Students to learn British Sign Language
Deaf Awareness Week 2022 sees the launch of a new extra-curricular learning opportunity for senior students at Bridgewater School. The British Sign Language & Deaf Awareness course, organised in partnership with the School of Sign Language, is to run for six weeks through the summer term, beginning on Friday 6th May.
The course, which aims to provide an insight into the impact of hearing loss and the challenges faced by the Deaf community, also provides an excellent opportunity for students to learn a new life skill and develop a greater understanding of how to communicate with Deaf people.
Says Marketing & Development Manager, Caroline Saunders “Helping our students develop sensitivity to each other’s needs and the needs of the world outside school is integral to the school’s ethos and it is our aim that offering such courses as part of of extra-curricular and enrichment programme we can, as a community, continue to contribute to a more understanding and inclusive society.”
