COMMUNITY County step up to support schools

Ross County’s Community Department are working with Highland Schools to fill educational voids left in physical education. With cut backs in the provision of PE, the Staggies are teaming up with local businesses to provide 1 academic years’ worth of PE for schools who have had their Physical Education cut.


So far, the Staggies have teamed up with 7 businesses who will sponsor the community department to go and deliver physical education in schools in local areas. Ross County are targeting a total of 20 schools which they aim to be delivering at by the end of August. Businesses are pledging sponsorship to enable not only the coaches time but for equipment to be provided and left with the school as well.


On the programme, Community Manager, Gordon Duff said “Its something that we have addressed internally and feel we can support the schools to the best levels we can. This won’t be a case of going in and doing football with all of the kids we will be covering a range of activities in the curriculum and aim to help kids become healthier and more active through this.”


“We are looking to aid schools and assist teachers with physical activity. We would encourage as many local businesses as possible to support us financially to deliver to as many schools as possible and help local kids stay active here in the Highlands.”


Any businesses wishing to support this and help us deliver in local schools should contact Gordon on
