Senior Assembly

Classes Arran and Shetland worked together to present
their assembly to all the senior pupils this afternoon.

They presented a whistle-stop tour of Scotland with music and dance.

Another first for IMS…… the students from class Shetland
supported our Reels on Wheels group, to a great
cheer from everyone.

Class Arran presented Anthony with a thank you card for being a great peer mentor to his friends. Well done Anthony.

 

Coffee and Chat

Mellow Parenting

Join us on Tuesday May 3rd, 1:30 -2:30pm for Coffee and Chat.

One of our parents
Lindsey MacLeod/ Cockshott
and Rachel Tanish will share
their ideas about the support group for parents,
Mellow Parenting.

 

We are in the process of trying to develop a programme to help support parents with children with additional support needs and we
would welcome your
views on some of our ideas.
We are Lindsey Macleod / Cockshott (clinical psychologist) and Rachel Tainsh (programme development officer with Mellow Parenting).
We both have children with additional support needs as well
as a good bit of professional experience in this area.
We are keen to work with Isobel Mair School and Family Centre
and other colleagues from East Renfrewshire Council to explore
ways of helping parents in the challenges they face in their
relationships with their children. If you would be willing to meet
with us for a coffee and a chat about this we would really
appreciate some feedback on our provisional plans. It would be
an informal get together and we would very much value your thoughts.
If you are interested please come along to “Coffee and Chat” at Isobel Mair School on 
3rd May  1:30- 2:30pm.

 

Blast from the past

Delighted to have a visit from one of our ex pupils Daniel Forrest.

Daniel travelled independently from Greenock by public transport, train and bus to come say hello to all his old friends and staff.

It was lovely to see him and hear all about his time at college.

Thank You

Thank you to funding from the” Big Lottery Fund – Awards for All” we were able to provide some of our pupils with a week of fun, learning and amazing experiences.

Rachel from Everybody Dancing company spent the week with us providing the pupils  with opportunities to move their body, be creative and communicate in a fun and engaging way.

Our final day ended with a showcase for parents and an evaluation of pupil progress.

What are we going to do next week…………….

 

 

 

Flying High at IMS

This week classes Cumbrae and Arran have had the most amazing Aerial experiences with  “EveryBODY Dancin”, Water Baby and Dirty  Feet Dance companies.

It is incredible and everyone is raving about it!

It has been inspiring to see the pupils relax as the week has progressed and allow them the opportunity to experience dance in a creative and fun way.

Communication is a big part of the process and when the students from Dirty Feet dance company joined us on Wednesday they were looking at the pupils communication….. were they happy or sad? vocalising for more or did they want to stop.
Alongside the school staff they completed assessment sheets to show the progress of the IMS pupils communication during the sessions .

Have a look at our photographs below and more to follow tomorrow.
