The School Council met last Friday with representatives from Wigan Council and Shevington District Community Association to plan the steps towards a Dementia Friendly School. School Council shared their concerns that many of our pupils have family members and friends who are experiencing aspects of Dementia. The School Council want to be supportive and to raise awareness.
On Wednesday 2nd March 2016 School our School Council will participate in training so that they can be ‘Dementia Champions’ and lead the way forward by cascading their skills to other pupils in school.
Plans are being made for a ‘Memory Walk’ during the summer where Dementia awareness will be high profile and our students will raise funding to support local support activities.
