Le Cateau launches Military Kids Club

A Catterick Garrison school is  holding a monthly social night for military families.

The Military Kids Club Heroes events at Le Cateau Community Primary School are monthly social nights for the whole family.

The school has already held a Christmas event and family quiz night, with a bingo night planned later this month.

Headteacher Ian Mottram said: “At Le Cateau Community Primary School we have always worked closely with the community to provide opportunities for the children in our care.

“We know the impact military life can have on our children and families due to the highly mobile nature of the armed forces.

“In order to support our families we have a launched a new club which takes the form of a monthly family social event.  We have been given kind donations from Tesco and Aldi to help us provide refreshments at our initial events.

“All parents are welcome to attend and are encouraged to join in the fun with their children. The teachers have also been spotted joining in with the quiz recently too in the hope that they might win chocolate prize.

“We have lots of ideas for the months ahead and we are really hoping our families will continue to support us by coming along.”
