Senior Up (18 + years)
Senior Up Club is held every second Friday evening at Middleton Grange School or in the community. Smaller group events are sometimes held on alternate weeks so that the Seniors can attend sports events, concerts or shows. Seniors can attend weekend away trips. These overnight trips (eg Hanmer and Kaikoura) are largely organised by the Seniors with staff available to provide support. The group plans activities, books transport and budgets for food. This gives Seniors a fantastic opportunity to develop further independence and organisational skills.
