Over the school half-term holiday, we helped run a children’s holiday club in partnership with Westbourne Park Family Centre. Thirty-six primary school aged children attended the club, and a dozen teenagers assisted as young leaders.
Ofsted inspected the club to consider our provision for 5 year-olds which they rated as ‘Good’, but they particularly noted how happy the children all were and the very positive role models provided by the teenagers.
Throughout the club, we focused on healthy living and the importance of ‘friends, food, fitness, focus and faith’, illustrated by stories of Daniel from the bible.
The holiday club is a much valued provision for local families, and the children always enjoy a happy, healthy time!
