After School Program is closed for another year – our sixth, in fact! This year we saw an average of 144 children register each term and an average daily attendance of 68. But the highest daily attendance was…99 children. WOW.

We were pleased to welcome Di Marshall, SIM’s HIV-AIDS Consultant, to the mayhem of the final day of ASP on 19 November. She’s in town to look at our programs and talk about the assistance SIM is able to give us. (And the credit for the photos goes to her!)

The afternoon started with some study/learning time, as some of the children still had their final exams the following day.

Mercia with the Grade 1s and 2s
Lazarus with the Grade 5s

Then it was time for some singing,

and games,

Ready for 'Lions & Leopards'

Tangee showing the children how to splatter their partner (ie, ME) with the water balloons

The children took the 'Water Balloon Toss' a bit more seriously!

before we finished with prayer and giving the children each a “goodie” bag with some treats to eat.

My favourite part? Tipping the rest of the water all over the children!

We look forward to seeing them back after the summer holidays!
