TREETOP AND THE PARS
Published: Friday 12 Jan 2018 by Fife Council
A group of Dads who have been attending a Mellow Dads Club were put through their paces during an intensive training session. The Dads have been attending the centre for the past 14 weeks as part of a course which covers topics such as family health and wellbeing, understanding child development and developing parental relationships.
The course has been designed to promote good physical and mental health for dads and their children through sharing activities together. These activities have included baby gym, sensory play, buggy walks and book bug. Taking part in these activities has helped the Dads form stronger bonds with their child. One Dad commented “We have grown together”, while another Dad said “This has made me a better role model for my child”.
Attending the group has also opened up further avenues for the Dads, with them now having the opportunity to take part in volunteer activities at Dunfermline Athletic football ground. The Dads will also take part in a penalty shoot-out at one of the Pars matches in the coming weeks.
Stewart Westwater, Headteacher at Treetop commented “It has been a privilege today to have the support of Dunfermline Athletic. The guys really enjoyed the fitness sessions today and it has spurred them on with their healthy living goals. It has been great to see this group bonding with their children and each other.”
