Half Term Break – Monday 16th February – Friday 20th February 2015


Stephanie Heanue organised a work shop as part of her developing self module in college phase. She invited learners from different classes to use an eye gaze communication device. It was a huge success and all the learners that took part found it very beneficial.


On Thursday 12th February, we had our annual Pancake Race. All of the learners took part in the race and as you can see, everyone had a brilliant time, even the staff were more competitive than the learners! Each of the learners were rewarded for their skills because at Southview, we are all winners!


As you all know it is Valentine’s Day on Saturday, so we celebrated it by posting some of our love messages on the entrance door. Our learners have been posting their messages all through the week and on Friday 13th February; they all had the chance to see if anyone had left them a message.


Please can parents when picking up learners at the end of the day not cut across the route that buses use when queuing, as this can be dangerous when buses move in the queue. Please use the pathways provided on both sides leading towards the main entrance.
