The festive period may feel like a distant memory however our young people moved into the New Year with positive happy memories of the Christmas period.
The schools, homes and offices were full of Christmas cheer and all had a great time. Our youngsters took part in festive themed lessons and celebrations at school including sitting down together over home cooked food. While in the homes there was more food, Oracle 'family' time celebrating together and the sharing of gifts.
It feels only right to share the artistic talents of one of our young people.
Our staff and young people are getting very excited. Now it is December we can officially say that Christmas is nearly upon us.
As with all youngsters, our young people were all looking forward to putting up the Christmas trees and getting into the Christmas spirit.
They have even themed the activities programme into a '24 days of Christmas list' with an exciting line up of fun, films and family enjoyment! Such a lovely time of year to enjoy being together and creating positive happy memories.
We even have an extra young person staying as a temporary guest at one home.....let's just hope he follows the house rules!
Remembering those people who help us every day, and those who give their lives to enable us to live in a safer world, was the topic of conversation and activities within our homes this weekend.
As an organisation we strive for excellence in all aspects of our care, education and therapy, the basis of which relies heavily on building a positive, effective and respectful trust between the staff and young people alike.
"Myself, the staff and the healthy environment around me”...none of which would happen without TRUST!
