The Post 16 students of Fairfield School launched their new venture 'The Mug Shot' right here in school. Parents, Carers and visitors are most welcome to drop in for a tea or coffee and a nice slice of homemade cake.
The cafe provides our students with a realistic work experience opportunity in a safe environment. The students gain skills and experience in communication whilst interacting with customers, taking orders, answering questions, responding to customer requests and occasional complaints. Students have the opportunity to handle money and operate the till. It's also an ideal place to practice independent living tasks such as cleaning and washing up. At the end of the sessions, students spend time reviewing how well the cafe is running and have made suggestions on how the cafe could be improved, considering any problems that have occurred during the cafe session, and taking in to account any comments given by customers.
The cafe has been a success so far and the students have been thoroughly enjoying it, thank you to everyone who has visited so far. We hope you will keep coming and share your comments and ideas with us, as well as the occasional bit of gossip on the side!
The Cafe is open from 10am - 11:45am on Wednesdays.
Please come and support our students.
