The Wester Hailes Community Trust has presented their latest award to Dads Rock for their Dads Nights project, supporting the group to hold special sessions for dads and male caregivers at local primary schools.
The award of £2500 for the Dads Nights Projects will see Dads Rock run two ‘Dads Nights’ at Canal View and Clovenstone Primary. The events would be open to all pupils and Dads or male caregivers. The events will be fun and give the children and Dads a positive experience of their school with arts/crafts, balloon modelling workshops, cooking together, Ceilidh dancing, face painting, outdoor nature play, and sports. These events will bring together families from across Wester Hailes, and also organisations from Wester Hailes, to work together and build closer links.
