At Preston Street we have a wide range of after school clubs and activities for all age ranges.
Our clubs are run by a mixture of:
- School staff;
- Parent volunteers;
- Visiting coaches / instructors, including ‘Active Schools’ coaches.
A booking form and timetable for April – June 2018 was issued to all pupils on Tuesday 17th April. You can download a copy of the form and timetable below:
Alternatively, you can ask at the office for a paper copy of the form and timetable.
Many of our clubs are free of charge, including our football, running, reading, maths and languages clubs. There is a small charge for some clubs, to cover costs of equipment and coaches etc. However financial assistance is always available – please contact Mrs Allan if you wish to discuss this in confidence.
Thanks to Fiona Watson from our Parent Council and Eliot Ambrose, our Active Schools Coordinator, for working closely with the school to ensure we are able to offer a range of high quality activities to all pupils.
Thanks also to Boroughmuir Blaze for their support in providing fantastic basketball opportunities, both at school and at the Crags Sports Centre. This session, we run a P4-7 basketball club at Preston Street on a Monday afternoon, led by a visiting coach; and a P1-3 club at the Crags on a Thursday afternoon. We also have a special P4-7 girls’ section at the Crags on Wednesdays. There is also a weekly P5-7 fun tournament at the Crags on Friday afternoons, from 2 – 3:30pm – all pupils are welcome to attend.
This session, we are running three football teams, as listed below. If your child is interested in joining, please contact email@example.com or ask at the school office. Participation in football is free with all equipment provided by the school.
There is a P4-5 team which is coached by one of our parents, Stavros Bourmpoulas. Games usually take place on Saturday mornings from 9:30 – 10:30, with players asked to arrive for 9am.
The P6-7 team is coached by one of our former pupils, James Kerr. Games usually take place on Saturday mornings from 10:30 – 11:30, with players asked to arrive for 9:45am.
P4-7 girls football
Our girls’ section meet at the Meadows tennis courts at 9:30am on Saturday mornings for training and / or games. The team is currently coached by Keith Sutton and Gael Cochrane, two of our parents.
Girls are free either to join the dedicated girls’ section, or the main P4-5 / P6-7 teams.
We are always looking for parents to help out with football at all age groups – either by holding training through the week or helping with games at the weekend. If you would be interested in helping out, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch. We are particularly looking for someone to take our current P3 year group on Saturday mornings.
