Snowtubing

The snow may not have arrived yet, but that did not stop us from taking on a bit of winter sport fun.

Some of the students have been Snowtubing at the Halifax Ski Slope Centre.

There were plenty of screams, cheers and laughter as they went speeding down the slope in their tubes.

A few of the students were a bit unsure of the height, but they faced their fears and gave it a go.

All reached the bottom of the slope with big smiles on their faces.

Independent Travel

Ben has completed his independent travel training at Pennine Magpie. He now travels from home in Shelf by bus to and from the Pennine Centre. This involves changing buses in Halifax.

Supporting Local Events

Pennine Magpie dance group Magpie Movers have lots of performances at community events this year. These include, the Beat It Nightclub, Shelf Gala, Neighbours Day, birthday parties and Care Home visits.

Supporting Canal Trust

We have been on lots of barge trips run by the Safe Anchor Trust. The Trust was set up to provide access to the canals for special needs groups. The students really enjoy the trips. We have more planned over summer. Thank you to the wonderful volunteers at Safe Anchor Trust.
