The CVE Department recently hosted a training day for nine new Treasure Hunters volunteers.
It was the first time training had been run as a one-day intensive.
Volunteers were reminded of the privilege it is to be invited as guests into schools. They were also taught skills and important information along with finding out about some fun new games and activities.
Interim CVE Team Leader Katie Sargent said the new streamlined approach had been very successful. “We are excited about the year ahead with more new schools wanting to have a Treasure Hunters program in their school,” she said.
Treasure Hunters groups are run by CVE volunteers during lunchtime or after school and give children the opportunity to hear bible stories and take part in activities that teach christian values.
“The CVE Department have several schools asking for a Treasure Hunters program for their school - which is very exciting - but we need to find volunteers to join a team so we can begin,” Ms Sargent said.
