"To mark the end of their six years in Millburn Academy, the school held a special event for sixth year students.
“Jammin Fitness provided a fantastic "alternative" in-service day recently for the staffs of King's Meadow Primary School and Yester Primary School. We were introduced to a range of skills and techniques that were of real practical use in getting our children to be active participants in "street dance." A super alternative to "traditional" PE that allowed even the creaky oldsters amongst us to see the benefits that this kind of approach could have in terms of presenting and supporting an exciting physical activity for children.”
Donald McGillivray, Head Teacher, King's Meadow Primary School, East Lothian
"Andy is an inspirational presenter who motivated all teaching and support staff through the 'Fit to Lead ' course. It encouraged staff to reflect on their own health and well-being and develop a more positive approach in work and in life. Staff requested further in-service for themselves and for pupils from Andy and the Street Jammin team and everyone rated the presentation very highly - all excellents and very goods!”
Linda Simpson, Head Teacher Springfield Primary, Linlithgow
“The staff at St Teresa’s Primary thoroughly enjoyed the Fit to Lead workshop and were impressed with the strategies outlined. It’s been voted the best in-service EVER! We were all full of energy and ready to salsa out to the lines on Thursday morning! - FANTASTIC!”
