Droitwich students create summer activity programme thanks to council funding

Creative students from Droitwich Spa High have set up a one-stop-shop website to showcase summer activities for young people.

 

Lower Sixth Form students Ted Cox, Adam Keen, supported by their teachers John Humfress and Matt Gardner, put together the activity programme, designed and produced leaflets and posters and created a website.

 

From street theatre and rugby camps to bug hunting and fitness challenges, the summer activity programme will run until the end of August, with classes held on a weekly basis. 

 

The students are keeping the website updated with activities, clubs and events for young people in Droitwich Spa and the surrounding areas including Bromsgrove, Worcester, Hanbury, Upton Warren and more.

 

To fund the project, Droitwich Spa High School was given a £1,200 bursary set up by Droitwich Area Young People’s Action Group (DAYPAG) and paid for by Wychavon District Council.

 

Cllr Richard Morris, Portfolio Holder for Economy and Housing for Wychavon District Council, said: “As chairman of the DAYPAG I am really impressed with what the students have created and the hard work they have all put into this project. The website is a great way for young people and families to get involved with fun activities to stay active and meet new people over the summer.”
