Club Activity Day @ McLaren HS
On Thursday 2nd April Mclaren High School hosted the first ever Club Day. The purpose of the day was to offer a wide variety of different sports to all pupils from S1 – S3 in Mclaren High school with the focus being on encouraging pupils to take part a sport that was less familiar to them. With many of the sports and activities being based outside, the weather was on our side as the sun shone for what proved to be the warmest day of the year so far. Mclaren Rugby FC, Stirling Knights (Basketball), Callander Cricket Club, Trossachs Tigers (Hockey), Skiddadle (Outdoor Events), Callander Golf Club, Cambusbaron Karate Club and Mclaren Leisure (Climbing) were the clubs that came together to make the day a memorable one for pupils. The pupils were put through their paces by the club coaches through a number of skills based drills that allowed them to practise the fundamental skills of their sport. Any talented or interested pupils were sign posted to the club training session to allow them to take the sport further.
The day was a resounding success due to the dedication and enthusiasm of the club coaches that came in and gave up their time to share their passion with the young people of Mclaren High. A special mention must also go to Marc Fleming, who was open to the idea and stopped the academic timetable to allow the day to happen, and Ashley Montgomery who had a massive hand in organising the day. We are hopeful that this day will become a regular fixture in the calendar at Mclaren High School.
