On Wednesday 22nd July, Heathermount School invited student’s families and friends to their annual Family Celebration Day.

140 guests, including students and their families, School Governors and the Chief Executive of The Disabilities Trust, were invited to a Family Celebration Day. They were joined by students who will be starting at the school in September, and their families, so that they could develop their connection with the school.

The day included sports events such as wheelchair basketball, rugby, javelin and a 50 yard sprint which was followed by a BBQ picnic. A local jazz band entertained everyone during the picnic before the grand opening of Heathermount's Outdoor Classroom.

Our staff worked tirelessly through behind the scenes to make this day a successful one”.
