Over the past five weeks, P5-P7 pupils from Balbardie Primary School have been visiting Xcite Bathgate to take part in or Skills Academy programme. This initiative, led by the Xcite Sports Development Team, aimed to introduce students to activities they might not have previously experienced, such as hockey, badminton, gymnastics, and athletics. Throughout the programme, each pupil had the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in their chosen sport with the guidance of our dedicated Xcite coaching team.


To celebrate the conclusion of the programme and in honour of this year’s #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek, last week the pupils invited their parents to a special showcase event held at Xcite Bathgate. During this event, they proudly demonstrated the skills and achievements they have gained over the past five weeks. 


The theme for #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek2024 was ‘movement,’ highlighting the importance of regular physical activity in maintaining and improving our mental health.


Congratulations to everyone that took part in the event – it was a fantastic afternoon, full of talent.
