VISITORS TO THE SCHOOL
Deaf Awareness Assembly

On Thursday 16th November, Yasmin from Amin&Yasmin Limited came to Lady Aisha Academy to deliver an assembly on deaf awareness. She spoke a little bit regarding the difficulties that people face who cannot hear, and she taught us the basics of sign language, including how to spell your name and sign out various phrases. She also taught us how to sign certain Islamic phrases such as Masha'Allah, Subhanallah, and Allahu Akbar in sign language. Our students spent the rest of the day signing their names and speaking in sign language to each other!
Online Safety Awareness

On Thursday 24th November, performers from Arc Theatre came to Lady Aisha Academy and delivered an interactive presentation and a short play on staying safe online. Children learnt how to use the internet and social media sites responsibly, and were made aware of stranger danger. They were reminded of the consequences of cyberbullying, and of posting things online which could have a negative impact on their reputation. As Natalie Smith said at the end of the assembly - if you don't want your grandmother to see it, don't post it!
 
Notice regarding adverse weather conditions:
In case of really bad weather such as heavy snow, please check the school website in the morning for any notices of closure. Our most likely course of action will be that the school will remain open and running, and students should come in when they can, as soon as possible.
Thank you.
