What a wonderful year we’ve had, here at Our Place Group. We’re now approaching our last week before we take our summer break. We’ll be busy preparing for the return and the start of the Autumn term. Let’s just hope we have a little more sunshine between now and then.
A Few Of Our Highlights
The year has been full of highlights and achievements for each and every one of us, the children and young people. Here are a few of our favourite moments for this school year.
At the start of the year, we celebrated the completion of our revamped sensory room at The Orchard. The sensory room is full of a wide range of audible, tactile and visual equipment that can be accessed at any time it’s required. Our young people continue to enjoy this space, which can have a positive calming effect, improve focus and reduce feelings of anxiety for children on the autism spectrum.
In March we held a Ukraine Crisis Donation Appeal. We asked our colleagues, friends and the local community to donate useful items to help with the Ukraine Crisis. Our Young People worked hard creating posters to encourage donations.
On May 4, 2022, our young people visited the National Space Centre to support the topic ‘May the Force Be With You’. The National Space Centre was incredible and taught us all lots of new things, such as what astronauts wear while they’re in space.
In June we joined in with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. We held an afternoon tea and garden party here at Our Place Group.
We hope you all enjoy the summer months. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with all of our latest news and activities. We’d love to welcome you there.
