PMLD Skiing

Over the last few weeks pupils from the Profound Multiple Learning Disabilities department have been skiing at the Tamworth Snowdome. They have enjoyed anticipating the weekly ski trip and showed great enjoyment whizzing down the slope. Many have been able to request more at the end of each run down the slope which has hit their individual education targets. The skiing sessions are run by disability ski and are available for all people with disability at the Snowdome. Have a look at the video link below to see their enjoyment.



TV celebrity gardener visits students at Wilson Stuart Special School

A popular TV celebrity gardener recently visited Wilson Stuart Special School to help launch a new horticultural area and hear about plans for the creation of a sensory garden.

Alan Gardner from Channel 4′s The Autistic Gardener, met with a group of the school’s 19 – 25 year old students, who all do practical horticultural activities as part of their course work. He started the day by officially opening a new replacement poly tunnel, now renamed as the Tube,  which will be used to cultivate a range of plants and seasonal vegetables as well as producing hanging baskets for sale. ”It was a real pleasure to meet the students and see how enthusiastic they are about horticulture. In my television programme I was keen to spread the message that it is all about ability not disability so it’s great to see facilities like this being used to develop new skills and knowledge.” said Alan. A question and answer session closed the day with students keen to find out what it was like to be a TV celebrity and why Alan had decided to dye his hair red!



MacMillan Coffee Morning

On 25th September the school hosted its annual MacMillan Coffee Morning to raise money for the fabulous charity that does so much to support families affected by Cancer. It’s proven to be a great success in the past and this year was no exception, as we raised our highest total ever! As well as scrumptious cakes and sweet treats, we also included a savoury stall and a raffle. Visitors could guess how many calories were in a display of chocolate bars and also guess how many spots were on a cake. Staff and students worked incredibly hard making tea and serving cakes to bus guides, parents and members of the public. The highlight of the day was Teaching Assistant Ed completing a ‘Bruce Bogtrotter’ challenge of eating a whole chocolate cake in assembly. A great time was had by all over £900 was raised! Thank you to all who supported us
