Below is our updated Young Carer's leaflet.
Young Carers Events
The Young Carers enjoyed Christmas movies and a festive 2 hours, they watched Home Alone and had hot chocolate, marshmallows and goodies including sweets and gift vouchers. Even though they could only be in their Year group bubbles, it all went down like a treat!
All the Young Carers enjoyed an Easter egg hunt, they all hunted for the coloured eggs and won a personalised box with lots of choccie!! The winner who found the golden egg received a large Easter egg prize!
The Young Carers attended numerous events including The King's School rec centre where they participated in First Aid skills, games and spinning classes!
Another group also attended the Outdoor learning event in Deal where they made dens, practiced archery, built campfires and did lots of pond dipping. All of these were provided for by EKST.
The Staff and Students of St Anselm Catholic School Canterbury had an opportunity to learn and reflect on the day to day life and challenges of a Young Carer.
This was thanks to the bravery and the collective effort of the following Young Carers Ambassadors.
We render immense gratitude to them, for their readiness to share their unique and touching experiences eloquently and with a smile on their faces.
The Young Carers Assembly Week this year , which coincided with the Young Carers Awareness Week, was a huge success and will forever be remembered in this school community.
St.Anselm's has recently received this award in recognition for its developing support for the young carers within our community.
We are grateful and inspired to continue with our work
