Each year we ask teachers and learning support workers for ideas for additional gifts/resources that we can include on a Christmas Wishlist for our learners and, as always, they’ve come up with some great ideas. We then set up the Wishlist on Amazon for anyone interested in purchasing a seasonal gift for our learners.
We are absolutely thrilled with this year’s design – thank you to local artist Daleen Coetzee for creating something so stunning! They are A5 size, packs of 5 and cost £3.50 per pack (plus postage where necessary). Inside greeting reads: “and best wishes for the New Year”.
