James Gillespie’s High School would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Active Schools Coordinator, Tom Scott, who joined us from Balerno in Easter.

Tom Scott (682x800)

I hope you’ve been enjoying the free taster sessions during the last fortnight. We’ve been impressed with the number of pupils who’ve attended so far. What an amazing start! Recreational swimming and badminton are also due to start on 26th September and 22nd September respectively. I know many pupils have been looking forward to these.

You’re now invited to join activities through our school sports membership scheme. Please follow the instructions on this letter. Sign ups are now online via the www.joininedinburgh.org website.” – Tom
