Parent and Careers Lunches
We have enjoyed brilliant monthly lunches prepared by students from different classes. The students have enjoyed shopping and working out how many people need to be catered for. The smile on their faces says it all.
There have been a variety of speakers covering quite a large range of topics. Aromatherapy, Symbols Making Sense books, Partnership with Parents, Speech and Language therapy and Cool2Care are just a few.
Please do come along to future lunches. It is great to chat to other parents & carers and to get some good ideas from each other.
Many thanks to Darryl for providing the food and for all the staff and students who prepare the buffets.
We also hold coffee mornings every other month from 9.30 a.m. - 11 a.m. at school where everyone is welcome to come.
