Despite only starting in Term 2 this year, Treasure Hunters at Poynter Primary has grown to become one of the largest. Aided by several helpers, convenor Alison Rasmussen often has more than 90 children attend each week.
“The students give so much positive feedback,” Alison said. “Verbally as well as in the form of cards and letters. They especially say how much they lovelearning about stories from the Bible and how it helps them to make good choices in their lives. They also say how much they enjoy playing games, entering competitions and being with friends!”
Staff have also noticed the positive impact the club has on students. “Many say how excited the kids in their classes get before Treasure Hunters as well as how happy the students are afterwards,” Alison said. “Parents have mentioned how grateful they are for the effort we put in and say how much their kids love it.”
