Elmwood College student development students recently took part in an exciting College summer programme.
The students, who all have learning difficulties, enjoyed regular outings to social events, including an art project at Kellie Castle, strawberry picking at Cairnie Fruit Farm (which they made into jam back at College), as well as water sports at Lochore Meadows. The second week of the two week programme learners had a three night residential stay in the College residence to brush up on their life skills.
The programme is flexible and is adapted to meet the needs of individuals. Experienced Elmwood staff led the activities ensuring the health and safety of all participants throughout the programme.
Head of Unit, Tracey Wight said, “Our Summer School is a great opportunity for our learners to participate in a variety of activities. Everyone has had a fantastic experience and the students are now ready to start their full time student development College course."
Curriculum Leader, Judith Robertson, said, “This is a brilliant project, providing staff with a platform to learn good practice techniques, share skills and have a really good time together, all of which has a positive effect on the student experience.”
