Thomasson Memorial School is a day school for deaf children aged 4 – 16 and a nursery for hearing and deaf children aged 2-4. The aim of the school is to enable the children to maximise cognitive involvement through enlightened teaching, leading to opportunities for a full and successful life.
The school was looking to widen its horizons a few years ago through a greater range of outdoor and adventurous activities. They were keen to give their children opportunities to have a go at activities they had never experienced before in a nurturing, safe and secure environment and were recommended the Anderton Centre by colleagues.
The children took part in a range of stimulating activities including paddle boarding, kayaking, tree climbing, leap of faith and archery. The activity that proved most popular this year was the paddle boarding which the children found very entertaining and exciting.
Each child undertook the activities with the support of the professional instructors from The Centre who were praised for their interactivity and encouraging approach to the children.
Tanya Reynolds from the school commented, “We love coming to the Anderton Centre each year. It was ,and always has been an amazing experience for our children from start to finish. The instructors are amazing and the facilities offer great opportunities and activities for the children, and the staff are just brilliant.”
With a combination of excellent service, superb facilities, friendly and professional staff the centre has completely won over Thomasson School who have already booked again for next year.
David Germain, Head of Centre at The Anderton Centre commented, “A key aim of our centre is to provide facilities which are accessible to all and we welcome all schools, including those who have students with special needs. Our team is fully geared up to support them and provide a fun, challenging and safe setting where the children can develop new skills and build their confidence through a range of outdoor activities. It is easy to forget that children learn so many lifelong skills through experiences and challenges they undertake in environments such as ours which complement their traditional classroom based learning. “
