WPH helps local school celebrate in style

Social Landlord, Wirral Partnership Homes (WPH) is very proud to have supported the 2011 work experience programme of Meadowside School in Woodchurch. Meadowside School is a community special school for students aged 11 to 19 years with a range of special educational needs and/or disabilities. Because of this, many of the students are unable to take part in traditional work experience activities, where a week or two is spent with an employer.
Working with companies across Wirral, students were able to take part in work experience placements. Several students worked in Sainsburys, where they were taught about food hygiene. This was put to great use when, asked to write their shopping list and buy the ingredients, the students catered for the 1950’s Rock and Roll Tea Dance on 30th March! To help fund the event, WPH gave a £310 Community Grant to Meadowside School to help the celebrations.
And to ensure a great audience, WPH residents from Brackendale were invited along as official guests! Guests were treated to sandwiches and scones and a fantastic dance routine by the students, and the whole event came to a close with a game of bingo!
Sally Kew, Community Development Coordinator, said: “This was a brilliant event, where students were able to showcase what they had learnt during their work experience. Work experience is really important for all pupils, and it’s great that a WPH Community Grant could help the kids celebrate in style.”
WPH would like to wish the pupils at Meadowside School every success for the future.
