Active Schools and Community Sport

Dumfries and Galloway currently have a team of Active Schools and Community Sport Officers to cover all Primary and Secondary Schools in the region. Each Officer works in partnership with a cluster of schools and the wider community to draw together local resources to increase physical activity levels for children and young people. By working with community organisations, sports clubs and schools Active Schools can give children the tools, motivation, and opportunities to be more active throughout their school years and into adulthood. In the Machars area, your Active Schools and Community Sport Officers are: Ann Ferguson and Alison Adams.

 Ann Ferguson represents Active Schools on the Machars Community Sport Hub steering group and is building partnership opportunities between the participating clubs and school community.
