Special needs students turn Camberwell Library into winter wonderland

 

Camberwell library was transformed into a winter wonderland by special needs students last week, David Child writes.

Around 30 students from the Orchard Hill College celebrated the festive season in style with Christmas music and a gift sale on Friday, December 9. There was even a dance performance led by the students themselves.

The celebrations were well supported by the local community, with many in the area dropping by to join in with the fun.

The mayor of Southwark, councillor Kath Whittam, was in attendance alongside councillor Kieron Williams.

“It was a fantastic day, the students had lots of things which they had made for sale including signs, cards and plants, all of which had been decorated,” cllr Whittam said

We sang lots of carols and Christmas songs, it was lovely.”

The Mayor has already expressed an interest in being involved again next year and has vowed to visit the college in the New Year.

Orchard Hill College is part of the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust (OHC&AT), a family of specialist providers aiming to provide a positive environment for special needs students to learn and achieve in.
