The School Green Gym Project was delivered by The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) and took place between August 2021 and July 2023.

The project provided an alternative approach to exercise for school pupils across East Ayrshire.

Young people and their teachers were encouraged to take part in a programme of outdoor activities linked to the environment and practical conservation activities.

Despite a global pandemic, TCV worked in partnership with nine schools and their teaching staff to deliver 101 sessions, engaging with 302 pupils. 

The sessions provided teachers with increased knowledge and confidence to deliver outdoor sessions themselves for the future.

All of the CCLP team would like to say a massive THANK YOU to TCV staff Laura, Ali and Rosie for all their hard work on the project.

We would make you a card but there's no beating this one from the pupils!
