He said: “There is not enough emphasis nowadays on kids being encouraged to develop their natural creativity. By creating useful and fun projects such as paper plane launchers and wooden treasure chests through woodworking, we will equip the children with lasting skills as well as giving them a real sense of achievement, satisfaction and fun.”

The school will run at Colinton from August 20 to 24, between 10am and 4pm. Indoor and outdoor activities will be available, and wrap-around care is offered from 8.30am to 5.30pm. See www.makesummerschool.co.uk.
