Enjoying Learning Together

Bournemouth Blind Society

We recently had our Arts week which was a real success. The week was kicked off with a visit from The Bournemouth Blind Society. Philip talked to the children about what his job and how his charity supports blind people in the community. They bought some fantastic tactile art that had either been made by people who are blind and enjoy or for them. Jean shared her experiences about being blind and how this helps her to experience art through touch and sound. She was a real inspiration and told us about how she helps sail tall ships, does archery lessons and  even skydiving through the charity. Amazing!
