It's all about The Sound of Music!

We’ve had a great start to the new timetable at the Harrogate Skills for Living Centre, with the launch of the Gym and Fitness sessions in the new HS4LC gym and also the start of the supported internship pilot.

One of the most popular classes that HS4LC offer is the “Magic of the Musicals” class. Magic of the Musicals course is for people who like listening, discussing and exploring the stories behind some of the world's most famous musicals.

This term we started with one of the most iconic musicals of all time, The Sound of Music!

The students have enjoyed watching the film and learning the classic songs including, Do-re-mi, The Lonely Goatherd and My Favourite Things. Other activities included learning about Austria and where it is on the map, learning and writing the Von Trapp children’s names and this week’s activity is making puppets dressed in traditional Austrian dress.

We run a whole host of courses at our Harrogate Skills for Living Day Centre for adults with learning disabilities and autism. Our courses are designed to stimulate people's interest and to give them the skills needed through adult education and leisure learning to help them develop.

Our structured adult education courses are specifically designed to meet our beneficiaries individual learning needs and are delivered by our highly qualified and skilled professional tutors, aided by learning support assistants and a dedicated team of volunteers from our local community.
