Adult visitors with physical and learning difficulties were treated to a festive music and dance celebration by students from Lawn Manor Academy.

The 20 visitors were from the OK4U day centre based in Upham Road - which have recently been visited by pupils studying for GCSE Music who joined their ‘sing & sign’ class.  

Year 10 pupil Cerys Newham said: “We have really enjoyed working with the OK4U centre this term.  We have been made to feel so welcome each week and learnt lots of signs to songs that we play/sing at school. It’s been a great opportunity and privilege to work with these guys.  The people with disabilities are really friendly and love their music and music is one of my passions. It made me really happy watching them all join in with us this afternoon and I am looking forward to continue to work with them in the new year.”

 

Head of music David Jones said: “Taking a number of our music students to OK4U last Christmas was a real pleasure and as much as the residents enjoyed it our students also loved interacting and singing along with them as well. We have been delighted to maintain links and had a lovely music/coffee afternoon recently where we all sang and played together. I am looking forward to the continued development of links between us into the future as are our students.”
