A ‘Lush’ learning experience for Chichester students

Written by Eleanor on 8th February 2019

Students at Chichester College were treated to a special sensory lesson with a difference when staff from Lush visited their class recently.

Representatives from Chichester store of the cosmetics company provided two interactive sessions with learners from the college’s foundation learning groups, as part of their Independent Living and Environmental Awareness education.

The students discovered how Lush is working to reduce plastic packaging and use ethically sourced materials in their products.

They were also introduced to various products which invoke different senses, including ‘popping candy’ bath bombs which released a golden lustre effect into the water and jelly bombs which gave the water a ‘jelly-like’ consistency.

There was also an opportunity to get creative with some pliable soap which can be used to make models and shapes.

David Turner, Deputy Head of Learning for Foundation Programmes at Chichester College, said: “Our learners enjoyed two brilliant sessions with Ash and Laura from Lush in Chichester.

“They really enjoyed getting involved with the hands-on learning, as they were exposed to different materials and sensory experiences which really sparked their imagination.

“Experiences like these are invaluable. They help students to build confidence and awareness as they meet with different people and learn new things through interactive and fun sessions. Thank you Lush!”
