Another year has flown by and the start of the academic year sees Jigsaw celebrate turning 19 years old!
A great day of fun on Sunday 2 September with the first ever Jigsaw Trust & Cherry Trees UK Cycle Track Challenge event here on Dunsfold Park.
Warmest congratulations to our Director of Education, Dr. Emma Hawkins, on achieving the rank of Senior Behaviour Analyst, CABAS®, accredited by the CABAS Professional Advisory Board. Here is a photo of Emma receiving her Certificate from Dr. Grant Gautreaux, Jigsaw’s Senior CABAS Consultant and member of the CABAS Board.
Pupils’ glorious ceramic pieces are now displayed in our Guildford in Bloom raised beds here at the School following a generous donation from The Arts Society (Surrey Hills) and the creative expertise of Surrey Art School.
Cranleigh Freight Services were the victors in our ‘It’s A Knockout’ challenge (Saturday, 7 July); supporting both Jigsaw and Cherry Trees UK. The weather was perfect as all the teams slipped and skidded their way across Graham Fisher International’s giant inflatable ‘It’s A Knockout’ obstacle courses.
THANKS to a generous donation from the Horsham Lions Club, Jigsaw’s 6th Form students now have a splendid new camera, tripod, accessories, photo albums and photography activity books to help with their learning
Two Jigsaw teachers have raised almost £1,000 – by jumping out of an aircraft at 10,000 feet. Carla Vaughan and Amy Holden enjoyed free-falling at 120mph (strapped to an experienced instructor) before their parachutes opened and they floated back to Earth.
Jigsaw pupils have had a very special outing – they went aboard the historic VC10 aircraft now parked on Dunsfold Park, just across the airfield perimeter road from the school.
The World Autism Awareness initiative in April won terrific local support this year as a huge number of businesses, schools, colleges and individuals took part by dressing and decorating in blue, the colour adopted worldwide for autism awareness.
The amazingly talented pianist Derek Paravicini paid us another visit to inspire and engage pupils.
