Skipton pupils enjoy singing and signing
11:53am Tuesday 8th April 2014 in News
Two Skipton schools came together for a morning of signing and singing.
Pupils from Brooklands Special School and Water Street Primary School joined together to learn new songs and signs led by talented apprentices with disabilities.
Rachel Parsons, music coordinator at Brooklands, said: “Everyone had so much fun and it was lovely to see our schools working together while meeting new friends.”
The project is a partnership between Accessible Arts and Media and NYMAZ, with funding from Youth Music.
Denise Sansom, headteacher at Brooklands, said: “Many young people with disabilities often miss out on being included in the wider community. “
As a school we like to be proactive in raising the profile of our wonderful young people and such opportunities as this allow us to learn alongside main stream pupils such as the fantastic pupils at Water Street Primary school.
“Many thanks to Jenny Mcnab, deputy head at Water Street and Rachel Parsons at Brooklands who brought this together.”
