Learners from Coleg Cambria Northop are excited to welcome colourful new additions to the site after sponsoring their very own sheep.

Additional Learning Needs (ALN) students had the opportunity to be involved in the Wrexham sheep trail through the Can Do project.  Leonard Cheshire – Can Do project offers exciting opportunities for 16 to 35 year old disabled people to volunteer in the community.

During the workshop, learners decorated Baabara the sheep and two lambs called Dai and Bethan in an array of colour and the college logo.

Coleg Cambria lecturer at Northop, Angie Dunn said:

”The students have worked hard during the project, used their imagination to create a theme for the sheep and had great fun painting them. They used various skills including communication, teamwork and painting skills to create three lovely sheep.”

Sue McGrane, Can Do Programme Coordinator added:

“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Coleg Cambria ILS students, from the Northop site, to complete this project. The enthusiasm and hard work from the students, from choosing the names of the sheep family, through to the actual painting, was such a fun and positive thing to be a part of.

“Ellie Ashby, the artist who helped with this project was as impressed as I was with the students’ efforts.  Can Do works with groups of young people by providing them with opportunities to get involved with volunteering and with projects that benefit their local community – the addition of the sheep and planters is a definite boost to the college community as it’s a wonderful focal point that can be enjoyed by all”

The sheep will be a permanent fixture at the site and will be one of many locations where sheep will be on display.
