We would like to warmly invite you to our September Showcase on
Wednesday 25 September at Wherstead Park 2.00–6.00pm
At this event colleagues across the education sector will be demonstrating
the impact that the Opportunity Area has had for them and sharing
their experience to enable you to embed similar practice at your own
establishment. Come along and find out how your nursery, school or
college can benefit from the Opportunity Area project experience.
