T in The Street 2018

Our highly successful intergenerational project T in The Street is well underway, with us now in our fourth year. Due to the high volume of pupils wishing to engage in the initiative this session we are running two blocks, with our Partner The Richmond Fellowship adding a new dimension involving clients from their assisted living service as well bringing along our regular members from the dementia service.  As with each year our S5 pupils are working in small groups with older members from The Richmond Fellowship, each group is using the central theme of letter writing to focus their own individual projects on. From the first block we have had wonderfully creative projects, all inspired by the personal interests of the visiting group members, ranging from Harry Potter to writing letters in French. This week we have welcomed our second block of pupils to the project, and we look forward to seeing new relationships blossoming and projects evolving from shared interests and experiences. It is clear that all pupils and clients of The Richmond Fellowship are developing key skills and above all enjoying building relationships with each other.
