Holiday Club 2019:
We are starting to look at preparing towards our holiday club for summer 2019. This might seem like a long way away, but we do need to begin putting plans in place in order to make Space Academy 2019 as successful (and hopefully more so) than our previous holiday clubs. In expectation of even greater numbers this coming year, we are hoping to see an increase in the number of people on the team in order to allow us to welcome even more children! We realise that not everyone is comfortable working with children directly, therefore, if you feel that you could help at holiday club by being involved in the registration of the children or making up the snacks for each day or indeed, being a group leader/team helper then please do contact Ali (alasdair@claremontparishchurch.co.uk). If you have any questions about what any of these things would look like or what would be expected of you then please do get in touch.
