School Holiday Cover

School holidays can cause problems for working parents so we are pleased to offer a Holiday Club every day (except the Christmas Holidays). This is full of fun and exciting activities, theme days, visitors and trips. Places are available for all P1-S2 children from any area including Lanark, Biggar, Carluke and Forth. You do not need to be a current term-time Playbarner to be able to attend our Holiday Club. Everyone is welcome!
