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.
