information SERVICE DETAILS

After School/Homework Club (ASCH) for children aged between 5-14 years of age.

ASHC aims to provide learning support to children.

The primary aim of the After School/Homework Club is to support and nurture each child’s individuality and personality development by catering to their individual needs. The club aims to provide learning support to those disadvantaged children who have very little help at home due to the low literacy level of parents/guardians.

Following are the objectives of the club:

- Helping children to develop their bilingual skills by providing sessions on their first language as well as the English language.
- Helping children with their school work under the supervision of club workers.
- Providing online educational programmes during the afterschool club hours.
- Encouraging outdoor activities by providing various sports activities.
- Encouraging healthier lifestyle by introducing them to healthy eating.
- Encouraging independence, self-confidence through various learning activities.
- Creating better communication channels between parents and child through interactive sessions.

To achieve its aims and objectives and to provide a high quality service to children and their parents/guardians, the ASHC is registered with the Care Inspectorate and will be open at the following times:

Fridays - 12:45pm to 3:45pm

A range of activities will be provided to support positive mental and physical development of children.

The ASHC is proving to be extremely helpful for the children who attend various organised activities. The ASHC runs as needed by parents and additional support is offered to disadvantaged children who don’t have it at home due to low literacy level of parents/guardians at home.

As reported by children and their parents, the activities offered in the last twelve months have had positive outcomes in the form of combating negative impact of isolation among mothers on children, learning more about healthier lifestyle, healthy cookery, and positive mental and physical health.

The children are also offered additional studies support in the form of tuitions, online educational programme in maths, English and Science. Individual needs for children are identified and volunteers attached to them to address their needs.
