TIPS!

  • Wear comfortable shoes as you will spend most of the day standing
     
  • Wear something that you can put a Children's Groundwater Festival T-shirt over. You will get one in the morning when you arrive. It lets students, teachers, and parents know that you are an activity leader.
     
  • Activities run rain or shine - so please dress accordingly. Chances are, you will be outside most of the day. Please wear comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting a bit dirty or wet.
     
  • Read through your training manual. It is short but will give you all the information you need to run your centre.
