Communication and care activities

We had a visit from Theresa from Hull CC/Endeavour today; she had the Year 10 Health and Social Care pupils participating in communication and care activities. They were experiencing for themselves what it was like to have eye and balance conditions such as macular degeneration, blindness and vertigo.

The pupils guided each other around various obstacles while wearing glasses that simulated a range of issues affecting sight, helping them to understand how someone who is vulnerable in this way might feel while going about their daily lives. They then tried to ‘walk the line’ while wearing ‘beer goggles’, simulating the experience of some vertigo sufferers – some of our pupils were more successful than others!
