Family Learning Celebrates Success!
Over 300 young people and their families recently celebrated their graduation from Newcastle United Foundation’s Family Learning programme at St. James’ Park.
Family Learning is an after school club for children and their parents or guardians that aims to help participants become stronger, healthier families whilst also aiming to give participating adults the confidence to explore further learning.
The programme, supported by The Big Lottery Fund and Isos Housing, combines classroom based learning with physical activities and football. The blend of the programme and the mix of physical activities and in-class activities is an important feature making it inclusive and broadening the appeal.
Foundation Coaches presented certificates to each of the participants and awards to the term’s top performers.
Adult of the Year: Kelly Thompson
Child Learner of the Year: Connor Robson (Bede Academy)
Family of the Year: Joseph and Dave Hartfeld (Hilton Primary Academy)
School of the Year: West Denton
Adam Herczeg, Newcastle United Foundation Project Officer, said: “The Families at this celebration have all worked incredibly hard throughout the programme and I would like to thank them for their commitment to Family Learning. It’s been amazing seeing them all work together and achieve so much. I’d like to thank The Big Lottery Fund and Isos Housing for their support.”
