Free family fun day at CALL Scotland, Saturday 16th April 11am – 4pm run by specialist staff (CALL, FAACT, KEYCOMM,SCTCI, TASSCC and others) and funded by Augmentative Communication in Practice: Scotland.
This is a chance for families of children with additional support needs to try out and learn about software, hardware, and specialised communication technologies.
Our ISS@IMS pupils, who are based at Corrie House, visited the gym at Barrhead Foundry, as part of their SQA National 3 Wellbeing Award.
Pupils were given an induction on how to use all of the equipment, and then spent an hour on the equipment of their choice.
All of the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the visit and hope to now visit on a regular basis, with the school, and in their own time.
We would like to thank, gym staff, Hugh Coyle and Kenny McDonell for their input, which ensured all pupils got so much out of the visit.
