KidsOut Day - 2019

National Rotary KidsOut Day
12th June 2019


Nearly 200 disadvantaged kids, many in wheelchairs, from 11 ‘Special Education’ schools in Edinburgh and the surrounding districts came to the 2019 National Rotary KidsOut Day event at the Jack Kane Centre in Edinburgh on 12th June.  It was organised by the Rotary Club of Edinburgh closely supported by the Rotary Clubs of Bathgate, Dalkeith, Haddington, Linlithgow Grange, North Berwick and Tranent.  The kids were entertained by a range of activities including face painting, balloon sculpture, bouncy castles, magic, music, creepy-crawlies and small animals, football, curling, basketball as well as the mandatory ice cream.  The Fire Brigade was crawled over, while the Police, Coastguard and Park Ranger vehicles roamed about the estate with sirens blazing with happy kids in the passenger seats.
All this would not be possible without the support of the 137 teachers and carers who accompanied the kids. 50 Senior-6 pupils from Edinburgh Schools, 66 Rotarians with their partners and friends manned activities and shepherded groups round the activities. Activity providers were enthusiastic; Jack Kane Centre Staff extremely supportive and tolerant. 
The event was rounded off by a post-lunch Disco that was enjoyed by kids and adults alike.  We were so fortunate that the expected heavy rain did not arrive until then.   The Kids went home happy – the adults went home delighted but exhausted!
