Kinross Primary School students have enthusiastically embraced the Treasure Hunters program this year, despite never having had Christian Values Education at the school.
It started with only one student signing up for the lunchtime program in the first week. However, volunteer Anna Dakiniewicz never lost hope.
“A week after we started, we received a phone call from the school informing us that nine children had signed up,” she said.
When volunteers arrived at the school to run the program, there were 19 students.
“The club started just before Easter, so we were able to tell all the children about the Easter event,” Mrs Dakiniewicz said.
There are now 25 children participating, with more waiting for parent permission. The program is already developing a positive reputation at the school.
“Many teachers come by and tell us they love what we are doing.”
