That’s it – another term that has gone by in a flash, as we roll in to our 2024 Easter holidays! It has been a fast, furious and, as always, fun, couple of months! The Active Schools team has been non-stop from the word ‘go’ in January and is very much looking forward to a couple of weeks rest before we enter the final term of the year! As always, our newsletter will focus on the monthly SportScotland themes of the past three months; this time including: Being Active, Try Something New and Women and Girls in Sport. Read on to find out what has been keeping us so busy since the New Year!

Our run down for this term focuses on the SportScotland themes of Inclusion, Celebrating Sport and A Year in Sport.
