Pulteneytown People’s Project Summer School

7th July 2006

Pulteneytown People’s Project Summer School will be running for three weeks from the 3rd – 21st of July at Wick High School from 9.00am – 5.00pm . The Summer School is open to children aged 5 – 14 years and offers affordable child care for working parents as well as fun filled days for any children who are looking for activities during the summer holidays.

Activities include a football tournament, pool competitions, skateboarding sessions, African drumming, circus skills, rugby, dance workshops, arts and crafts and many more. Geordie Splash spray painting workshops will take place on Monday afternoon 3rd and Tuesday morning 4th July. These workshops are delivered working in partnership with Casper Club, Castletown.

They have outings arranged around Caithness to Camster Cairns, Dunnet Forrest, a visit to Casper Club Castletown and an outing to Treats Club, Thurso, for the annual Out of School Clubs It’s a Knockout competition.

The summer school finishes on the 21st July with a full fun day trip to the Landmark activity centre at Carrbridge. There is an extra 50p charge for this outing.

Amalie Cormack MAASK team leader says that this is the fourth year of running our summer school and that all the kids have a great time meeting up with their friends as well as making new friends and learning new activities. In the past we have children attend from outlying areas as well as within the town.

The summer school costs £6.50 for a full day and £4.00 for a half day session. This cost includes all outings and a snack morning and afternoon but children must provide their own packed lunch.
