Ten of Coleg Menai's students have led and delivered an exciting week of free virtual activities, targeted towards individuals with disabilities.
In partnership with Gwynedd Council's Disability Service, Llwybrau Llesiant, the Coleg Menai learners held the 'Wellbeing Week' between the 15th and 19th of March.
The students, who are working towards their BTEC Level 3 Sports (Development, Coaching and Fitness) Extended Diploma, undertook the organisation and delivery of the week and its' activities as part of their U23 Organising Sports Event Module.
This collaboration is in its 4th year, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the activities have been delivered virtually using the Zoom platform.
Activities over the week have included bingo, origami, quizzes, and a 70s and 80s fancy dress disco to close. Individuals from Day Services across Gwynedd and Môn attended the interactive virtual sessions.
Richard Cashman, Wellbeing Officer at Cyngor Gwynedd said, "This has been a great week filled with fun and engaging activities. Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed participating, and we're grateful to the students for organising the sessions".
Harriet Rowlands, one of the students who helped organise the events added, "These sessions have not only put a smile on the participants' faces - but also mine. Seeing the individuals enjoying themselves was a great pleasure, and I looked forward to holding more sessions with them. Not only did I enjoy teaching everyone origami, but I loved it when others taught me things about themselves as well."
