Pupils enjoy making new Connections
Weekend club a hit
Pupils in Rutherglen and Cambuslang who are in their final years at primary school are invited to a new group offering the chance to make new friends.
Rutherglen Universal Connections have launched their Saturday programme for primary six and seven students on the verge of moving to secondary school.
Every week there are lots of exciting activities including arts and crafts, music, sports, gaming and IT.
In the past the youths have enjoyed making a bloodthirsty zombie movie, trying out graffiti art and stencilling, baking, pool tournaments and Hama beads.
Pamela Porter of Universal Connections, explained: “This is a really fun and exciting group. Every week you’ll get the chance to come down to our centre with your friends and take part in different activities.
“We’re always really keen to hear your ideas too, and put them on our programme, so you’ll get the chance to do things that you really enjoy. “
She added: “One great bonus about this group is that you’ll meet lots of people who will be in your classes when you go to secondary school too, which will make the thought of leaving primary a little less scary.”
The club runs every Saturday for 10am – 2pm, and entry is just 50p.
New members can come along to the group at any time, and they don’t have to attend every week.
Hot food such as pies, sausage rolls or toast will also be available from a small tuckshop.
