Sixth Form Enrichment Begins

The Sixth Form enrichment program has got under way with activities ranging from Spanish Conversation Club to a Debating Society. For the first time ever a group has begun learning British Sign Language Level One, an accredited qualification for beginners in sign language. 14 students have embarked on this program that will run year round, with training and homework tasks provided by BecomingVisible, a registered charity in Newcastle. The students started by learning the basics of deaf awareness and how deaf communities live and grow up, before moving onto some basic greetings.
