Mr Stuart Mackenzie

Mr Mackenzie of Albert Pye Primary School has been supporting their pupils from the beginning of lock-down, in school and at home. He's organised virtual sports challenges which has encouraged lots of pupils at home to get involved with the Albert Pye daily activity challenges.

"I thought that Mr Mackenzie motivated not only the kids who were at home but parents as well."

It is well known that keeping children active in school can help to improve their concentration. It is clear that Mr MacKenzie wanted to ensure physical activity continued to be a part of his pupils routine whilst learning from home and one parent even commented on the impact this had on her sons home schooling:

"The more my son was enjoying the sports activities, the easier it was for him to understand the home learning every week."

Mr Mackenzie, thank you for the daily challenges that have inspired, motivated and supported Albert Pye pupils and families during lockdown!
