Armadale Academy was delighted to welcome Commonwealth Gold medal winner Steve Frew to the school recently to start this year's Sky Sports Living for Sport project. This project aims to use sport to encourage pupils to perform in school while giving them the opportunity to organise and run a project and gain skills that will help them both in and out of school.
Steve impressed the group of S4 pupils selected for the project and a very lucky S1 gymnastics class with a world class demonstration of his skills.
