Kingston Rotary Club funded activity week

By Sophie White - July 2nd, 2024 | Posted in Article

This year our students were able to enjoy a week of fun filled activities thanks to Kingston Rotary Club. Their ‘Kids Out’ initiative invites SEN students from local schools to attend Chessington World of Adventures to enjoy a fun day out. This year Kingston Rotary Club extended their offer to allow us to create a ‘Kids In’ week at Dysart school to those not able to attend Chessington World of Adventures.

We hosted a selection of activities our students were able to enjoy; we had a mobile Farm from Basil and Crew, a jungle themed performance from Umbrella Theatre Productions, Little City real world mobile role play, and an African drumming workshop from Primary Workshops. All of the activities were thoroughly enjoyed by all and our Kids In and Kids Out week was a great success.

This wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the Kingston Rotary Club who’s continued support has allowed us access to some wonderful opportunities for our students and families.

One of the ways they raise money is through the Friends of KidsOut 100 Club. Ideally the Club has 100 members who each pay £60 per year to be entered into a quarterly draw with a first prize of £400 and the runner-up receives £100. With a fully subscribed membership the KidsOut 100 Club raises £4000 annually which is a large chunk of the over £10,000 costs required to run the day. At present there are only 87 members. There is now an opportunity for anyone from Dysart Community to join the Friends of KidsOut Day 100 Club and support a great day and at the same time have a chance to win a cash prize every quarter.
