Dot Sign Language were asked to return to The Royal Grammar School to teach BSL as part of their annual day of cultural activities. Lisa Duncan and Pauline Sinclair, both Deaf BSL users, taught sessions in sign language so the boys could immerse themselves in the language. They were interpreted into English. In four interactive 1 hour sessions the students learnt how to meet and greet in BSL, how to fingerspell and how to sign and discuss their hobbies. As well as competitions and activities, they were able to ask Lisa and Pauline any questions they had about British Sign Language. We hope we have inspired them to learn BSL in the future, whatever career paths they choose.
We were thrilled to receive this feedback from the school:
“On behalf of the RGS Guildford, I would like to thank you all very much indeed for your fantastic contributions to our third Field Day of cultural activities with the Year 8 and for your effort and commitment in making the event such a successful day for everyone. All members of staff involved in the day were full of praise about the different activities on offer and I only heard positive feedback from our students at the end of the day.”
