Kidz Club expelled
Thursday, 9 March 2017
THERE is "shock and sadness" that the popular after school "Kidz Club" at Ballymoney Model PS may close after being told to vacate the school by August 20.
The parents of the 88 children affected heard the unwelcome news in a letter sent by the Chair of the Board of Governors to the Model Kidz Club Committee on February 20.
Describing Kidz Club staff as "brilliant" Dorothy Greer, a "greatly concerned" parent said that the move "does not make much sense."
The Kidz Club Committee have requested an "open forum" meeting with the school and are still awaiting a confirmed date.
Local MLA Mervyn Storey is now involved, endorsing a Model based solution that takes account of space pressures at the school.
However the school position remained unchanged this morning (Tuesday) and in a statement released to The Chronicle they wished the Model Kidz Club well, expressing the hope "that alternative accommodation can be found very soon."
