FUN free activities will be on offer to help keep Newham's school kids busy this half term.

The Newham Holiday School, which runs from February 15 to 19, provides over 50 educational courses for students aged from eight to 19 in the borough.

Cllr Quintin Peppiatt, executive member for children and young people, said: "These courses aim to improve students' confidence and interest in learning.

"There really is something to suit every taste at the holiday school.

"Young people will have the opportunity to try out fun inspirational subjects they might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in."

The host of programmes includes "The Junior Apprentice," which provides an insight into the world of business, working as a TV presenter, fashion techniques, cheerleading, go-karting, dance, sport and computer graphics.
