Well done Shelby!

Callum - 2021 Alumni

Callum's story


Callum attended Pond Meadow from the age of 2 years old, when he first joined Springboard Nursery. Callum left in July 2021 aged 19 to attend Beechwood Residential College located in Wales.  

During his time at Pond Meadow, Callum thoroughly enjoyed off-site visits and getting to know each person, in detail, that came into school and his class. He enjoyed imaginary play and going on all kinds of adventures when exploring class stories with his friends and teachers.

Callum's Mum and Dad are very thankful for all the support and friendships that Callum and themselves built during his time at Pond Meadow. 

They are grateful that Callum is now settled at college and works hard. 

Well done, Callum and keep up the good work!
