Newfield School Wheelchair Dancers

Newfield School visit the College

We were delighted to receive a visit from the children of Newfield School, Blackburn, to the College on 22 June. With an 18 year history of the students from Stonyhurst College attending Newfield School and its predecessor Dame Evelyn Fox for a weekly wheelchair dancing session, it was lovely to have the children visit the College for the final meeting of the year. After a quick lunch the children witnessed a brief but vibrant dance display by a group of enthusiastic Grammar girls and enjoyed an animated wheelchair dance before an excursion in the sunshine to meet and feed to ducks on the pond. We were very grateful to Mrs Crossley and Mrs Whalley who presented Newfield with a generous cheque from SHCT towards the purchase of an adapted minibus.
