Club Vic


Club Vic Youth Group.

Club Vic Youth Group takes place at Victoria School on Monday evenings from 3.30 to 5.30pm.

The school successfully applied for a grant from Children in Need, enabling a team of youth workers from Dens of Equality to work alongside the young people to plan a range of exciting activities, from Picnics in the Park to Water Fights!

he young people are very involved in choosing and planning activities and really enjoy trips out into the local area, visiting parks and cafes and shopping for ingredients for their cooking activities.

Cubs

Our Cub group meet on a Friday afternoon. The majority of our Primary children are in Cubs. They enjoy a variety of activities and games during the hour that they meet.

The Group is led by one of our Teaching Assistants, Sonia Ball, who is an experienced Cub Leader.

Scouts - 145th Birmingham Scout Group

Students of Victoria School have been scouting for over 30 years. There is a pathway through the school where pupils develop from Cubs (Key Stage 2), Scouts (Key Stage 3) and Explorers (14 -19). Three times a year students meet together for formal parades including Remembrance Day.

In the summer, pupils are given the opportunity to integrate with mainstream scout groups at Camp. Cubs, Scouts and Explorers camp together developing unity though scouting.

Our Cub pack meets on a Friday afternoon. Currently there are 24 cubs in Key Stage 2. They enjoy a variety of activities working towards badges such as artist, scientist and entertainers.

Our Scout Troop meets on a Friday lunchtime. There are currently 29 Scouts in Key Stage 3. Scouts enjoy different activities such as Circus Skills, First Aid and Outdoor Skills. Scouting is fully integrated into the curriculum for example the International Activities badge can be achieved through spring term topic and entertainers badge for the Key Stage 3 production.

Explorers is our oldest and newest section. There are 22 Explorers who meet during timetabled lessons. Scouting is used as an avenue to develop leadership skills through the young leaders programme. Explorers will lead younger students using the awards to develop personal skills and self belief.

 

Signing Choir

Our signing choir was established in October 2008. It consists of staff and children and meets on Friday lunchtime. We sign a wide range of pop songs old and new. Everyone has a really good fun time and it makes a great feel good end to the week.

We are regularly visited by Music in Motion who are a local charity signing choir.
