Growing Potential celebration event

Students from Gainsborough Academy, staff members from Acis and residents from Pillared House and Newlands Court took part in an event to celebrate the Growing Potential garden project.  The event saw residents and students engage with one another taking part in bingo, a quiz and a group photo.

The Growing Potential garden project saw green-fingered students from the Gainsborough Academy help transform the communal areas at Pillared House and Newlands Court – our sheltered accommodation residencies.

The students joined up with us as part of the school’s Compass project, after we were awarded funding to deliver our Growing Potential project from IGas.

The celebration event saw speeches from Acis staff members and Gainsborough Academy teachers praising the hard effort he students had put into the event. 

Pupil Sinead Delancy also made a speech and talked about how the project had improved her skills and how she enjoyed engaging with the older generation.

Residents then presented both Acis and Gainsborough Academy with a collage of photos taken during the project. 

The event finished with a quiz that encouraged residents and students to work together and have some fun. 

Residents and Acis staff were full of praise for the hard work the students had done especially in the bad weather. Joe Timmins, Head of Homes at Acis, said:

“The gardens look amazing and the students commitment and drive from start to finish was fantastic.  They did extremely well especially through the appalling weather on the second day of the project at Newlands Court.”

The event and project was a huge success with residents and students gaining plenty of positive experiences.
