‘Shine’ - After School Kids Club
‘Shine’ is the new after-school club, run by Christ Church Hawthorn, for local kids of primary school ages. Following a pilot program in December 2018, we plan to run throughout 2019, within school term dates.
The pilot program is for Thursday afternoons from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. The program will he held in the Wood Hall (6 Wood Street; corner of Wood and Denham Streets) and in the adjacent child-safe courtyard. The schedule on Thursday afternoons generally includes afternoon tea, games, craft, singing and basic mainstream Christian / Bible input, and is led by qualified / authorised / certified leaders, all holding current Working with Children Checks.
For children who are currently enrolled at Hawthorn West Primary School, we invite parents to authorise the ‘Shine’ leaders to collect their children directly from the School at 3:30pm, and then the parents can collect their children from the Wood Hall at the conclusion of the ‘Shine’ afternoon, at 5pm. Children attending other local schools are also most welcome to participate - they would need to travel promptly from their school to the Wood Hall. Parents are most welcome to attend at any time.
Inviting expressions of interest
During November 2018 we’re aiming to get the message out to every family of Hawthorn West Primary School. We invite expressions of interest from families who are interested. We probably won’t be in a position to run the pilot for all children from Prep/Foundation through to Grade 6, so we’re keen to know the ages of the kids who might be in our pilot ‘Shine’ program in December 2018, and we’ll plan accordingly.
We’re inviting expressions of interest NOW (no later than Monday 26th November 2018) from families who may be interested in their children participating in the pilot program (December 2018) and/or in the regular weekly program in 2019. Please complete and submit the form below.
