What a fabulous fun filled year it has been at the Harrogate Skills for Living Centre not only for clients but also the staff and volunteers!
Friday the 14th of August was our last day of term for the 2017/18 year. We had a week of celebrations with mini graduations, award ceremonies and also our summer programme was still in full swing with extra trips running for day centre clients which included a trip to the National Railway Museum and also a trip to Wetherby which included a fish and chip lunch at the famous Wetherby Whaler.
Through the last week of term at the day centre we held a mini graduation ceremony for the students of the HS4LC Magic of the Musicals course. Each student was presented with a Magic of the Musicals year book and certificate.
The Magic of the Musicals course is a very popular course and therefore due to popular demand we are running the course as part of the 2018/19 timetable too! The course is for people who like listening, discussing and exploring the stories behind some of the world's most famous musicals.
Another of our popular courses is our Music courses. We also held a certificate of attendance ceremony for the students of these classes.
As part of the timetable for 2018/19 we will be running our Dancing Hands and Musical Favourites in which students will have an opportunity to talk about music, sing songs , play instruments and learn basic sign language/actions which you will perform in time to music. We also run a class on a Wednesday at the day centre that is a music class for people who like their music loud and lively.
We also held the HS4LC Press Awards for the Believe and Achieve Newsletter Group. Each
student was presented with a certificate and a special mention for their role in the production of the HS4LC termly newsletter.

We would also like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to all the volunteers and staff at HS4LC. We had a great 2017/18 year and our 2018/19 timetable is bigger and better than ever with new classes including Gym sessions in our brand new gym!
