Teachers and pupils from eight North Glasgow schools are celebrating a year of change and learning that puts PE and physical activity at the top of the priority list.
They’ve been taking part in On Our Marks, a project that has a vision to inspire the people of North Glasgow to be more physically active.
Children involved in the project are enjoying a range of positive outcomes. In February, many Primary 1 and 2 children struggled with tasks such as shuttle runs and catching a ball. Now they can complete multiple tasks without difficulty – and they’re having fun in the process.
Speaking about one pupil at Miltonbank PS, teacher Mrs Cochrane said: "On Our Marks has been very positive for her. Her gross motor skills have massively developed, resulting in increased confidence, being more settled and focused in class with a noticeable improvement in educational attainment. Perhaps the most significant and pleasing development is that she's interacting more with her peers at playtime".
