Year 4: Day Without Speech

The Year 4s have raised $3000 for the OIC Cambodia Project. This money will go towards training teachers in Cambodia to support children with communication difficulties as well as help develop a speech and language therapy course to train Cambodians to become speech therapists. 

The Year 4 students and teachers were very enthusiastic and tried to go the whole day without talking. Ms Boysen even handed out certificates at assembly using an alternative method of communication. Students had a music lesson without talking. They used alternative ways to communicate during a variety of activities and lessons such as ICT, PBL etc.

Speech and Language Therapist, Melanie Yates spent time with the children and asked them what they learnt from the experience. Here are some of the things they had to say:

"I learnt how frustrating it is to not be able to tell others what I want to say"

" I learnt that it is hard to make friends"

" I know what it feels lie to not be able to talk to others"

"It is frustrating when other people don't know what you are saying"

Well done to Lucas who raised $410. 

Thank you Year 4 students, parents and teachers!
