Soft Touch Arts Return to the Children's Hospital School
Last Academic year, music specialists from the Soft Touch Arts Group came to deliver weekly session to students at Willow Bank in the summer term. This year, they have been back and have expanded their work to the CHS students at Ward 3! Superstars Steve and Perri have been leading workshops in music performance, technology and song writing.
All this great work has been very well received by students across the sites and will continue to run up to the Easter holidays. Similar to last year, it is hoped that the Willow Bank students can visit the Soft Touch Arts HQ at the end of the project to do some professional recording.
A High Profile Visitor to the School
Labour MP for Leicester West Liz Kendall visited the Chidren's Hospital School earlier this month. She had a tour around the Willow Bank dayschool and met with staff and students. It was great to have a high level local politician visit the school. On her website Liz said:
'It is really important that children who are experiencing mental health problems have access to good quality education.'
