The Supported Learning students at Elmwood College recently showcased their talents, by taking part in a Spring Fling variety show and art exhibition and raised £540 for charity.
The program for the evening included dancers, singers, a puppet show, a pianist, violinist and the grand finale included everyone signing the Sign2Sing song. On display was an exhibition of artwork produced by students in the department.
The General Studies students organised the show as part of their Citizenship, Creative Activity and Working with Others units. There were performers from Lifeskills, Life Options, Life Choices and Skills for Transitions 1 and 2. Colleen Nicol, Life Options student said, “It was absolutely amazing. I really enjoyed taking part in the Spring Fling.”
General Studies lecturer, Lynne Grieve commented, “The event was a huge success and we would like to say a big well done to all the performers and staff who took part. We would also like to thank Asda for kindly lending us clothes for the students to model their choice of work wear. The £540 that was raised will be split between the ICU at Victoria Hospital and the Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh.”
