CVE Team Leader Katie Sargent visited Hollywood Primary School to see how the Treasure Hunters club was going. The club, which is run on Thursday afternoons, transitioned from CRE three years ago.
Through games, Bible stories and school values, students develop a greater awareness of the world around them. The afternoon is a much anticipated part of the Morgan family’s week.
Mum Rita, said the club had been a great way for her kids, Isabel, Gareth and Richard, to make friends in a new school.
“We need support to teach our kids values and because it’s values based, that’s what I love,” she said. “I also love that it’s nondenominational, which is fabulous.”
Year 3 student Gareth said he enjoyed playing the games and learning about God.
“I remember the story about Daniel and the Lion’s Den, I liked it a lot and I really liked the one about the son coming home after he left,” he said. “His dad still loved him and they had a party because he came home. When you come to Treasure Hunters, you feel like the people really care about you, they are really nice.”
