On the 16th July 2018, 23 students took part in a residential week at Butlins inBognor Regis supported by staff from the college. This was made possible by the very kind donations of two employers, Karl Ward form Office Recycling Solutions and David Bennett and Caren Duddy from Aecom. During the week the students were encouraged to be as independent as possible, taking care of their own personal needs, budgeting their own money and making decisions for themselves. They also had a fantastic time participating in all the activities Butlins offer and spending time with their friends.
HIVE students took part in a sports diversity day at Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School. The HIVE students answered questions on disability, to help raise awareness and to promote different sports.
The Hive College sensory room has had some lovely new sensory resources. The sensory room is a calming environment used for wellbeing sessions for Live students and sensory light and sound sessions for Strive students.
Some of our students from the Live and Thrive programmes participated in a sports inclusion day at Villa Park.
All students attending were given the opportunity to take part in various inclusive sports such as; tennis, football, laser shooting, fishing and cycling. It was great to see our students all having a go at new sports and enjoying themselves, whilst having the opportunity to meet many inspiring people.
Daniel Roden – “it was the best day ever”.
Some of our students have realised that they have a talent for certain sports and have built contacts with organisations to continue with the sports outside college and to develop their skills further.
Students showed their competitive sides and demonstrated positive teamwork throughout the day, including working with younger students from junior schools.
Definitely a fantastic opportunity which will hopefully be repeated.
Here is a sample of the beautiful hanging baskets and herb planters that our students at The Hive College have produced.
The hanging baskets are priced at £12.00 each and the herb planters are priced at £10.00 each.
They are available to order from the college. Just ask a member of staff or email us on: firstname.lastname@example.org
