Over the Spring term, three representatives from Hertford St Andrew (Ryan , Zoe and Kobi) have been visiting Amwell View to work with young people with both physical and cognitive learning disabilities. It has been a wonderful learning experience for each of our children and they have clearly developed a better understanding of emotional and social factors that affect others. In particular they have realised how people with a range of disabilities are still able to enjoy a wide range of activities and they were amazed at what they ‘can’ do and stopped looking at what they ‘couldn’t’ do.
After the morning visits, Ryan, Zoe and Kobi were invited back to support their new friends in a sporting event. Each of them were responsible for helping their team to succeed in the competition by ensuring that the activities were run correctly and all of the young people could participate safely. They did a wonderful job of ensuring the event went very smoothly and Mrs Garbutt received a number of comments on how supportive and helpful our children were. Each of our children proved to be excellent ambassadors for the school and we at Hertford St Andrew are very proud of them.
Special thanks must go to Mrs Rita Leader for making it possible for us to be able to send our children and a big thank you to the young people of Amwell View School for making us so welcome. A final gratitude must go to Mrs Garbutt who ensured the children were safely transported to and from each visit and for organising the experience.
