Building futures? Albie Payne and Teddy Curd at the school’s lego club

First published in News by

A HEADTEACHER is determined to bring fun into the classroom with a host of after-school clubs.

Kents Hill Infant Academy, in Kents Hill Road, Benfleet, is offering children several new extra-curricular activities.

Headteacher Shirley Tait believes it is the school’s responsibility to broaden the children’s horizons. Kents Hill runs cricket, athletics, basketball, street dancing, cheerleading, computer and science clubs, as well as Bollywood dance classes and a Lego club.

Mrs Tait said: “My view is children are never too young for anything. We offer this wonderful variety of clubs and encourage our pupils to take part.

“If they try something and don’t like it, that’s fine, but we are very inclusive and like everyone to be able to take part.”

This is nothing new . . . Heycroft School in Eastwood have been doing this for years as I am sure many others have.

Is this news ?

Not really. It's just some headteacher trying to convince us that what she is doing deserves a few brownie points.
