Flag Day, Positive Parenting and a TV appearance!
We at The Parent & Child Society love what we do. From watching your baby learn how to smile, roll over and eventually grab toys!
To seeing them come running in happily to playgroup where they learn vital social skills and then eventually Cooking & Craft Club where we get to watch them become independent and ready for school. It really is a joy to watch them grow. We never underestimate the importance of our groups. We are continually working on making the sessions better and developing new ideas. But PACS can’t run without the all-important donations. We are a registered charity run purely by volunteers. Any money received is always reinvested. With Covid restrictions still in force, the purchasing of cleaning products is currently our biggest outlay. New toys, insurance and of course ingredients and items for our craft club all need to be purchased. There is of course no obligation to donate, and it is definitely something we would never police. Our groups are open to all members of the community. But please, when you see our tin at groups, if you have a spare £1.00 then we’d love you to put it in! As we are writing this, the final planning for our annual Flag Day on Friday 28th January. Flag Day makes a huge difference to us as a charity. The more money we have, the better we can be
GBC “Join the Club”
As always, we are constantly trying to find ways to promote what we do to ensure that we reach the whole community. GBC are running a new season of the programme “Join the Club.” The programme takes a look at Gibraltar’s many clubs, societies and associations and lets you know how you can join in. Some lovely Mums who attend the groups, agreed to be interviewed along with two of our trustees. We’ll let you know when we will be on! Thanks, GBC, for taking the time to come and film one of our playgroups and our ever-popular Cooking Club!
Positive Parenting with ChildLine
Last October we had the pleasure of working with Childline to offer a Positive Parenting Course to some of the Mum’s who attend our groups. The course was a great success! So much so, that in February we will be offering the course again to a new set of Parents. We are very proud that we are able to offer this to our parents. If you are interested in discussing it further. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
