Top Tip - Be Dynamic!

by Doug Horley
If you stand at the front and look like a wet Wednesday then don’t be surprised if the children all look the same! Throw yourself into it 100% and ask the rest of the children’s leaders to join you. It’s important that the whole team realises they are role models for the...
