Did you Sport your Trainers and get involved in the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games on 12th March? If you didn’t take part though it isn’t too late you still can by registering in the Sport Your Trainers 2012 Glow Group and letting us know how you will continue to take part.
We challenged you as a school to try and reach a partner country by Commonwealth Day on the 12th March of this year and show your support for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games by getting involved in this year’s Sport your Trainers campaign. You were free to choose what country you wished to partner from the Official List of Partners and then you needed to find out how far away they were from your school!
We now want to know what you did or are hoping to do as we will be keeping the challenge going!
You can take part by walking, jogging, rowing, cycling, and spinning or even skipping, the choice is yours and all activities count, so get creative!
Last year 820,000 people across Scotland pledged their support, and we want 2012 to be even bigger! By taking part in this fun challenge we’ll all be doing our bit to support the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Official Glasgow 2014 shoelaces are up for grabs for all schools that take part so you just need to sign up below to let us know that you are taking part!!
So what are you waiting for, get active!More

Highlands Council, in partnership with Education Scotland, are hosting a Games Legacy conference in Inverness on the 29th May. It will be a fantastic opportunity for schools across Scotland to get together to hear and share good practice in the area of Games Legacy.
We are at the point of putting together our programme for the day and would like to extend an invitation out to schools or cluster groups who feel they would like to present their work. We are particularly interested in those establishments who have managed to use the Games Legacy as a rich context for learning right across the curriculum and who feel ready and able to share this to help develop capacity amongst practitioners.
If you feel this is you, or sounds like a school or cluster you currently work with, then please get in touch with me to discuss the opportunity further. We look forward to working with you!More
