Primary three pupils from St Kessog’s and Balloch Primary schools are having a ball every week burning off tonnes of energy in a new session run by Active Schools.

Mini Movers takes place after school on Tuesdays and brings kids from both schools together for an hour of fun and activity.

Following a warm up, the block gives the children the chance to get moving through fun activities and drills, including playground games such as relay races and tig.

Active Schools coordinator Emma McCluskey told the Reporter: “Mini Movers is good because it is quite a full club with about 20 attending every week which is brilliant.

“It is a new club, but it’s going well. There is a good atmosphere and the kids are loving the sessions.

“They all really enjoy it and as long as they are having fun and moving that is the main thing.”

Last week, the young movers and shakers who attend the class were led by West Dunbartonshire Leisure coach Jordan Dick, who was assisted by a new parent volunteer who has been helping out with the sessions.

Active Schools coordinates and supports a range of sport and activity sessions before, during and after school.

Now as they get ready to expand their programme further they are on the lookout for more volunteers and are calling on more parents and members of the community to get involved, such as parents helping out at Mini Movers.

The opportunity is available to anyone over 12, who can give just an hour a week, whether on a short-term or long-term basis.
