P5 visitors

I am so proud of the impact you are making in our community.
Thank you!

Crown Primary 3/4

Matthew, Georgia, Rory and Caley came to visit from P5 to tell us a little about their experiences working with people with Dementia.  Some of the residents we will be working with at Southside have dementia.  The P5 children gave us some good tips about what to expect and do.

You can find some more information about dementia HERE and HERE if you want to talk more at home about it.
