Life Leisure brings summer fun to St Peter’s Primary

Pupils at St Peter’s Catholic Primary School in Hazel Grove have been enjoying some exclusive holiday camps thanks to a scheme by Life Leisure.

The activity sessions, which are run by Life Leisure’s Active Communities team, have been organised to provide children with activities and care throughout the year, particularly when St Peter’s school holiday dates differ to the rest of Stockport Primary Schools.

Around 35 children a day attended the camps to enjoy a range of activities organised by the leisure club, including treasure hunts, dodgeball, football, pickleball, dancing, bowling, giant Jenga, cricket, lacrosse and much more.  

Kevin Platt, headteacher at St Peter’s, said: “Life Leisure’s holiday club provides an invaluable opportunity for both our parents and children during the summer holidays, particularly when other provision is limited.  

“Our children have a wonderful time carrying out a range of fun and exciting activities, including special themed days. Feedback from both children and parents is extremely positive with the provision becoming more and more popular. Parents know that their child is safe, well looked after and of course having an amazing time!”

Sam Roberts, Lead Coach at Life Leisure, added: “We love running these activity camps and look forward to them each summer. Not only are they a huge help for parents, but we get to have a great time ensuring children in our community stay active and healthy.

“As well as the usual football, pickleball and dancing, we also enjoyed a beach day in the rain, where the children made mocktails and had ice lollies! It was a lot of fun.”

In addition to the camp at St Peters, the Active Communities team is also running three camps across Stockport until the end of August with limited places available at Avondale, Brinnington Park and Stockport Sports Village.
