Stewart helps develop the skills of a new group of children in both track and field events every year. He has introduced new drills and exercises this year which have promoted their skills and abilities. He has helped support and guide three children from High School who returned from last year's squad to help out with this year's training.
Stewart has been an invaluable help to Inverkip Primary; his dedication has been unwavering and without him the children would not have been able to achieve the amount of success that they over the last two decades. Obviously our squad changes every year but he has been able to gain the trust of each new group of children. They look forward to him coming in and enjoy the sessions that he helps manage. Stewart's presence and abilities allows us to run with an increased number of children; giving more the opportunity than I'd be able to cope with on my own. It also enables us to split our squad for outdoor and indoor training (the only real running area for our athletes is outside). Personally, I didn't know Stewart before he started to volunteer, I enjoy his company and we have become friends outwith the school environment. He cares about the children and wants to give them the opportunity to develop and achieve as much success as they can.
