Holiday Activity & Food (HAF) initiative benefits from student help

During the Easter holidays, a dedicated group of Sport Leader students in Year 9 volunteered for a local HAF Club at St Pauls Primary School in Spalding to help deliver holiday activities for 5+ year olds.

The Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) initiative is national government funded scheme to give local children a safe, fun and engaging activities during with school holidays with a daily hot and nutritious meal.

Our students had the fantastic opportunity to work closely with specialist coaches from Inspire+ to help deliver a range of activities to young people and put into practice the skills they have learnt on their course.

By studying the Community Sports Leadership (CSL2) programme at Spalding Academy, our students have improved their communication skills and leadership qualities as well as becoming more confident.

Chris Graves from Inspire+ who run the holiday camps for Lincolnshire County Council said “For the whole week the entire group couldn’t have conducted themselves anymore professionally, not afraid to get stuck in and forming great relationships supporting the younger children on camp. We have worked with leaders for years and years and all staff commented on how your leaders had an excellent level of initiative. They made such a positive impact to the experience of all the young people on camp.”
