This is an invaluable service, that should be saved. My kids have benefited from the Active Schools programme. Myself and many other parents have received training and support through Active Schools to enable us to teach sports such as netball, badminton, tennis, junior jog Scotland and many more activities to many children. This service should not be cut.
