Active Schools Coordinator
St Machar ASG
Name: Kim McRobbie
Mobile: 07825 228173
Office: St Machar Academy, PE Dept.
Sport: I like to challenge myself and try every sport at least once. My main interests are playing netball and walking football!
Other Activities: I enjoy volunteering as a football coach with Aberdeen FC Ladies. This has increased my confidence and skill base and given me the opportunity to see many different parts of Scotland. To relax, I can often be found exploring the beautiful walks and parks in and around Aberdeen – especially on a sunny day!
Career: After graduating from Robert Gordon University in 2013, I worked with local schools, clubs and organisations to increase football opportunities for girls within the area. Promoting fun based sessions and running weekly festivals, allowed me to see first-hand the benefits that children get from participating in sport. This gave me the desire to work with Active Schools, helping make sport more accessible to all.
Statement: Recently becoming the Active Schools Coordinator for the St Machar ASG has highlighted the positive sense of community within the area. I am excited to work with all 7 Primary Schools, St Machar Academy and local community groups to continue supporting and growing the activities on offer. My main goal is to work with volunteers, schools, parents and children to offer a wide range of activities, helping many children and young people become more active, more often!
Volunteering: Help me achieve this goal by volunteering with one of our exciting activities! Ongoing training and support is provided. Aged 12-25? Why not get rewarded by signing up to the Saltire Award Scheme!
To keep up to date with the activities on offer, like the ‘Active Schools St Machar’ Facebook page. Sessions will also be promoted within each school.
I look forward to meeting and working with you all throughout the year.
