The staff have commented on this being one of their best In-service days. They stressed that it was laid back, fun and most importantly they left the training with something that they could put into practice. A lot of the services used many of the new activities that they learned in the October Holidays where children had full day care. In all, the In-service day was excellent and the staff had a really good time. Perth & Kinross Council Out of School Activities Co-ordinator
