St Elizabeth Hospice

We are privileged to work closely with St Elizabeth Hospice, Ipswich. Cedarwood pupils were the first to work with the hospice in a ground-breaking project, known as The Larch Project which sought to bring patients and pupils together.

Each year, a group of Year 6 pupils attend the hospice and work with patients to share stories about one another’s lives and achievements. Throughout the project, patients and children work together to represent their stories in a creative way, such as through song and art.

The project culminates in patients and children celebrating their journey at a presentation and party attended by family, school staff, hospice employees and volunteers.
