Riverside Post 16 Pathways Class
Pathways have been very busy this year as they prepare themselves for life after school. The pupils in Pathways are given many opportunities and life experiences to develop their life skills.
Every Wednesday, they attend either the Bridge or the Gym. At the Bridge in Antrim the pupils learn cookery, woodwork and ICT skills. Once a week they attend the MET College in Belfast where they develop their ICT skills on Ipads and enjoy classes to prepare themselves for transitioning once they reach the age of 19.
They practice cooking dinner each week, go shopping to get the ingredients and further get to practice these skills in a school based café.
They have their own Young Enterprise business know as PUP (Pathways Unique Products.) This year they won two awards for their efforts including Best overall team and Team programme for outstanding teamwork.
Well done Pathways. Keep up the Great work!
