Laughter comes to School Campus

posted 20 Jan 2017, 02:15 by James Dorey

The Laughter Specialists visit sick children and those with special needs, bringing interactive play, laughter and fun. Annie and Patrick, the founders, use laughter as a platform to improve the quality of life of children and young adults, working to elicit significant responses from young people with complex needs.

We were lucky to be treated to a performance from the Laughter Specialists on School Campus earlier this week, which the pupils enjoyed very much (as can be seen from the photos!). Annie and Patrick have secured funding to visit Columbus School several more times, when they will be working in small group sessions in classes to develop interaction and social skills with pupils, as well as performing to a wider audience in the hall on further occasions.

Many thanks to Annie and Patrick for this valuable work they are undertaking with our special young people.
