PARENTS AND CARERS of primary age children are being sent a booklet full of ideas for children’s activities and out of school facilities available during the school summer holidays.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s School’s Out 2010 booklet will be delivered to every primary school child in the East Riding from Monday, 5th July 2010.
The booklet includes activities and information from leisure centres, sports development, Families Information Service Hub (FISH), extended services, children’s centres and the voluntary and community sector.
Lesley Gilson, FISH manager said:
The aim of Schools Out is to provide parents and carers with detailed and accurate information to help them book activities and childcare well in advance of the summer holidays. There are a huge range of courses and activities on offer from dancing and football to more unusual activities like polo and gliding.”
Extra support is also available for parents and carers of disabled children in booking places for activities, with a co-ordinator contacting a parent or carer about their child’s needs and making the necessary arrangements. Requests must be made at least four working days in advance of the activity.
Copies of School’s Out 2010 will also be available from leisure centres, customer service centres and libraries or alternatively ring FISH (Families Information Service Hub) on (01482) 396469.
Activities can also be viewed and booked on-line by visiting: www.fish.eastriding.gov.uk or via the East Riding website’s “what’s on” section at http://events.eastriding.gov.uk, simply select the “School’s Out 2010 brochure” which will be available from Monday, 5th July2010.
