Christmas comes to Petty Pool

Students have been busy preparing for Christmas since the beginning of the term. Activities have included a range of volunteering and community-based activities to develop students’ employability and personal and social skills:

  • Students from retail and IT class will be running a stall at Northwich Christmas market
  • Prep for work students will be decorating St Luke’s Hospice big red bus. It will be transformed into an enchanting Christmas grotto where Santa and his team of mischievous elves will be waiting to greet all the good girls and boys and hear what everyone is hoping for this year!
  • Students are designing their own Christmas wish bauble to participate in Norley Christmas Tree festival
  • Students will be helping Santa with his Christmas trees as part of Delemere festivities – including wrapping the small trees which are given away by Santa in the Grotto and unpacking the trees for sale. This provides a great opportunity to improve functional skills in the workplace.
