Crown Primary School in Inverness became the first education establishment to receive an official Game On Scotland plaque for their innovative learning initiatives using the Commonwealth Games as a context.

Shona Robison, Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport presented the award to the school in a special ceremony.

The school has embraced the Games as an exciting opportunity to deepen all of their learners’ understanding of what it means to be global citizens and the values of fairness and justice as well as a wide range of practical skills, from reporting to enterprise. The school also has an active sports culture that promotes health and wellbeing.Crown Primary School

P7 pupils shared with the Minister how Scotland’s Games are inspiring their learning, including:

  • displays on Values work
  • Athletes’ Village Art Competition entries
  • storytelling from countries around the Commonwealth and
  • Citizenship group work including a class world map tracking the Queen’s Baton Relay

Schools in Scotland, and across the Commonwealth, are encouraged to upload their own Game On Challenge at www.gameonscotland.org - by doing so they will be eligible for a plaque of their own, as well as a range of other exciting benefits and rewards.
