Year 9 Support National Dementia Action Week
A Year 9 PSHE class were visited this week by Tony and Alan, who are living with dementia, in a visit organised with the Alzheimer’s Society to help raise pupil’s awareness of this issue. All year 7 and 9 PSHE classes have previously had lessons to coincide with National Dementia Action Week, and this special one-off session was then arranged. Tony and Alan spoke to the class about their experiences, and the pupils then had the chance to ask them questions. Both the pupils and the visitors were very positive about the session and felt that it had been a very worthwhile experience, with one pupil saying ‘it helped me not to judge people and make assumptions’.
