My name’s Mohamed and I am 15 years old. I started homework club when I was 4 years old and I stopped when I was 14. My first trip was on a farm. I saw cows, goats, horses and chickens. It was the first time I’d seen these animals since being in Ethiopia.
As I got older, I went on more and more trips. I went on a camping trip but it rained the whole time. We melted marshmallows over the firepit. We went swimming in a pool and there were waves from a wave machine. It was so much fun.
I also went on a residential to Stubbers for 3 days. We went kayaking and on a banana boat, paddle boarding, canoeing. I flipped by boat upside down – it was terrifying – but I flipped it back up again. At club I even learnt how to jetski!
I stopped going to club for a few years because we were moving homes a lot, but I started back again.
I’d say to other kids: join club! Most kids don’t have the opportunities for trips and stuff as their parents aren’t wealthy. Club basically takes you on holiday, and you can tell your friends about your holiday stories when they tell you theirs.
