We have our own mini business called High Flyers Gadgets. The gadgets are small items that make life easier for those with physical problems and the elderly -like aids to open tin cans and bottles easily and bath mats to stop you slipping in the bath. We can all do different jobs in our 'business'. Some of us can parcel things up, some of us can sort out the money, and some of us can order things on the phone. We are a talented lot!
Gadgets
We love horse riding and even our members who need wheelchairs can join in. Cleaning up after the horses isn't quite as much fun,
Horseriding
We enjoy learning on our computers and have worked on this website. We have a High Flyers face book, blog and twitter accounts, which have all our latest news. We have learnt about Microsoft Office programmes, image/sound/video editing programmes and we have art and Makaton programmes on our ipads.
IT Skills
We like going exploring at Baggeridge and Cannock chase. We have done a lot of work at Wildside and Step-out. During our Bushcraft sessions we have learnt everything from making shelters to looking after our environment, but best of all was cooking outside!
The World Around Us
We have an annual holiday to Butlins at Minehead. We don't know why but the staff don't think it's a holiday! We have a great time especially at the night time disco. Also, this year some of us tried a night of camping and we want to do it loads more!
Annual Holiday and Camping
We love going on trips out and we suggest different places to go. Our last trip was to Cadbury world. Very tasty.
Outings
We have our own rabbit called Biscuit, giant snails and some fish. Each spring we have an incubator and watch chicks come out from their eggs. We have had lots of people bringing animals and birds for us to see them and we have taken part in 'Zoo keeper' days.
All creatures great, small and smaller
We like to help our local community. We do things like helping in charity shops, looking after the village planters, going on litter picks, and growing bulbs for the Rotary club. We performed sketches and sing and sign at different events. The last one we did was at the Shine event at Brierley Hill civic hall
Our Community
We are an energetic lot and when the weather is good we play tennis on the local tennis courts, cricket at a local sports ground, outdoor bowls, football, and have golf training too. We have done cycle training and have adapted bikes we can use. We also like swimming, canoeing, archery and some of us even like abseiling
Sports
We have fun at our weekly drama and dance sessions with the Side by Side theatre company and those that want to can join in their week long production at Stourbridge town hall. We also have music sessions every week and have our own choir that sing and sign.
Dance Drama and Music
We still manage to fit this into our timetable but do it in a fun way. One of the things we do is a weekly topical project which we research then share what we have learnt. With our staff to help us we do jobs around Pegasus house including cooking and ironing and our next task is to learn how to do High Flyers shopping on the internet.
Education & life skills
We also look after are own garden where we grow fruit and vegetables to eat. Then we get to cook and eat them. We are really good at gardening. We grow lots of our own vegetables and cook them to go with our lunches.
Gardening
We don't just draw and paint - we have done animation, sowing, and even made a giant flying horse and tissue paper elephant!
