Active Schools Web Content

Active Schools Coordinators are present in all Fife Schools developing and supporting the delivery of quality sporting opportunities for children and young people. Active Schools aims to provide more and higher quality opportunities to take part in sport and physical activity before school, during lunch time and after school, whilst developing effective pathways between schools and sports clubs in the local community.

Viewforth HS & Active Schools work in partnership to deliver leadership programmes where pupils can support the development of sport and physical activity within their school whilst gaining valuable experiences and qualifications. We aim to showcase and celebrate participation and success in sport and inspire and encourage others to remain or become involved.

The Active Schools Coordinator at Viewforth HS is Ronan Capon. Please make contact with Ronan should you require information on the schools extra-curricular programme you child is likely to be involved in, to ask any questions about leadership in the school and to enquire about any volunteering opportunities which may exist.
