Northern Power Grid funded a project where our Health and Social Care students were given responsibility to organise a community event. The community event was based around promoting the Priority Service Register.
Our students attended two sets of workshops led by Northern Power Grid and Ahead Partnership and winning teams were chosen. The event focused on the elderly community and was titled ‘1940s Vintage Summer Fair’.
Our students organised the event by phoning local companies, speaking to local care
homes, organising entertainment and creating displays. It was an amazing event and our Beckfoot students rose to the challenge. Northern Power Grid quoted ‘we are incredibly impressed with the event that Becky Shaw and the students delivered. The school has set the bar incredibly high for any future events'. A quote from the headteacher of the school ‘As a community event – a triumph. As a learning experience – pure magic.’
