Welcome to the Anchor Boys area of the website…
We strive to have an action packed, fun night every week with lots of games and arts & craft projects.
We teach the boys life skills such as road safety and fire safety. We open and close every meeting with a short service where we will sing a verse of a hymn and say a prayer. We also read stories to the boys.
Our aim is for the boys is to:-
Learn new skills: the dexterity required for arts and crafts, following simple instructions for games and activities
Develop confidence: given opportunities to do things for themselves, praise for good behaviour, taking part in simple role play, mime and drama
Develop physical skills: co-ordination games, hopping, skipping and balancing
Develop independence: being given simple choices of activities, short trips and visits
Develop a group identity: belonging to a group, going on trips as a group, taking part in group activities
Develop an awareness of the needs of others: learning to share and co-operate
Develop a personal identity: learning about how we are all different, looking at different needs and interests of others
There are three activity badges the boys can achieve along with a service badge.
We have Halloween and Christmas parties planned along with our annual outing. We are planning visits from the local police and fire brigade. I hope this gives you a picture of what we strive for, here in 3rd Falkirk.
The Anchor Boys Section meet every Friday night at Falkirk High School between 6.00pm and 7.15pm. The boys age ranges from primary 1 to primary 3.
