Yesterday we were delighted to welcome back inspirational Paralympic athlete Andy Barrow to DCIS.
Andy spent the day working across the school; speaking with upper primary and secondary students before facilitating a 'Teamwork' workshop with our Year 7 students. The students had to work together as a team to lower a cane to the ground with everyone keeping their fingers on the cane and no speaking! Quite the challenge.
Later, Andy spoke to some of our DCIS parents who were keen to discuss their thoughts around diversity and inclusion. After school the staff also had the opportunity to hear Andy speak about his life experiences and the challenges we face in society to foster an inclusive community.
Andy now continues his speaking tour of South East Asia and we look forward to welcoming him back next year.
