Summer Play Scheme Begins

Today seen the start of the kids 4 week + residential holiday to Ratho

100_2498Registration started this morning with 43 excited kids signing on. Planning a 4 week kid’s holiday is no easy task, but one that our manager Peter Airlie and the Council’s Alan Hosey have become expert at through the years.  After initially choosing the activities, they have to do a full risk assessment, this along with booking the supervision, transport and food they have to check the finances at each step. A full weather forecast is studied to decide if the activities are outdoors or indoors.

100_2499If the weather forecasts do not match up to expectations the programme is flexible enough to cater for this.100_2497

  Today is the first day and is a day of their programme and consists of a day at the Centre getting to know the rules of behaviour that is both acceptable and not, and the consequences of bad behaviour during the period.  They also use this fun day to get to know each other.
