Gymnastic Sessions at KOSSMIC
Supported by District and Parish Councillor Barry Bond’s local members grant, KOSSMIC (kids of South Staffordshire making it count) held gymnastics sessions during the summer holiday for its members.
Natalie Bolton from NN Cheer & Dance Academy ran the sessions. She opened NN Cheer & Dance Academy in June 2012 with 1 class of 6 students and now proudly offers a range of classes across the week. The academy offers classes in Pom Dance, Cheerleading, Tumbling skills, Street Cheer and Jazz for children aged 3+ years.
They have continued to grow year on year and their aim now is to develop an all inclusive programme and to welcome more students from SEN Schools and colleges in the local area.
NN Cheer & Dance Academy offer training and leadership skills to students who volunteer their time to the Academy and are working towards young volunteers becoming future coaches.
They believe in giving everyone the opportunity to perform and work on self confidence, wellbeing, making strong friendships and being part of a team. Building and developing skills in a safe, positive environment.
Councillor Bond’s funding paid for the coach’s time to carry out a number of sessions with the young people as well as funding for materials for members to make up some planters and boxes for their homes and the community.
KOSSMIC (Kids of South Staffordshire Making it Count) is a registered charity youth group run by volunteers during the 6 week summer holiday for children aged 9-15 based at Ounsdale High School. All KOSSMIC volunteers are DBS cleared and give up their time to run activities for children whilst they’re off school. Activities range from playing pool, x-box, table tennis and gymnastic sessions to going out once a week on trips such as laser quest, go-karting, scuba diving and to Drayton Manor. Registration is £5 per child to cover the cost of insurance. All drop in sessions are free and coaches for trips are paid for by the group to keep the costs to parents to a minimum.
