On Saturday 25th February, the Marr Sports Leaders were successful in securing £1000 to run their own community project at the ‘Troon Locality Decides’ Participatory Budget Event. Three members of the class, Euan Rhodes, Eilidh McDonald and Brooke Buchanan presented their Marr Summer Sports Camp project idea to a packed Walker Hall. Strictly limited to a two-minute slot (enforced by the 30-seconds-to-go buzzer), they produced an informative and dynamic performance, delivered with confidence and eloquence. The investors, local community and fellow presenters all responded with praise, encouragement and excitement for the project. The Marr Summer Sports Camp will offer all prospective Marr students from P6&7 the opportunity of a 4-day sports camp (10am-2pm) with the main aim of supporting a smooth transition into S1 at Marr College. A Marr College summer camp for students, led by students. Now they have secured the funding, major planning is underway…so….please watch this space for more information to follow on what will be a very exciting project. Congratulations to the Sports Leaders.
