Litter Picking in Whitleigh Woods

As part of their Asdan CoPE Award Year 10 are undertaking a regular litter pick in Whitleigh Park and the surrounding areas.  The group have so far collected bags and bags of rubbish and 5 shopping trolleys.  The group contacted the local Council and today Mike Berry sent out a team to collect the trolleys.  they were very impressed with the group's enthusiasm for litter clearance and said they were happy to collect more trolleys from us because the process helps young people understand the value of local parks and natural environments.

Brook Green's Panto Visit

Students from Brook Green went to see Dick Whittington at the Plymouth Theatre Royal on Wednesday 9th January!  Oh no they didn't...oh yes they did!  Everyone agreed that it was a fantastic experience and some students said it was 'hilarious', 'funny', 'great' and 'brilliant'!  It was a special 'relaxed' performance of the pantomime where the lights are on and there are no loud noises so it suits students with autism and other SEND issues.  The stars of the show Samantha Womack, John Partridge and Andy Ford even reminded the audience at the start of the show that none of the show was real and that it was make-believe just to reassure the audience!   The students and staff sang along to songs, clapped to the rhythm of the music and even danced a little! Our favourite character was 'King Rat' played by John Partridge! 

If you want to know more about relaxed performances suitable for children and teenagers (or adults) with autism and SEND issues at the Theatre Royal in Plymouth then please visit
