Looking to get your kids cycle confident? Then book them into one of our summer bikeability camps where they will learn all the skills necessary to cycle confidently and competently on the road.

Over the three days your children will trained to level 2 of bikeability by Cycling Scotland trained tutors. The aim of the camp is to learn a valuable life skill and to have fun doing so.

The camps will run from 10.00 – 15.30 and will be held on the following days:

10 - 12 July 2018 at Bells Sports Centre, Perth

18 - 20 July 2018 at Strathearn Community Campus, Crieff

Please ensure your child is able to ride a bicycle as this is a compressed course. Bicycles and helmets can be provided if your child does not have access to bicycle.

The course will be limited to a maximum of 16 children and open to those aged 8 – 12.

We will also have Dr Bike to give your child’s bike a health check.

You can book at www.eventbrite.co.uk or contact the local bikeability co-ordinator at: hlees@pkc.gov.uk/01738475173 for further information.





‘The Courier’ sales team have been receiving a few phone calls from Pitlochry residents telling them that the local paper shop has stopped doing home news deliveries.  Obviously some of these people are elderly, some housebound and rely on getting their paper delivered. The school is happy to start a newspaper delivery service for 'The Courier' but we cannot do this until we get paperboys/girls.  Pupils must be over 13 years old and good at getting up early! 


The papers would come directly from us & delivered to the deliverers house [normally a box is left in garden]. Papers would be delivered to the school by 7am giving them plenty of time to be delivered pre-school. Paperboys/girls are paid weekly in arrears and receive 23% of the cover price of 'The Courier' so it is dependent on number of copies that are delivered with a minimum amount of £12 being paid each week. The school would make an appointment with both the deliverer & parent to discuss and explain the whole procedure.

Diverse CiTay Festival brings something for everyone


Saturday 23 June 2018 will see Perth celebrating the Year of Young People 2018 (YOYP2018) in spectacular style with a day-long event putting young people aged eight to 26 in the spotlight. The Diverse CiTay Festival is supported by the Year of Young People 2018 event fund, managed by Event Scotland, part of Visit Scotland's Event Directorate. The day will highlight the best of Perth and Kinross, with an exciting mix of music, theatre, art, culture, sport, health and wellbeing as well as highlighting young entrepreneurs between 12.30pm and 10pm at various locations around the city centre. Diverse CiTay has been co-produced by local young people with support from local bodies and organisations. In 2018, Scotland puts its young people in the spotlight, celebrating their talents, contributions and creating new opportunities for them to shine. The Year of Young People 2018 is a year-long programme of events and activities that will give young people in Scotland the opportunity to show the world what they are made of. In Perth Diverse CiTay will be a celebration of Perth and Kinross's young residents and visitors, highlighting the importance of young people to the future of our city, our region and our economy. The festival kicks off at 12.30pm with a carnival parade with a colourful, vibrant display of floats, vehicles, dance troupes and bands will head from the South Inch along Tay Street to the North Inch park, where the North Inch Carnival will run from 1pm to 4.30pm, with a vibrant mix of performers, entertainment and activities. The Music Stage at the Carnival will be hosted by dance music giant Ministry of Sound, with sets from the House & Garage Orchestra, as seen on 1Xtra's Live Lounge, and very special guests Jack Maynard and Karen Harding. Also appearing on the Music Stage will be Dundee pop band Be Charlotte and Scottish singer-songwriter Mikey. Alongside this, there will be plenty of other things to enjoy including a funfair, inflatables, a bike stunt team, and much more. If keeping healthy and active is more your thing, then the Perth College UHI Sports, Healthy & Wellbeing villages are for you! A range of sports from volleyball to archery, as well as a chill-out area and access to wellbeing activities and health advice, such as relaxation and meditation, and smoking cessation information, will be on offer. Just a short walk away, between 5pm and 10pm, the Mill Street Youth Market will give young creators and business operators an opportunity to demonstrate their entrepreneurial spirit and creativity, offering a range of goods and services for sale, accompanied by food stalls, busking musicians, and a climbing wall. Local young musicians and bands will be featured on the Music Stage in the Horsecross plaza, with performances from Parliamo, Stop the Rain, Saharatheband and singer-songwriter Mikey, and DJ sets from Wize. Nearby Perth Museum and Art Gallery will feature exhibitions created by local young people, focussing on the centenary of the end of World War One, and on self-image and identity. The exhibitions are free to attend and open from 10am to 5pm. Perthshire Creates' Summer Contemporary Design Market will also be held on the same day, in the Civic Hall at 2 High Street, Perth, presenting the best of locally produced arts and crafts between 10am and 4.30pm. At the other end of Mill Street, a Youth Takeover of Perth Theatre will see a diverse range of free workshops, activities and events between 10am and 9.30pm. Fancy finding out more about theatre and stagecraft, or trying your hand at music, crafts or rapping and DJ skills? There's lots on offer, and the Takeover ends with an under 18's After Party, complete with silent disco and local bands performing.
