Fifth Form bring new colour to The Glen

Volunteering Week 2018 - The Glen

Following on from the successful work of last year, our Fifth Form pupils have returned to The Glen Respite Care Home to tidy and bring a fresh touch of colour to the garden.

As part of Volunteering week, where pupils spend a week working in the local community, pupils decorated the premises and cleared the garden of weeds and debris from a year’s wear and weather.

The pupils spent their time tidying and renovating, building a seaside garden, replanting herbs in the sensory garden, painting murals and so much more.  For some, it was the first time they’d used undiscovered woodwork skills under the guidance of our Estates team, who also lent their time and talents to the project. 

Volunteering Week is designed to provide the pupils with valuable working experience, as they contribute to their community and continue to develop their understanding on a range of issues.

Christien Bembridge, who accompanied the team at The Glen, said “I was so impressed with the work ethic of all the volunteers. There wasn’t an idle moment and pupils used their initiative to make the biggest impact we could over the five days. It’s been one of my highlights of the year!”
