As well as working closely with Seaton Primary School to deliver the Footy Tea & Breakfast Club programmes, AFCCT also do a lot more with Seaton School. Seaton pupils have come along to AFCCT’s Dementia Friendly Ceilidh’s and AFCCT staff have spoken at school employability fairs.

AFCCT Community Projects Officer Dean McBain had this to say about Seaton Primary School. “From the first time we met with Seaton Primary School three years ago, it is amazing how much work has been done together. This is due to a great working relationship between AFCCT staff and the teachers, parents and pupils. It’s great to see the positive impact that has already been made and I’m sure it will continue to do so in the future.”
