These learners have been attending social lunch club for the past year. When they arrived they were shy and quite reserved, but lunch club has given them a space to meet other learners and feel confident in themselves. Wiktoria, Kushi, Shweta and Parwana have become close friends in a short amount of time despite them being in different year groups. Through this they are living the school’s belief of excellent behaviour and care for each other.
Lunch club runs everyday of the week and gives learners the chance to get involved in a range of activities. Their favourite activity is when they can go to the sports hall or gym and play group games. One of our frequent attendees, Wiktoria, says, “I like that I have made new friends”. Shweta adds, “ We can share everything with everyone and eat in a calm place. It’s fun to be here!” The club is run by LSAs who welcome any learners that could benefit from making new friends to improve their communication skills.
