A brand new initiative that aims to get youngsters more healthy and active is set to launch in North Ayrshire next week.

Headteachers from primary schools across the area as well as partners, including Education Scotland and NHS Ayrshire and Arran, are due to meet on Wednesday, March 9 at St Anthony’s Primary in Saltcoats for the official launch of ‘Fit Fifteen’.

The whole idea behind the ‘Fit Fifteen’ programme is to ensure everyone, every day, everywhere is active by providing more opportunities for daily physical activity. And this initiative ensures that children and young people take part in at least 15 minutes of fitness each school day.
