This project was set up by Andy Spencer, Teacher of Design and Technology, who said “The students thoroughly enjoyed themselves painting the Games Room and have learnt some valuable skills that will serve them well in later life.” whilst Annalise Beesley said “This was a really good, fun experience and we all worked well together.” The students hope to retain and continue their voluntary links with Meadowside next term and to carry on helping whenever and however they can.
