Moyraverty Arts and Drama Society has recently added to its list of leaders after senior members completed a four week child protection course just in time as the drama society has opened its doors for new members.
Niall Devlin secretary for the society said, “We at MADS! take child protection very seriously and it’s terrific that we have got so many leaders now qualified to look after our members. The safety of our members is testimony to the success of the drama group all our leaders share this responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children irrespective of individual roles.
“We at MADS strive to ensure that all children have the opportunity to enjoy our activities safely regardless of their gender, ability, race, ethnicity, circumstances or age. I would like to thank Laura Corr one of our child protection officers for organizing the course with the Banbridge and Craigavon Volunteer Bureau and well done to all our senior members who completed it.”
The society has now opened its doors for new members to come along and join the drama society. MADS! Kids for children in primary 1 to primary 5 meet up every Saturday at the Moyraverty Centre, running from 9.15am to 11.15am.
