The Active Schools Young Sports Stars of the Month have been revealed.

West Dunbartonshire Council nominate pupils who have excelled in physical activity and sport over the course of the school year to receive the title.

Leah Bell, Arran Graham, Chloe Gallagher, Chloe McGill, Cole McGuigan and Lucy McAleaney, all from Aitkenbar Primary School in Dumbarton, have been declared August’s sports stars.

Active Schools is a national network that provides high quality opportunities for children and young people to be more active, more often.

As well as the sport’s Stars of the Month, the Active Schools Volunteer of the Month has also been declared, with Shay Mitchell picking up the award.

Shay started his Active Schools journey in January 2018 supporting Mr Currie and the P7 football team at St Patrick’s Primary to gain experience coaching football as he is studying sports coaching at college.

Shay said: “I am thoroughly enjoying my volunteer experience, firstly at Patrick’s Primary then moving to St Peter’s Primary School.

“It has been great having the opportunity to coach the kids and see them enjoy themselves as well as develop their football skills.”

Emma McCluskey, Active Schools coordinator for St Peter’s Primary School, added: “Shay is a fantastic example of a volunteer wanting to give something back to those within his community.”
