Disability Awareness Visitors

Today we invited students from St Thomas into school to participate in a disability awareness session. They experienced what it would be like for people who had a visual, hearing problem, fine motor difficulty and also a mobility problem.
The students were very positive and joined in the sessions giving really good answers and showing empathy to different disabilities. After the session they asked for a tour of the school and met our students. They have asked if they can come in and join some sessions.
It was a thought provoking, fun session and we will be happy to have them come again. Thanks to Julie and Sharon for delivering the session.
