Children have made pinch pots and mugs to date. Many of the pottery pieces produced will be on display in our Arts Award celebration in June. The Arts Award is being run in conjunction with the Everyman Theatre.

Music therapy continues to be part of our Wellbeing curriculum every Friday. Pupils can also experience a range of Wellbeing activities and among the most recent focus has been internet safety.

Read for Good continue to provide books every term for the hospital and we are looking forward to the return in person of Michael our story-teller, who until recently has been entertaining young people on the ward virtually.

On World Book Day pupils and adults tracked their reading and were able to amass credit (8,000 minutes) for a large number of books which will be distributed through food bank. The minutes were from across GHES and GRH School Room.

Fund-raising for Red Nose Day involved children and young people designing a poster and guessing the right cupcake from the Red Nose Day website. Money was also collected from those wearing something red. One pupil baked biscuits for Red Nose Day as part of our Food and Nutrition curriculum and other children decorated biscuits. Donations for these went into the fund.

Support for this worthwhile event, was down on previous years, possibly due to the fact that people carry less cash post Covid.

PAT dogs have been able to return to GRH and they are very warmly welcomed by adults and children alike.

The School Room has a new TV screen. This replaces the interactive white board and has already proved to be a very useful resource for sharing power points and engaging children in interactive singing.
