Welcome to the weekly highlights page. Natalie Hanna, our headteacher will choose a weekly highlight to share with you. It may be a piece or work, a photo or just a story of the week but what ever it is, it will be sure to raise a smile.
On Wednesday we had a lovely musical interlude from Myron, James and John. All of the songs were by the Beatles and many members of the school community cam outside to watch in the lovely sunshine. A great time was had by all and we really appreciated the brief return to normal life at The Mendip School.
The video can be found here.
Thanks to The St James’s Place Charitable Foundation and Somerset Community Foundation a wonderful new resource is now in place at the special school on The Bath and West Showground. Donations totalling over £15,000 enabled a room to be transformed into a stimulating and exciting sensory space. The room provides a fully cushioned and accessible space with tactile media including lighting tubes, UV responsive areas and colour and sound projection. It is already really popular with the children and young people. On Wednesday we were finally able to hold our official opening to thank our benefactors for their generosity.

This week has been a good one so there may be more than 1 highlight to share (and it’s only Wednesday).
Congratulations to the wonderful Angel who has applied to work as a play worker during the summer playscheme. Following a truly impressive interview yesterday she was offered the post and we are all truly delighted for her. She was so impressive that we have asked her to be part of the interview panel for new teaching assistants next week. What an incredible young lady!

Please see the news article about the team completing the Marathon Walk in aid of the new swimming pool at The Mendip School! They walked 26.2 miles along the cycle path from Oldland Common to Bath to Frome.
We gave ourselves a £500 target to raise and already we are just over £1,000 which is amazing and I know there is more to be donated!
