Heating up the bowling alleys

Rathbone got a call to say the halls heating had gone. So to the youth club members surprise we took them bowling. They were all very excited about the trip out in the local community and on the way to elephant and castle bowling the were all discussing who was going to win. Once we got there we took over two lanes and many of them managed to get a strike and put the youth workers scores to shame!!!!


Last week during the half term holiday Rathbone went on a trip to Catford Broadway Theatre to see The Wizard of Oz, Pantomime style version created by Blue Star productions. We met at Rathbone Office is West Norwood and made our way to Catford. It was a bitterly cold day but the group were in good spirits and looking forward to a trip to the theatre. We managed to get a quick bite to eat and made our way to our seats. The theatre was full of other schools and youth groups cheering and singing along to the music. Rathbone got involved with the singing at the start and also got involved with the hissing and booing of the wicked witch of the west. The Lion, Tin Man, Dorothy and Scarecrow made their way to the Wizard of Oz with some great choreography and use of lighting. The production really inspired the group and many of them want to return back to the theatre in the next half term.

Update from Youth Group

Today the group enjoyed making Valentines for their loved ones, they made some very special cards, I hope the recipients appreiciate their massive efforts. The tuck shop was in full swing as usual and they are all working hard to turning that money into profits to buy some more games or trips for the youth club. After the tuck was closed one of the Youth club workers led a workshop and discussion on bullying. The group discussed different types of bullying and identifying when it happens and how and who to report it to. After the discussion the group all enjoyed making pancakes!!!!!! The group managed to weighed their ingredients and took it in turns to flip their pancakes. Some members created some wonderful toppings. Next week is half term and the group are looking forward to a trip to Broadway Theatre in Catford to see the Wizard of Oz!!!!
