Over 70 pupils at Bishopbriggs Academy recently took part in Dementia Informed training. This training gave the pupils a real insight into what it is like to live with dementia and also what it is like to care for someone with dementia. Following this training the pupils wanted the opportunity to put their new knowledge to practical use and came up with the idea of having four themed events for people with dementia and their carers.
The events are:
14th November 2018 – Remembrance Event
19th December 2018 – Christmas Event
30th January 2019 – Burns Event
20th March 2019 – Spring Event
The Remembrance Event, which is on 14th November 2018, starts at 1.30pm and finishes at 3.00pm. It will be held in the school, the address is Wester Cleddens Road, Bishopbriggs, Glasgow G64 1FA.
At this dementia friendly event there will be tea, coffee and cakes provided as well as Remembrance activities. The pupils will be on hand to direct visitors around the building and there is a lift and accessible toilet nearby. The pupils are making home baking and want to know how many people intend to come so if you would like to come along please let us know by calling Karen Heath at Ceartas on 0141 775 0433.
