Helping Pheonix College with a residential school trip:                                                     

Pheonix School presentationWe assisted Phoenix College with funds for residential trip. Phoenix College is a state day secondary school for up to 65 boys aged 11-16. All students have special needs in the emotional, behavioural and social disorders spectrum. This includes ADHD, ADD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Conduct Disorders and lower end Aspergers Syndrome. 

The planned residential trip aims to provide additional learning skills for the boys, boost self esteem and help with motivation.  It is also intended to promote health, fitness and positive use of leisure.

The Lions Club of Reading was delighted to present a cheque to the school to assist with the costs of this valuable project.


 Helping decorate a classroom at Phoenix College:       

paint in handWe recently assisted Phoenix College by painting and decorating one of the school classrooms. Over two weekends a small group of enthusiastic Lions turned a tired classroom into a bright and airy space for students to learn in.  It was great fun and even though we say it ourselves, looked pretty good after we had finished.

 Helping Phoenix College to fund a Whiteboard to make learning more fun:

March 2013:
With financial support from other local Lions Clubs we have recently been able to fund a whiteboard for the college. The whiteboard will make learning much more interactive and hopefully more fun for the students. We were very pleased to support the college and to work with other Lions Clubs to 'get the job done'. The whiteboard is now in place and being used on a regular basis.
