Sports taster

MONIFIETH children joined their counterparts from other regional schools for a sports taster session.

Primary five pupils from Seaview and Grange were among 175 pupils at the Monifieth Sports Club Event held in the David Lloyd gym at Ethiebeaton on Friday.

All pupils received a 15 – 20 minute taster session in lawn bowls, golf, Tae Kwon Do and football.

Afterwards coaches and representatives of Birkhill and Muirhead Bowling Club, Grange Golf Club, Dundee Football Club, Dundee Football Club and Tae Kwon Do instructor Gordon Linton passed out contact information and encouraged pupils to attend training.

Active Schools co-ordinator Jo Whaite said: “The festival was all about participation and fun within a competitive environment.

“Very kindly coaches and representatives from local clubs offered to help promote what is available to kids in the local community.

“This was very helpful as their support is always valued by both myself and the schools especially when strengthening school-club links.”
