September and October have been extremely busy months. Normally the students of one year finish their course before the summer and in November a new year starts. But as everywhere this year is looking a bit different. The students of last year just finished their course. On Saturday they had their graduation, which also looked a bit different. Normally the students have a chance to show of their skills; the products they made to their parents and teachers from school. We all gather together and have one big ceremony and celebration. But of course this year we had to adapt so we could still celebrate the student’s achievements while staying safe and respecting anti-corona measures. All courses had their own little ceremony with only staff present. 57students graduated and we still had a wonderful celebratory time.
At the same time we have been recruiting new students for upcoming school year. The schools we work with give us names of students that might benefit from the project. Normally we visit every student in their house. This way we get a picture of the family and their living situation. But of course this year we had to adapt, doing 15 consecutive visits during a pandemic is something we wanted to avoid. Luckily we did get to meet the students and their parents in our office. This way we could explain the project well and we are happy to say that 49 students will start their chosen course in November.
