The students of Newminster and Chantry Middle Schools have been learning to sign and sing songs ready to join the yearly Sign2Sing event on Tuesday 11th February. This will be done as a whole school and will take place in the Chantry School Hall during the school day.

We think this is a terrific initiative which has taught the children a new and valuable skill as well as raising awareness of deaf issues.

SignHealth, which is a national charity, dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of deaf people, are behind the event. SignHealth is simply asking for a £1 donation in return for wearing non-school uniform on Tuesday 11th February and taking part in the event. All money raised will go towards helping SignHealth transform the lives of thousands of people living in the UK.
