Hundreds of pupils have a spring in their step as they take part in Wake Up Shake Up sessions online.
Around 300 primary pupils have been jumping out of bed to take part in Wake Up Shake Up movement and dance sessions for the last month, helping to keep them active during the pandemic.
The scheme was established by High Life Highland to provide support to communities during the crisis.
The classes are delivered through Google Classroom by High Life Highland’s Amy Gallagher.
Robert Quigley, former Head Teacher of Milton of Leys Primary School helped establish the scheme through his work with The Highland Council’s digital development team.
He explained how the scheme came about.
He said: “After seeing a message by HLH’s CEO Steve Walsh on social media, it spurred me into thinking that we could support schools through the live streaming option on the digital learning site, Google Classroom. It’s our Highland-version of fitness coach Joe Wicks.”
Ms Gallagher spoke of the outstanding response she has seen from youngsters across the north.
She said: “We’ve been delighted with the response to the weekly ‘Wake up Shake Up’ sessions. We had 300 pupils join us for the first one, and that more than doubled the following week. The feedback we’ve had from young people taking part has been very enthusiastic and we are really pleased to be able to do something to help our communities during this unusual time.”
