Holiday Activities & Food Programme

Summer Camp 2023

St Joseph’s will once again provide a Holiday Activities & Food (HAF) programme over the Summer 2023 school holidays.

We are continuing our collaboration with our Breakfast and After School Club, led by Mrs Odewale, to bring an exciting and fun-filled programme during our Easter break. Mrs Odewale has assembled a lovely team of St Joseph’s staff, volunteer sports coaches and teachers from surrounding schools.

The programme will be held on our extensive grounds, with our field and forest schools.

Food/nutrition & healthy eating

As part of the programme, we provide a hot lunch meal each day which complied with School Food Standards.

In addition, children are provided snacks during break times as well as the opportunity to make their own food – we have had great success in the past with children making their own smoothies based on fresh fruit for example.

Finally, the children are given the opportunity to engage in gardening including planting and growing plants for their own use during the programme. We have both vegetable and fruit (orchard) gardens at the school as well as several areas where we are establishing wild-flower / wild meadows, so there is plenty for them to do during the holiday.
