Carshalton Boys Sports College
Thank you to some Y8 students for inviting us to speak to them about sight loss. It was a good and interesting afternoon. The students participated in sighted guiding, demonstration of smart devices and activities using various resources. They learnt about various eye conditions and tried the simi specs to try to understand a little of what it is like living with sight loss.
They showed a great deal of interest and demonstrated good knowledge and asked very good questions.
Good luck to them as they participate in a competition to raise money for Sutton Vision.
