‘Kindness can transform someone’s dark moment with a blaze of light. You’ll never know how much your caring matters, Make a difference for another day.’ Amy Leigh Mercree
A little bit of kindness goes a long way and that was the message to students who took part in training to become “Dementia Friends” this term.
It is a well known fact that Dementia doesn’t care who you are; it can affect us all. Because public understanding is so poor, people with Dementia often feel – and are – misunderstood, marginalised and isolated. And that means that they’re less likely to be able to live independently in their own communities.
Students in our Sixth Form have moved towards creating a climate of kindness and understanding so that they can share their knowledge of the disease and hopefully have an impact on people and families who often suffer in silence
Head Girl, Amy Luscombe, commented:
“There is so much kindness in our Sixth Form, we are constantly working towards community projects and launching charity events. This is more than just raising a bit of money for a charity, this is about creating a culture of understanding and I am so proud to be part of that.”
