Well here we are again at the end of another term and with the end of the year looming ever closer! So what are your family's plans for the holiday break? I know in the other schools where I have been Principal, the parents are usually working during the holidays and the children are either at paid care or with family members.
Well, don’t stress if you haven’t got any major plans for the holiday period because you have to work through. One idea is to plan to do something small with the children every weekend! A number of months ago, the Principal of Edinburgh College asked me if I had any adventures planned with my children. My answer was...ummm, maybe in the September holidays we’ll do something. He then continued to ask, “What about this weekend coming?”. “What adventure do you have planned for this weekend?”. I had nothing planned, and it got me thinking!
So, I started planning and doing small adventures with my children. These adventures have included playing at the park across the road, travelling to various parks around Berwick and stopping at all of them to play, attempting to hit golf balls at a driving range, playing basketball, family spring cleaning and even trying to rock climb! Most of these activities were actually free!
So how about you? What adventure will you plan to do with your children? Whatever you decide or have already planned to do, I hope you are all safe and that God will keep special watchcare over all of you this coming holiday period.
Happy Adventures and we will see you all next Term!
