EXCELLENCE AND ENJOYMENT

The Acorn Project 2016

This year, over 20 children applied to be part of 'The Acorn Project 2016' and the teachers had a very difficult job in reading all the brilliant applications and choosing 13 lucky children to take part.

 

The project seeks to raise awareness of the work Oakhaven does in our local community and to explore the difficult subjects of loss and transition. Pupils from Milford Primary School have taken part in this project three times in the past few years and it has been a huge success.  The pupils gain valuable insights into the work of the hospice and forge wonderful relationships with the patients. The whole atmosphere is one of celebration, acceptance and friendship. Moreover, the barriers that can exist between different generations are lifted and children talk enthusiastically about their new friends at the hospice and vice versa.

 

The project consists of 4 afternoon sessions including a tour of the hospice, 'buddying' up with patients, an art project and a final party. This year the art project has been linked with our Geography topic of Volcanoes, Earthquakes and Tectonics; the children and patients have worked together to construct, paint and decorate massive volcanoes. These have been filled with different emotions, ready to erupt at the final party.
