Visually Impaired Workshop with Child Vision

5th Class students were very lucky to attend a Visually Impaired Workshop run by Child Vision on Wednesday 27th January 2016 at the Ark Theatre, Temple Bar.

All students were fully engaged in activities like learning to write their names in Braille, reading and writing wearing altered glasses, completing puzzles with blindfolds and walking blindfolded with assistance/walking sticks.

All activities were designed to show how things we take for granted can be for visually impaired people. If you get a chance, ask some of 5th class about their experiences of the activities you can see in the pictures.
