We've signed up for the National Foundation for the Deaf Silent Leadership Challenge as a school for our Annual Appeal because we've got pupils at school who have some type of hearing loss and many of us have family members or know of people with hearing loss. We want to help improve the quality of life for them, experience a little of what it is like just for a moment to be in a silent world and also learn how to protect our own hearing.
On Friday 1 August students and staff will take part in the Silent Leadership Challenge 2014. This will mean they take part in their usual range of activites throughout the day. However, students and staff will be wearing ear protectors for some of the day to simulate deafness. The protectors will take away our full hearing, which is a daily reality for the hard of hearing.
