School Holiday Programme
The school holidays can be a long, difficult time for children living in overcrowded temporary accommodation if they have no prospect of a trip away, with so little space at home to play.
In August 2017, we ran our first Summer Programme for members of our Kids Club and Homework Club and their parents. Themed 'Explore London', we spent a fortnight out and about each day in the capital. Our children learned how to make rockets at the Science Museum and what it means to be an architect at the Sir John Soane's Museum. They negotiated the Tumbling Bay at the Olympic Park and flew kites in Kensington Gardens. They made friends with the animals at Mudshute City Farm before discovering how they evolved at the Horniman Museum. And they spent a day away from the bustle of the city on the beach at Margate.
'Explore London' was a trial for a series of school holiday programmes we hope to roll out across the academic year - watch this space for further news.
