Peterhead Academy – Widening The Pitch

Jul 2, 2024

Health and Wellbeing Community Coach Danny Strachan, sponsored by Buchan Offshore Wind Ltd was delighted to support the Peterhead Academy Widening the Pitch literacy project.

Peterhead academy S1 and S2 pupils visited Peterhead Football Club and received a fascinating tour around Balmoor Stadium by Nat Porter and Danny, learning lots about the clubs history, and how the club runs.

Danny was then interviewed by the pupils, who asked probing questions and the challenge now for the pupils is to turn this into a newspaper piece, worthy of the Buchan Observer.

“Widening the Pitch” is a literacy programme, where an interest in football will be used as a platform to support some of our young people to develop their literacy skills.
