Pupils from P7-S2 took part in a number of activities at tutor lead work stations. The activities included rowing, dodgeball, fitness, Soyang Do and wrestling. The pupils also all spent time learning the Yellow Belt Soyang Do form, culminating in a group display at the end of the morning.

Volunteers from Scottish Schools Rowing Association, Granite City Guerrillas Dodgeball Team, Aberdeen Wrestling Club, Aberdeen Soyang Do Club and the Sport Aberdeen Health and Wellness Team were on hand to ensure the Active Boys Day was a huge success.
