07.11.22 - Diversity Continues
 
What an inspiring assembly given by Wirral's Deaf Society this week. Mark who is profoundly deaf shared his story with the children by signing and a big thank you to Vicky for interpreting Marks signing to us all. The children asked so many fascinating questions in which Mark kindly shared his views on from a deaf person perspective. Mark spoke to the children about working together to share awareness of others needs. Being profoundly deaf has not stopped Mark from being vibrant and fun! He truly was an inspiration to all. 
 
Well done to the football team who played a sensational match on Thursday! Superb sports people representing Brackenwood Junior School.
