Joy Project with Wigan Hospice - Group 3

We are delighted to be taking part in a joint project with Wigan and Leigh Hospice on the theme of one of our Christian Values 'Joy'.

Our third group of very excited pupils visited the Oak Centre at the Hospice to work alongside the Oak Centre members.

The children were once again accompanied by Mrs Kohler and Mrs Fletcher, and worked with users of the Oak Centre for the morning. The session  incorporated photography and creative writing, led by writing expert volunteer Janet, working towards an exhibition at the Hospice in July.

We shared items which bring us 'joy', which included, soft toys, trophies and lots of family photographs. Tillie bought a very, very special family photograph of their newest member of the family, who won't arrive until later on this year! Janet showed us her beautiful handcrafted quilts, which bring her and others lots of joy.

We used these items to create Haiku poems and still life displays to photograph in the mini studios.

We are all loving our joint creative sessions at the Oak Centre.
