A project which aims to give families more opportunities to enjoy learning together had a fantastic reception when it was launched at Milford Haven Junior School.

The Springboard launch attracted more than 250 people who had a great time participating in the free family activities provided, from face painting to jewellery making, cake decorating and crazy crafts.

Headteacher Mr Rees was thrilled with the turn out and said the event marked a very impressive start to the school’s partnership working with Springboard.

“The turnout for the Springboard Fair was fantastic,” he said. The various activities fully engaged both children and adults and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.

“The interest was great enough for substantial numbers to book themselves onto the forthcoming courses which is great news for the school as it is trying to develop parental engagement,” he added.

Springboard is a Learning Pembrokeshire project funded by Milford Haven Junior School.

Project leaders will run an exciting range of free, activities for adults and children throughout the year which will enable them to enjoy learning and develop new skills together.

Activities will take place every Thursday with sessions for adults in the mornings and families in the afternoons.

The courses will change every half term, and all adults with a family member at Milford Haven Juniors are more than welcome.

For more information on courses available go to Springboard’s Facebook page and see contact details for Jenny Shaw, the Springboard Advisor dedicated to Milford Haven Junior School.

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
