A member of MC&MA (Boys) Kiwi Club gets to grip with the ice

“Terrifying a little, but really good fun.”

That’s how one pupil summed up his visit to Spinningfield’s ice rink with Manchester Creative and Media Academy’s (Boys) Kiwi Club last term (pictured).

It illustrates just how key workers Selene Pears and Christine Clarke are ensuring that our vulnerable pupils are enjoying exciting events they usually wouldn’t be able to experience.

As well as ice skating at Spinningfields, students part of the out-of-hours intervention programme also went on trips to see X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke, the Printworks cinema and Pizza Hut.

The programme, which focuses on reducing risk factors that may lead to anti-social behaviour in vulnerable pupils, also saw them watch Manchester City versus Hull (Barclays Premier League) and take part in the academy’s attempt to break the world tree-planting record.

In addition, Kiwi Club went to see Aladdin pantomime at the Palace Theatre alongside pupils from Moston Lane Primary School.

Kiwi Club key worker and MC&MA Parent Support Advisor, Christine Clarke said: “Kiwi Club gives vulnerable pupils the opportunity to engage in some fantastic activities they wouldn’t normally have the chance to do.”
