Candlelight & cakes success!

The past three weeks have seen college learners, parents/carers and staff really busy in the build up to our annual festive event. This year we named it ‘Candlelight & Cakes’ and we took the opportunity to dim the lights and deck the college in some gorgeous Christmas colours and candlelight. It was so lovely to welcome old friends back to the college, and equally wonderful to welcome new folk through the doors for the first time.


The event presented our learners with an excellent opportunity to take on specific roles on the night such as serving refreshments, handling cash and welcoming people to college.  The learners also spent time in the run up planning what the event would look like, who would do what (including taking on the role of Santa), how long the event would run for and who would come – all great learning opportunities!


We had some wonderful words of encouragement on the night from those who attended.  We particularly liked this one: ‘could you do this type of event every week/month?’ – see photo below.


A huge thank you to all who came and all who contributed on the day and behind the scenes – we really couldn’t have done it without you.

We wish all our past and present learners, parents/carers, colleagues, governors and supporters a Happy Christmas and all the very best for 2017!
