The NDCS Roadshow was back at Mary Hare Secondary for three days at the end of April and Mary Hare Primary for one day before the Easter holidays.
The Roadshow staff with us this year included former pupil Mark Gill alongside Jamie Chivers. Over the three days over 90 pupils took part in a range of workshops.
This included a session on Online safety with our Key Stage 3 Language Enrichment groups and a session with students who had recently joined the school on “Who am I?”
For the sixth form the focus of the workshops was on preparing for life after Mary Hare. The My Futures workshop focused on options and support after school. The Technology workshop attended by year 13 allowed students to be updated on the range of technology to support them in work and at home and the opportunity to try out the equipment.
Comments from the students :
“It was good fun.”
“I think you are doing a good job helping students like me. Keep it up!”
“Very helpful staff and they introduced us to a wide range of products that could be used.”

Please do not forget the Technology Test Drive which allows families to borrow products. One Year 13 student successfully used this service to trial a ROGER FM system and is now planning to request this technology as part of his Disabled Student Allowance support for University.
Does your child have the NGT (Next Generation Text – relay) app on their phone?
If they cannot hear on the phone it allows them to speak to someone using text. This could be very helpful if they e.g. needed to phone emergency services.
