Students care to helpMalton School
Students from Malton School showed their caring side when they spent the day at Welburn Hall School, near Kirbymoorside.
The Year 12 students who are all studying Health and Social Care spent time in the morning working as classroom assistants with students ranging from KS3 to college age.
In the afternoon our students helped the pupils with a dress rehearsal of their nativity, getting pupils ready, face painting, filming and photographing the performance and even standing in for missing pupils.
Malton School students also performed a Makaton version of Disney’s ‘Let it Go’ for the pupils. Makaton is a language programme using signs and signals as a way to communicate.
Welburn Hall is a special school working with children and young people who have a wide range of special educational needs. The visit enabled students to demonstrate their care values which is a key part of their studies.
Teacher Nicky-Jo Cooper said: “The pupils showed a mature attitude all day and thoroughly engaged with the experience. Some of our own students said that they would want to work with pupils who have needs in the future. It was a great day.”
