Porch Boxes donations set to help people this Christmas

This year we are really pleased to be supporting Porch boxes as our Christmas charity. Porch Boxes is a registered charity based in Bury, Greater Manchester, providing crisis packs of food and toiletries to local agencies to distribute to local people in urgent need.

Thank you to everyone who donated to our Porch Boxes collection. Your contribution will help many people in need this Christmas.

A big thank you to our student voice team for planning, organising, and coordinating this.

Art lessons delivered to our primary partners

Art lessons delivered to our primary partners

As part of our Transition offer, Ms Parnell is delivering a number of art lessons to some of our primary links in the community, the first being Christ Church Walshaw.

The topic is based on the Manchester Bee. The focus of today’s session was drawing and recording from observation. Pupils first looked at the history of the Manchester Bee, they then recorded, from observation, a number of bees, using pencil and black pen.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed this today, and Ms Parnell is looking forward to many more lessons where the students can develop their skills.
