Holiday Programme Groups_web uniform


This programme is a popular choice for kindergarten groups. After listening to an interactive story about ‘James the Air Force pilot’, children first learn about, then try on real pilot’s clothing, watch an Air Force video, sit in an ejection seat, and make a kitset glider to take home. A wonderful learning experience and great for photo opportunities.
