Hereward College attends the International Day of Disabled People 2011

Last Thursday (01.12.2011), students from Hereward College (Clint, Lea-Anne) have attended the International Day of Disabled People Event at the St Peters Centre in Hillfields, along with Education Enabler, Wendy.

The objective of the event was to increase the understanding of the issues around disabilities and attention to the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. The event also aimed to increase the awareness of the gains for everybody if disabled persons are integrated into all aspects of political, social, economic and cultural life and raising money for resources for persons with disabilities.

The event began with Coventry’s legendary Lady Godiva saying a few words about the International Day of Disabled people and then taking group pictures with the attendees.
Once this was over, our students wanted to take advantage of this opportunity in order to raise awareness about how Hereward College can help people overcome their disabilities and become a responsible and productive member of society. 
 
The students were responsible with preparing a stall, which represented the college, handing out the Prospectus, DVDs and promotional pens to attendees and responding to queries regarding the college. They managed to do an outstanding job of presenting a positive image of the college and themselves, making sure that the stall was looking presentable, responding promptly and courteously, and providing useful and comprehensive information to any queries.

Clint had the following to say: ‘It was a great event, very informative. I was happy to support my college and spread awareness about the great opportunities that future students can expect.’
