As we wave goodbye to the academic year, we have been enjoying lots of wonderful events to celebrate our fantastic students and say thank you to our dedicated staff.
After a difficult few years, we were thrilled to see our annual college prom return. Students stunned in beautiful outfits and we were honoured to have so many parents attend this special event. Our photographer captured beautiful moments and proud faces as students gathered with their friends and families at the Seashell campus. With luxury cars and limousines donated by Bentley Manchester and Together Money, our students arrived in style at the DoubleTree Hilton Airport Hotel. Decorations filled the room, and everyone enjoyed the delicious food, entertainment, and of course the dancing!
Our college prom was a great success thanks to all the hard work by our staff, who ensured that every detail was perfect for our young people. This was a great event for Seashell and we are very proud of everyone involved!
In our final week of term, staff were rewarded with a Team Seashell Staff Day, organised by 3 of our Senior Residential Support Workers, Sarah Ahmed, Danielle Dolan and Samantha Feeney.
It was a day to celebrate the hard work and dedication of all the staff at Seashell and reward them with an end of term party. Food was in great supply, with three different food trucks to choose from, an ice-cream van, pick n’mix table and a tower of donuts from Krispy Kreme. Entertainment was provided by a private DJ, and carnival stalls such as a coconut shy, higher or lower, hook a duck and the ring toss were enjoyed with some great prizes to be won. For those on night shifts and unable to attend, we threw a Dominoes pizza party with unlimited slices, sides and soft drinks, and of course more donuts!
The team put on an incredible event, with great feedback from everyone who attended.
This year we also saw the return of our school and college family fun days. Seashell Royal College Manchester held a special leavers breakfast and awards presentation, displaying photos and achievements of our students during their time with us. Family members joined us for this celebration—seeing the accomplishments of their loved ones filled them with joy!
We had a fantastic outdoor party to follow, with food trucks, outdoor games, and an ice cream van. Special performances from our College Rock Band and Polaris Duo, a harp and saxophone act from Live Music Now, captured the hearts of everyone in attendance. This was a wonderful way for us to celebrate the end of another year with our students and families, as well as thank them for their support. Seashell Royal School Manchester also enjoyed a fun-filled family event with a playground party in our school campus. Families of students, those who are leaving and new students due to start in September, were invited to join in the end of year celebrations. There was a bouncy castle, photo booth, food truck and of course the ice cream van! Students displayed their artwork at an art stall while others sold plants they’d grown during their time with us. Our brand new Learn to Ride cycle track was open to our visitors, who were able to try out different types of modified bikes and were treated to a special performance by Live Music Now’s Simon Robinson on the guitar.
A great day was enjoyed by all, and we can’t wait to welcome our students and staff back in September, along with some new faces!
