News: Sta­ple­ford stu­dents mark Remem­brance Day with pop­py display

Img 1052

To mark Remem­brance Day, Not­ting­ham Col­lege staff, life-skills, and sen­so­ry learn­ers from our Sta­ple­ford cam­pus (home to our sup­port­ed learn­ing cours­es) worked togeth­er to help pro­duce a pop­py dis­play that has been viewed by thou­sands of passers-by.

Work­ing with local res­i­dent Tina Leg­gat, who cro­cheted hun­dreds of pop­pies; stu­dents and staff were tasked with mea­sur­ing the twine and thread­ing the pop­pies in readi­ness for the dis­play to be installed out­side our Sta­ple­ford campus.

The dis­play was an oppor­tu­ni­ty for our learn­ers and staff to come togeth­er as part of a wider com­mu­ni­ty project. 

We had the mas­sive chal­lenge of putting over 700 pop­pies onto twine which were just some of the many cro­cheted pop­pies that Tina had cre­at­ed. The sen­so­ry and life-skills stu­dents were bril­liant at count­ing and thread­ing the pop­pies which have been used in the dis­play and some stu­dents also took part in mak­ing the pop­py bunting. 

The stu­dents and the staff all real­ly enjoyed being part of this joint com­mu­ni­ty project and are real­ly proud of the dis­play out­side our Sta­ple­ford Cam­pus. We’re all quite excit­ed about work­ing on our next com­mu­ni­ty project. 

 — Rebec­ca Lees, Sen­so­ry Tutor.

The dis­play went up at the start of Novem­ber and was vis­it­ed by Simon Frost Town May­or of Stapleford.
