Summer fun for schools
9:00am Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
THE Discovery Federation schools held a summer holiday activity camp with a whole host of activities at Knights Enham Junior School last week.
Funding for the week came from various sources including Aster Communities, Big Lottery, Councillor Ward Budgets and Simply Health.
Refreshments were provided courtesy of Sainsbury superstore (Andover).
Activities throughout the week, which were provided by Lions in the Community, included art, dancing, football, a climbing wall, and various other outdoor activities.
Children from all of the Discovery Federation schools aged from five to 11 years old were able to take advantage of the activities on offer which took place every day from 10am until 3pm.
The Mayor of Test Valley Cllr Janet Whiteley and Sir George Young MP visited the school on the Friday to see what was on offer for the children.
Sir George said: “I thinkit is important to use school facilities in the school holidays when otherwise they would tend to remain unused.
“It gives the parents a breakas they need a holiday too during the week, and children are in safe hands.
“It’s marvellous that it’s being supported, and the kids look forward to it as well as the parents, and they enjoy it.”
