HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE STUDENTS VISIT JUBILEE COURT
On Wednesday 23rd October, Level 3 Year 2, Health and Social Care students teamed up with residents at Jubilee Court, a local care home, for an arts and craft activity session in the lead up to Remembrance Day.
The activity was part of an ongoing project aimed to encourage young and old generations to come together, get to know more about each other and teach each other new things.
The students worked with the residents to make paper aeroplanes of different aircraft which would be taken to Duxford to be displayed at a flying event; as part of Remembrance Day.
Level 3 year 2, health and social care student, Camiya Roye who took part in the activities said: “Visiting the residents at Jubilee Court was a fun and rewarding experience like no other. Working with the residents to challenge and express their creative sides and mindsets throughout the morning enabled us to reflect on the history of our country and, how it has developed over time, this was supported by numerous individuals openly sharing with me stories from their experience with the war first hand.”
A representative from Jubilee Court said: “We all feel that this partnership with North Hertfordshire College is working well and have had residents asking when they will be returning.”
Health and Social Care students will continue to visit Jubilee Court residents, once a month to work on different activities as part of their ongoing social action campaign. You can read all about their campaign work with #iWill here.
