Christmas Hampers

Post-16 students have delivered Christmas hampers to a local church, to pass on to people in need. The students bought the contents in the hampers with the profits from their Beech Hut enterprise project, that runs throughout the year, selling takeaway meals to staff, once a week.

Each week the students plan the menu and budget for the ingredients to support and develop their functional maths and English skills. They also prepare the food, serve their customers and take orders and payment to help develop communication skills and independence.

The venture has grown over the last year but once again our students decided to donate their profits to charity and we are sure the recipients of the Christmas hampers will be very grateful for their generosity. Well done to all the Post-16 students who have worked so hard this year.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
