British Sign Language at Wallace Hall
Two senior pupils from Wallace Hall Academy took the lead in British Sign Language (BSL) this week, compiling and delivering a fantastic presentation to the pupils at Wallace Hall Primary. Through the medium of Microsoft Teams, Sorcha Corrigan and Hannah Kennedy demonstrated their interest in and knowledge of BSL at a virtual assembly to the primary pupils. Sorcha and Hannah did a fantastic job in highlighting how BSL aids communication for deaf children and adults.
Cathy Mackenzie, Acting Depute Head Teacher at Wallace Hall Primary School, said: “It was wonderful that Sorcha and Hannah expressed an interest in supporting our work with British Sign Language in the Primary School. The staff and pupils have enjoyed the girls’ input through the virtual assembly. Hannah and Sorcha also made an interactive video to encourage pupils, parents and staff to further explore sign language and this was included in our Christmas around the World video showcase.”
Barry Graham, Head Teacher at Wallace Hall said: “This is a fantastic example of ways in which an all through school can work together, even under the COVID restrictions. It is amazing that our pupils and staff can be so creative in such challenging times.”
