MSP highlights sporting achievements of local schools

Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron has highlighted the achievements of schools in Argyll and Bute which have received sportscotland School Sport Awards.

Mr Cameron submitted a motion to the Scottish Parliament today (15/10/2019) in which he praised the efforts of students and staff for successfully participating in the sportscotland initiative.

He said: “I am delighted that so many schools took part in the scheme. Engaging in sport can make a very positive contribution to a young person’s health and welfare.

“And sport can also give young people the invaluable experience of working, and achieving,  as part of a team. These life skills will hold them in very good stead for the rest of their lives.

“My congratulations go to everyone who has participated, or supported, these activities. I very much hope they continue to go from strength to strength.”
