Nu­ture ses­sions room opened at school

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

A new room has been opened at Ys­gol Ei­fion Wyn, Porth­madog which of­fers a safe, com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment in or­der for new ‘Nur­ture Ses­sions’ to be car­ried out at the school.

The old com­put­ing class­room has been trans­formed into a pur­pose­ful room for the scheme, and has been named ‘Ystafell yr Enfys’ (The Rain­bow Room).

The staff at ‘Ystafell yr Enfys’ will fo­cus on ed­u­cat­ing small groups of chil­dren, with the em­pha­sis be­ing on de­vel­op­ing emo­tional and so­cial skills whilst also fo­cus­ing on lin­guis­tic and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy by fol­low­ing guide­lines set by the Nur­ture Group Net­work.

Ys­gol Ei­fion Wyn Head­teacher Mrs Carys E Jones said: “This ex­cit­ing ven­ture would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the amaz­ing sup­port from lo­cal busi­nesses and the com­mu­nity. Nearly ev­ery­thing in the room has been do­nated in­clud­ing a kitchen, oven, hob, a sink and kitchen uten­sils, plumb­ing equip­ment, tiling and dec­o­ra­tions, a fridge, mi­crowave and fire­place.

“As well as all the do­na­tions, peo­ple have been work­ing for free by pre­par­ing the room, paint­ing and dec­o­rat­ing, fit­ting a kitchen and plumb­ing and elec­tri­cal work. All the sup­port we have re­ceived has been amaz­ing, and it was great to see all the lo­cal busi­nesses, big and small, par­ents and friends of the school of­fer­ing their sup­port to­wards the well­be­ing of our pupils.”

Cllr Sel­wyn Grif­fiths, who is also one of the school’s gov­er­nors added: “It’s great to see this new ‘Nur­ture Room’ open.

“It’s proven that nur­ture groups like this have a pos­i­tive ef­fect on per­sonal de­vel­op­ment in chil­dren.

“We are very grate­ful to lo­cal busi­nesses along with the com­mu­nity for their very gen­er­ous do­na­tions, not only fi­nan­cially, but the time in­vested.”
