“The Russell Anderson Development School is making a difference in children’s lives; in the lives of all the pupils they work with in Riverbank and across the St Machar ASG schools. Football coaching is the over-arching focus used by the coaches to encompass their holistic approach in promoting and supporting the positive effect exercise has on pupil’s mental, physical and social well-being.
The Development School is successfully building children’s self-esteem, motivation, resilience, respect for themselves and others, for building a positive attitude to healthy eating choices and for promoting a positive attitude to fitness and teamwork. The coaches, who have worked for a number of years with the pupils of Riverbank School, have built up a fabulous relationship with pupils, teachers and parents. Their work is highly valued; they show great dedication and they make learning activities fun!
The Development School is successfully building children’s self-esteem, motivation, resilience, respect for themselves and others.
The Russell Anderson Development School are shaping the values and attitudes towards a healthier lifestyle for our children now, children who will be the parents of tomorrow!
