Here at Quest, our pupils appear to thoroughly enjoy Music and exploring different instruments. With that being said, we are very lucky to have recently appointed a new teacher who specialises in Music. This week, the pupils were exploring how to create sounds of the sea using shaker instruments and through this started learning about how to identify and create loud and soft dynamics and fast and slow tempo sounds.

We are excited to announce that another one of our staff has achieved her BCBA Qualification. Congratulations Maisie Wilmin! This entailed completing a Masters in ABA, gaining seventy five supervision hours and sitting a very tough exam. A great achievement!!!
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all our pupils on their hard work and perseverance this year. Despite the additional challenges that our children have had to face this year with Covid-19 still prevalent in our communities, they have continued to work very hard and attain highly commendable results with several pupils having earned end of term certificates for all their achievements this year. We have uploaded the relevant certificates on to Tapestry. We wish you all a happy and safe summer.
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week.
Here at Quest, the mental health and well-being of our staff and pupils is paramount.
For the staff, we are proud of our supportive culture, robust Mental Health and Well-being Policy and the comprehensive range of external support provided by our Employee Assistance Provider – Health Assured.
The pupils learn about how to communicate their emotions and are provided with tools to help them regulate their feelings. We also run some Yoga sessions with the pupils to help them connect to their physical, mental and spiritual practises in order to improve their mental health.
