Kids get sporty at Wishaw base

Wishaw Press - - SCHOOL NEWS -

Thorn­lie Pri­mary pupils got sporty when they re­cently took part in coach­ing ses­sions and a tour­na­ment or­gan­ised by stu­dents from New Col­lege La­nark­shire.

They had three weeks of train­ing be­fore tak­ing part in a foot­ball, rugby and hand­ball tour­na­ment at Wishaw Sports Cen­tre.

Kim­ber­ley Tot­ten, one of the stu­dent coaches, be­lieves the project was a great suc­cess.

She said: “The tour­na­ment went great. The aim of the project was to al­low the kids a deeper in­sight of sports that aren’t as com­mon in PE classes.

“It was a fan­tas­tic day and a com­plete suc­cess and the kids loved it.

“We had spon­sors in­clud­ing Chunky Mon­keys from Shotts who pro­vided us with wa­ter and Sains­bury’s who pro­vided us with fruit for all the kids.

“We would also like to thank Wishaw Sports Cen­tre for al­low­ing us to use their pitch free of charge.”
