Work experience: (Child related jobs) ------- AMF Bowling Deewhy Role: Party host November 2014 - March 2017 As a party host my role was to supervise and occupy groups of kids and make sure they enjoyed each birthday party to the fullest! I would organise them into groups and watch / interact with them as they bowled and did laser tag. I would organise and prepare their lunch and drinks and supervise as they are. I would then serve the cake and finally escort them to the arcade. I would always have so much fun hosting the parties and a lot of the time kids would come back to the centre and remember me which was always a great feeling!
