School cluster heats will take place as part of Active Games – Games Legacy for Dumfries & Galloway prior to the summer break. The heats took place as the Olympic Torch Relay passed through the region and the finals will be held on 22 September. Included in the opening ceremony will be choreographed dance routines and pipe bands leading the team march around the stadium.
There will also be a region wide design competition for a new logo that will identify with the Active Games in Dumfries & Galloway. The winner will have the honour of carrying the final leg of the Active Games Torch Procession at the opening ceremony of the event.
Active Games - Games Legacy for Dumfries & Galloway is part of the Games for Scotland programme.
