We wish you a Happy & Prosperous New Year! From all at Wilson Stuart
The students are always so excited about their Christmas Concert, even though they don’t always enjoy all the rehearsals! But rehearsals are necessary to achieve the very high standards we all now expect and this year was another resounding success.
We had 14 narrators (students that use VOCAS or switches for communication) and 41 students performing a solo or small group ensemble. Of course the most exciting songs are those when everyone is singing together and we work hard to make sure we all know when to be ready.
Thank you to those parents, friends and returning members of staff that came along to support our students – and well done for all the great singing in the last song. See you next year!
The countdown to Christmas continued today with a fabulous Christmas coffee morning event in school.
Students from 5.3 worked hard to help run the event with a tombola and raffle on offer as well as the tasty treats.
Everyone had a great time and helped to raise money for school. Many thanks to the parents for parents team and all staff and students who supported the event.
A special thanks to One Stop who kindly donated two wonderful hamper prizes.
Pictured are the two lucky prize winners. Merry Christmas everyone!
On Friday 7th December They all took part in The Winter Wonderland Experience.
Pupils enjoyed playing in the snow , sledging and tubing. They also saw a production of “The Night Before Christmas” introduced by no other than Santa himself.
Finally they all got to encounter various animals, such as goats, rabbits, pigs , alpaca’s and reindeer.
The pupils were extremely well behaved and an asset to Wilson Stuart School.
Calling all parents and carers –come and join us for some delicious Christmas treats on Monday 17th December between 9.00 and 11.00 in the Primary Hall.
Students in 5.3 will be happy to serve you and there will also be a chance to buy some Christmas wrapping paper and gift bags.
We very much hope you can join us!

On Thursday 15th November, Wilson Stuart were thrilled to welcomed the Meraki Duo.
Meera played flute and James played guitar, and together they delighted us with a varied and unusual selection of music – all themed to the seasons and the weather.
We were able to host this lovely concert with the support of the “Live Music Now” charity, who heavily subsidised the cost.
The Duo played 2 concerts in order to differentiate the presentation style, one for all Secondary Pupils and 6th Form and the other for all Primary Pupils and PMLD.
They explained about the job of a Conductor and how important it is to keep in time, and a few of our pupils had a chance to conduct the Duo.
Pupils competed in the following activities; Boccia Blast, Bean Bag Throw, Kurling, Parachute Popcorn, Poly Bat, Basketball, Ten Pin Bowling, Flight Path and Table Cricket,
for a set amount of time with aim being to get the highest score by either having the longest rally, scoring the most runs, hitting the most targets or scoring the most baskets to give the team the best score they possibly could after all of the events. All the activities were inclusive using adaptive equipment allowing all players to take part. The team finished in an excellent 4th Place competing against teams from 6th other schools in Birmingham.
