After many months of planning and preparing, we were able to unleash our excitement as we launched The Gathering's Homework Club yesterday.
We are running two sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays from 3pm - 4pm and 4:30pm - 5:30pm serving 6 children per session (12 in total) and we already have a waiting list too!
The sessions began with a sandwich and drink before the kids were finally able to get to grips with the tablets. They've been longing for this moment for a while and the joy and excitement was palpable.
It was a hectic afternoon as we grappled with teething issues and just generally figured out how it is going to work in real time, but despite the stresses involved in all of it, it was a fantastic afternoon!
Precious is our facilitator and she was great with the kids. She's really motivated and excited to be leading the project.
Thanks to all who have supported this project, especially Abingdon Baptist Church and St. George's Weald, we couldn't have done this without you!
