Over Easter, Summer and the October holidays the Active Schools team look to support FREE sporting activity for pupils living in Dundee. We offer one day to weeklong programmes where children can attend and experience a variety of activities such as mountain biking, basketball, athletics, gymnastics, dance and much more.
Over the holidays we work alongside our partners to have lots of sports on offer. We rely on volunteers from our local clubs to share their knowledge and skills with us to create an intense and exciting holiday programme. We also allow our senior pupils from high schools across Dundee and students from the local Universities and Colleges to get involved and gain coaching experience. Many of our volunteers then progress onto careers within the sporting industry.
Pupils that attend any of our programmes are also supported with free meals through Dundee Bairns. This is a great organisation that allows our participants to access in some cases breakfast, lunch and a snack.
Information about the holiday programmes is advertised through our website, in school and on social media. Make sure to sign up online to make sure your child has a confirmed space.
