Story Rashida Hassanali

The Lego Club at Firs Hill School was included as part of a volunteering showcase for the Queen’s visit to Sheffield on 19th November.

Children and parents from Firs Hill showed how lego overcomes cultural and gender barriers, improves children's fine motor skills and lets their imaginations go wild!

The Queen also saw a demonstration of the great contribution that student volunteers from Sheffield University have been making in our local schools for the past two years, bringing the aspiration to go to University ever closer and making it more accessible. The project has also developed to include sessions at St Catherines, Byron Wood and from January, Owler Brook.

Two Firs Hill students presented the Queen with flowers, and parents and children alike were very excited to be meeting a Royal for the first time! Children from Byron Wood and St Catherines were also at the Cathedral for the Royal Visit as part of the ‘Sing It’.
