We are having a Summer Session Play Day for children with additional special needs and their families and carers. Siblings also very welcome. It’s a wonderful opportunity for those children who used to attend and that are now in school, to catch up in the holidays and to meet some new friends too. The children can play indoors or outside in our musical/sensory garden and the parents can share experiences and advice over a coffee. For those wanting to stay all day, please bring a pack lunch. (During term time, we run 2 drop in sessions in The Play Room for children with additional special needs and their families/carers. We are a unique and valuable resource to families in Highland. We are a registered charity (SC007653) and the committee are made up of parent carers.)

Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd August in Aberdeen

This project is all about believing in our young people and the power of play, and that people of any age can be inspiring leaders. Following an intensive mentoring programme since January, our three incredibly committed and enthusiastic youth leaders, Abbie (17), Calum (17) and Kate (12), will be delivering this 3-day event on Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd August in Aberdeen, focusing on their passions of percussion, recycle art and sports, and striving to inspire other young people to believe in themselves as leaders. If your child is aged between 8 and 12 years old, would they be interested in taking part in some free, cool workshops led by our youth leaders? Do they like percussion, art and sport? Are they free on Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd August? If yes, please see the attached poster and www.facebook.com/acevoices, and contact Alec Thompson-Miller to book places at alec@acevoices.org!
