Venturing Out CIC – October Holiday Activities

We are an East Lothian based, not for profit organisation that delivers adventurous outdoor activities, in the School Holidays, for children aged 8 to 14. We run these activity programmes in partnership with East Lothian Council’s Outdoor Learning Service.

Activities range from things such as kayaking, canoeing and rock climbing to coasteering, trail cycling and bushcraft. These activities offer the opportunity for children to build confidence, self esteem and resilience. These days also offer a great social setting for young people and a chance to interact with peers in different settings.

We also run an ASN Adventurous Activities provision for children with additional support needs, and their families – this is funded by ELC and enables access to our activities for children who struggle to access mainstream activities. These free sessions run fortnightly at the weekend. More information on this can be found at If you have families that you think may benefit from this provision, please put them in touch.

Lost Property in PE

We have accumulated a considerable amount of ‘Lost Property Clothing’ in our PE department from core PE and Active schools involvement. There are a number of fairly new items along with some which have been worn a bit longer. There are also some items with names /initials on them.

It has all been washed and dried and is now available for anyone to claim.

If you are aware your young person has lost an item or two of clothing in recent months, please ask them to come to the school office and see if it is there to retrieve, or pop in yourself and ask.

This will be available from Monday 9th September to Friday 20th September, after which time the clothing will be donated to a local charity shop.

Hopefully some will be reunited with their own clothing!!

Rise in Asthma Attacks

Did you know there is a rise in Asthma Attacks in August when pupils go back to school after their summer holidays?

Each year we see an increase in asthma attacks in children when they return to school which often result in admission to hospital. 

Check out our top tips to try and avoid this happening.

Remember, asthma attacks are serious and you need to get help day or night if your child is not responding to their blue inhaler.
