Holiday Club

 

About Us


We run a Holiday Club during the school holidays.  Depending on the need, a decision will then be made on which days the club will be open for that particular holiday period.  It is important for parents to return Holiday Club requests by the stated date or they may find that the club has been closed due to insufficient interest.  Parents are informed of any closure dates two weeks prior to the commencement of Holiday Club.
