Bucket Loads of Fun

Bucket Loads of Fun

Our Health Promotion service has been helping Clackmannanshire  nurseries and primary schools enjoy bucket loads of fun through the Play Mentor programme which they have been running in partnership with the Aberlour Child Care Trust.

Nine successful graduates of the programme celebrated with family and friends recently at an awards ceremony at Forth Valley College’s Alloa campus. Play Mentor runs for 10 weeks and gives young women an opportunity to study play and child development at college and undertake work placements in Clackmannanshire primary schools and nurseries.

Mary Scott Watson, from NHS Forth Valley’s Health Promotion Service, said: “The Play Mentors have done a fantastic job. Some of them are about to start volunteering for play and childcare organisations and others are moving onto college or stepping up to new responsibilities in their high schools. We are all really proud of them.”
