School’s out and holiday club is in.

A council-run school holiday club has lined up an action-packed week of activities during the half-term school holidays from February 15-19.

Oscars, based at West Hartlepool Rugby Club on Catcote Road, has activities for children aged three to 16.

The service has been hailed as “outstanding” by Ofsted inspectors.

Sandra Robinson, the Council’s Out of School Coordinator, said: “The team have put together a varied programme which includes fun with food, sports and games, film and toy day, plus visits to Summerhill and the Family Wood.

“There will also be a chance for children to make their own bird feeder and the week will finish with a music event.

“Our experienced team are great with the children and everyone is looking forward to the half-term programme. As a parent myself, I know how difficult it can be to balance working and looking after the children and Oscars can ease

the pressure on parents.

“The emphasis is always on fun at Oscars and parents can relax knowing that their children are enjoying themselves and are in safe hands.”

During the half-term break, parents are able drop off their children from 8am with breakfast provided. They then embark on an action-packed day, prior to being collected by parents by 5.45pm.

Oscars also operates an after-school service on weekdays which involves children being collected from school and taken to the Catcote Road centre where they take part in a range of activities.
