Lyndhurst Secondary College students are embarking on a series of visits to local organisations to develop relationships and forge community partnerships.
To kick off this fantastic project, on Friday 21st July, a group of Year 7 students headed down to Lynbrook Kindergarten to read books, play games and work with the educators to support and learn with the young children who attend. It was lovely to see their interactions and how engaged the children were. The first visit was an overwhelming success. Thank you to Lynbrook Kindergarten for the opportunity, Lyndhurst students are looking forward to their next visit in early August.
The project organiser Sue Carroll, Lyndhurst Secondary College has booked a further 9 visits over the coming months that will provide our students the opportunity to meet residents at Lifeview Willow Wood Retirement Village, to spend time chatting and playing games as well as help at MSFIN (Mums supporting families in need) in Seaford.
These positive community engagement activities are providing rich and meaningful learning for the students by giving them a real appreciation of life in the wider community.
Lyndhurst Secondary College will be continuing to strengthen community partnerships with the intention of more visits to more organisations in the future, building lifelong learning skills in our young adults.
Students Haylee and Holly are pictured playing with a preschool child during their visit.
