You might not know, but TSLA has a crochet club which meets after school on a Wednesday and Thursday. Members of staff who like to crochet and ‘have a natter’ frequent it. It started when people kept saying ‘ooh I wish I could crochet’ or ‘I wish I could make that’ and Mrs Dorling said “yes you can”, and set about teaching them to crochet. It started with making toys; rabbits, bears, etc. and has recently undertaken the task of making Octopuses for Scunthorpe Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). These are used with the premature babies to offer comfort and is also used to distract the babies from playing with the various tubes and devices which are there to help them. The crochet gang (Mrs Dorling, Mrs Borrill, Mrs Nottingham and Miss Mitchell) has made approximately 30 octopuses, which have been delivered to the staff at NICU . “The crochet club brings a feeling of calm at the end of a busy working day” one member said and all the others agreed on this. The club is open to all, free to come and drop in for an hour or ten minutes, whatever time you can spare, and a comfortable, happy, welcoming atmosphere. Come and join us, you might just enjoy it!
The St Lawrence Academy is congratulated on achieving the Humber Gold Standard
The Humber Gold Standard is a key element of a significant piece of work the Humber LEP has led on by working in partnership with the four local authorities and local provider network to improve access to careers information to raise aspirations and inform resident’s choice. This innovative work has been recognised for its collaborative approach on a wider regional and national level. The Gold Standard is jointly funded by Deflog VQ Trust and the Humber LEP and has been designed for 11-19 schools, academies, colleges and providers in the Humber area. To achieve the award, you have been assessed in eight set criteria, all culminating to delivering the best standard of impartial careers guidance to your young people and the quality of our Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance.
