It is great to see how the Cabin has become an essential part of our programme delivery at CANTO and an important part of some students timetable. Recent months have seen a cover added outside to help provide a dry walkway from the main building to the cabin and the creation of a small garden to the rear.
Groups on our Turing programme are remaining as busy as ever, and just to mention a couple which regularly support activity in the community. Our green project group continues to work hard in the local area litter picking and working with the Northampton Wombles to keep the area near to the college tidy. Elsewhere our Gateway Award group has just taken on a project that we last several weeks in support of a local country park. In is great to see our students getting out and about and supporting the local community.
We have had some additions to our outside courtyard space to help keep the students occupied during lunch and breaks. The all weather table tennis and football tables are seeing plenty of use from both students and staff.
CANTO students enjoyed what has become in recent years a tradition in joining with others in their keyworker groups and making scarecrows for an inhouse competition. It was very difficult judging a winner due to the quality of the entrants. Here are just a couple of them below.
CANTO welcomed back returning education students and new education funded students during w/c commencing 5th September for the start of academic year 2022/23. It has been a busy week as new students have begun to learn their new routines and we look forward to seeing the progress all are able to make as the year continues.
An exciting addition was added to the CANTO site during the summer in the form of a modular building. This building which will hopefully be up and running for September 2022 will be for those students on our day services programme who need a high ratio of staff to students. It will be great to see how both students and staff settle into this new venture, we are sure it can only be a positive development for CANTO.
Wednesday 20th July - saw CANTO celebrate student's achievement during the course of the year with our annual Presentation Evening. It was great to be able to have this event in person after having to conduct this virtually for the previous two academic years. All of the staff and students present enjoyed and it was great to see the CANTO Wombles recognised during the evening for the work they are doing in the local area to keep it clean..
Having not been able to due to the pandemic over the previous 2 years CANTO re-introduced trips week, which saw students have the opportunity to join in a trip during the week, choices were between adventure golf/bowling and a meal, visit to Twin lakes amusement park and a trip to Whipsnade zoo. Staff and students had a great time.
