Eight young master chefs have been cooking up a treat on our Cakes and Biscuits Course. From homemade blueberry muffins, Lemon Drizzle to chocolate cookies and cheese scones.  
The young people have learnt the skills to not only bake but to put their own twists to traditional cakes.  

Young Person, male - aged 11: ‘It’s been fun, you make cakes that you might not be able to make at home. You meet kids the same age. I would do this course again! The food tastes great!’   It been great fun, better than I expected.

Yeah, I thought it was just decorating but we are baking too’ – Two young people, female - aged 11 & 12.   The chef tutor said: ‘They (young people) have coped really well in hot conditions.

They made on the first day, chocolate cookies and decorated biscuits with natural fruit flavoured icing, such as passion fruit and strawberries’   We were lucky enough to sample some of the wonderful cakes and biscuits, and they were the perfect measure; scrumptious! And, of course we will be adding this popular course to our holiday programme in the future – Watch this space!

Summer adventures are in full swing with 10 courses successfully attended and over thirty more to go!!
The Positive Activities team in Barnet have been busier than ever!
The first week started off with fun on various courses ranging from Circus Skills, Boot Camp to the Beat, Introduction to Childcare, Creative Media and more! The end of the week brought even more excitement to young people who tried to stay cool by Kayaking at the Welsh Harp Reservoir – Lucky them!

In between all of this we had 80 plus amazing young people complete their Silver DofE expedition in torrential rain!!

We have had great feedback from parents including the quote below: “My daughter enjoyed Multisports so much she cannot wait to do it again. The tutor was very good too, thank you for putting her onto the course”.

This week along with the return of some of our favourites, we introduce new courses such as an Introduction to Journalism and Real Tennis. Anyone who can guess what ‘REAL’ tennis is, send your answers to byes@barnet.gov.uk and we will feature it in our next article.
