Midsummer Mischief for The Move Programme Schools
Midsummer Mischief for Schools with the Move Programme
Pupils, teachers, and staff at schools across the country donned their best glad-rags and fancy dress costumes to mark the 10th national Move Day in aid of flagship disability project the Move Programme from Enham Trust.
Incorporated by leading disability charity Enham Trust in July 2015, the Move Programme improves the quality of life for people with disabilities and complex needs, and the people around them, by increasing functional mobility.
Adopted by over 230 schools, adult centres, hospitals, and child development centres across the country, the Move Programme from Enham Trust has so far supported over 4,000 children and adults to gain independence; including the 120 pupils with complex learning and physical disabilities.
Move Day celebrates the achievements made by children and is held to recognise the difference that the programme makes to thousands of disabled children and their families as they learn to sit, stand and walk to the best of their ability.
The Move Day competition this year made for very tough judging with everyone going to such an amazing effort. Ultimately the hub at Sanderson’s Wynd Primary School, Tranent came up trumps. They turned their normal weekly timetable into a week full of fun, mischief and messy summer play time. A special mention must go to Henry Tyndale School in Hampshire who came second.
Sanderson Wynd will soon be presented with a trophy and their £500.00 Jiraffe equipment voucher. The Move Programme would like to thank Jiraffe for their continued support.
Congratulations to everyone took part in Move Day 2016. If you have any suggestions for next year’s theme, please get in contact with us.
