On Friday 22nd March 2019 we were delighted that the Leader of Ealing Council, Councillor Julian Bell officially opened St Ann’s new medical room. Extensive work was undertaken during the summer holiday to remodel an existing classroom in the Victorian building and create a bright, welcoming, fully equipped medical room. Access to hugely improved facilities has enabled St Ann’s excellent nursing team, to even better meet the complex medical needs of our young people. Professor Shahid Khan (Parent Governor) made the keynote speech. However as always the contributions of adults was eclipsed by the sheer exuberance and enthusiasm of St Ann’s students, particularly during their rendition of ‘We’ve got rights’ and the especially commissioned, interactive poem, ‘Nurse, Health Care Assistant, Quick, Quick, Quick!.’
We would like to thank Ealing Council for investing in our young people’s health and in supporting the school’s work to systematically remove barriers to learning so that all students can ‘enjoy and achieve’ and look forward to a good quality adult life.
