Annual Senior Citizens’ Party – Wednesday 14th December 2016

Every year we invite up to 80 Senior Citizens to join us from local residential homes and the local community for a Christmas Party and singalong. They spend several hours with us, enjoying afternoon tea, whilst being entertained by our young people, who sing and perform. We always have a group singalong and Father Christmas makes an annual appearance to draw the raffle.

Local Primary School Christmas Party – St Teresa’s Catholic School – Wednesday 7th December 2016

For the past 2 years we have invited a number of students age 6- 8 years from a local primary school to join us for a Christmas Party. The session involves the students taking part in a Christmas craft session, a paperchain competition, party games and a visit from Father Christmas to hear a Christmas story.

We are very proud of both of these events as we think it is very important to meet, entertain and learn about members of our wider community.  Our students are expected to interact with our guests and this also provides a range of excellent learning opportunities:

  • Catering students prepare the eating areas, bake and serve the food, tea and coffee wearing their official “whites”. This is a superb opportunity for them to cater for large numbers and learn to work under pressure.
  • Health and Social Care students have to write letters inviting students in from the local primary school, risk assess the working area, plan a range of suitable craft activities and games and consider any special educational needs of the visiting students. The party is always a real eye opening experience for them as they have to entertain up to 60 young students for an hour and half and this is real hands on vocational experience. The Health and Social Care students also support the Senior Citizens’ Party – helping to decorate the room and talk to the visiting people.
  • Music and Performing Arts students and students who play instruments and belong to the school choirs sing and perform – another great opportunity.

“Artlets”

We are currently offering Arts-based sessions called “ARTLETS”. We are happy to visit schools and work with a class or year group for up to a maximum of 2 hours – usually we offer a one hour session, but could do more if asked. The sessions are planned based on discussion with staff on a curriculum area(s) they would like boosted or emphasized.  We also offer areas of PSHE/safeguarding. These sessions are tailored to other school’s needs.  This is a great opportunity for partnership working. Our students really enjoy the challenge of having to be creative in planning a very concise but fun session on a set theme – making sure that learning is taking place. This helps our students understand the importance of planning and breaking work down into bite size chunks in order to progress and emphasizes the importance of using a variety of medium to deliver topics.

Munster School visiting for the 15th year in a row in March 2017

We regularly welcome a number of students from schools from countries all over the world! Most recently, we have had visitors from France, Germany, Finland, Hungary, China, Spain and Portugal.

One school from Munster in Germany bring a group of between 80 and a 100 students every Spring to visit the school. They spend an hour looking round the school to understand how a British School works and then have an hour of direct conversation work with our students in a session booked in the Great Hall. We always conclude each session with a group photo, to mark the partnership and publish the visits in our respective newsletters. This is a great opportunity for our students studying German to try out their language skills.
