ACTIVITIES’ DAY Grammar girls get sports active
Fitness workshop and dance experience
Youngsters at Hamilton Grammar School participated in a range of workshops as part of Active Girls’ Day last Friday.
The event took place as part of Scottish Women and Girls in Sport Week.
Co-ordinated by the Scottish Government, it aims to increase participation in sport and physical activity among women and girls.
A school spokeswoman said: “We would like to make a special thanks to Fiona Robertson – a Commonwealth athlete – for leading our girls through a fantastic fitness workshop.
“Our dance leaders, Caroline and Jodie, from West College Scotland also delivered an incredible dance experience for our pupils.
“Thank you also to South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture for providing a free fitness pass to all pupils who took part.
“As a community, we are eager to enhance the number opportunities for girls and young women in PE, sport and physical activity.”
Active Girls’ Day is a chance to celebrate all the amazing work that goes on across the country.
Events are held in schools across Scotland and 120 second-year girls at Hamilton Grammar participated in netball, dance, fitness, a body image workshop workshop.
