As part of our activities for our S4 group we are looking to encourage team building though sport. A programme of activities has been created by the Active schools co-ordinator, David Phee.
The small group of pupils took part in curling at Ayr Ice rink and have also taken part in mountain biking at Kyle Academy. They will also have a chance to try orienteering and boccia. The pupils gained confidence from learning new skills and taking part in team building activities.
