On Thursday 9 June, Writtle College hosted yet another hands on activity day for hearing impaired and or Deaf students from schools across Essex.

Seven schools and nineteen students attended and enjoyed activities including willow weaving and pond dipping in the College wildlife garden. They were also shown around the art exhibition which was located in lots of interesting places around the main campus. Lastly, the students visited the equine and animal care units at the Cow Watering Campus.

Margaret Hopkinson, Communicator at Writtle College said: “A great day was had by all and some of the students have already shown an interest in coming to study at Writtle College.

“We were joined on the day by one of our current student, Shanice, who is profoundly deaf, and she was delighted to meet up with some of the students from her old school. She was a great ambassador for Writtle College on the day and enjoyed the activities tremendously herself.”
