Congratulations to S4 pupils Fraser Whitecross and Niamh Grant who have been appointed as the Young Ambassadors for Elgin Academy.
The Young Ambassadors programme is funded by the National Lottery and is a key element of SportScotland’s contribution to developing young people as leaders in sport. Each year, two pupils from secondary schools in Scotland are chosen as Young Ambassadors to promote sport, and motivate and inspire other young people to get involved in sport in their schools, clubs and local communities.
Fraser and Niamh will be responsible for influencing six key aspects of school sport:
- Extra-curricular sport provision
- Links to community sport opportunities
- Opportunities for competition
- Celebration of pupil achievements in sport
- Leadership opportunities for young people
- PE in schools
