Saturday Club

Super Saturday
The Happy House is spreading its happiness to children in the local community.
Working with local businessman and good friend, Shariff, who has built his own small school in Watamu, we invited seven schools each to send two teachers and three pupils to the launch of a Saturday Club.
We want our little visitors to have fun, playing with our Happy House kids, joining in games, riding bikes, drawing, watching dvds and learning the basics on our computers.
There was, of course, biscuits and juice for everyone too.
Teachers were amazed when they were shown round our building and so impressed by the way we look after our children, and, all women, they all wanted to cuddle our babies! We hope they will be telling everyone about what they saw because we want to be at the heart of the community - and taken into its heart, too.
This group of children will be coming to Saturday Club, with different teachers, for the next three weeks and on the last week their parents will be asked along too. 
Then a new 4-week programme, with a different set of children, will begin. 
If the first week is anything to go by, its going to be a great success and, we hope, teachers will be able to use a visit to Saturday Club as a way of rewarding pupils for effort and good behaviour or performance!
