Thanks to money secured earlier this year from the Healthy Islands Fund, our five pupils were given the opportunity to take part in Mountain Biking sessions. Our initial sessions last week were based within the school grounds where the children went through all the skills completing Cycling Scotland’s Level 3 Go Mountain Biking Award (including our nursery pupil being the youngest to ever take part in this award!). The pupils will all have the opportunity to use their skills in a couple of weeks time when we have two more sessions planned in which they will be able to put the skills they have learnt into practise around some of the local trails in Raasay. The award money will also give the pupils the opportunity to travel to Fort William with a two night stay at Glenfinnan. They will then have a morning biking lesson on the Wolf Tracks at Fort William before having the opportunity to spend the afternoon watching the World Championships.
