Last week Saturday Arts Group participants won multiple awards at the Jack Petchey Achievement Awards. Jules and Sammie both won awards for their achievements in the Arts and Josue Lozano won a group leader award.
Sammie joined the group only a few months back. Unable to speak English very well, as she is originally from Latin America, she has been working extremely hard in her one-on-ones with our Spanish staff member Josue. As a result, her communications skills have improved enormously and she has been able to integrate herself in to the art group forming firm friendships.
When Jules first joined the group she was quiet and shy. She has since come out of her shell, getting along well with other members of the team. She has been especially helpful welcoming Sammie into the group! Jules has taken Sammie under her wing and has been helping Sammie improve her sewing skills. Jules also really enjoys making beautiful cushions.
