Class 4 have had a busy and exciting year. We have been working hard at modules from the ASDAN program. The students are really enjoying the practical element of the modules such as sports and leisure, using money, signs in the community and using ICT. This qualification can help the students develop skills related to the outside world making the transition from school easier. This year we have two students who will be making the transition from school to adult services. The ASDAN program has made a massive impact on making this transition possible.We also introduced 'active lifestyle' to increase the students physical wellbeing through swimming, fitness, gardening and food sampling such as making their own smoothies. This has had a positive impact upon empowering the students to become involved in life long health. During the month of May, our soccer team will play 3 friendly matches against other school to put their physical achievements to the test and also as a fantastic way to meet other students from other schools.In our SPHE module we have developed the personal hygiene knowledge of the students by improving dental maintenance of the students. We have also continued to make the planet a better place by recycling food products wrappers and tubs and have linked in with other classes to make this happen and keep the school, community and planet a better place to be.
