St Catherine's Celebrates National Year of Communication
St Catherine’s students celebrated the National Year of Communication last week with a range of special workshops.
Students explored communication in all its forms with drumming, signing, body writing and joke telling just some of the activities on offer to mark Hello, the National Year of Communication.
The Hello campaign aims to increase understanding of how important it is for children and young people to develop good communication skills. In the UK, over one million children and young people have some form of speech, language and communication need, the equivalent of two or three children in every classroom. 50% of children entering primary school have impoverished speech and language skills.
As a specialist school and charity for children and young people with speech, language and communication impairments, St Catherine’s is asking Island schools to take part in the National Year of Communication. Say Hello for St Catherine’s is the charity’s initiative for schools, which aims to raise awareness of the importance of good communication, as well as raising funds to support the charity’s first class services and extend its provision to help more children and young people with communication impairments.
