can run longer term.

You don’t need to be an expert coach or have previous experience, just be enthusiastic and willing to get involved for an hour a week.

Full support will be given to all volunteers.

While staff can and do provide extra curricular clubs there is more expectation for us to do professional learning after school called ‘twilights’ and also with P1-3 parents meeting staff regularly time is shortened. WE’re all happy to help and work together. You’d also get a full ‘Volunteer at Smithton’ induction by me. Please do think about this commitment – working with the children and young people is the best tonic for your day!
