Sign Language Course 2010

The RGS Sign Language Course starts in September!

It can count for Silver skill OR volunteering (service). 
It is run by a professional sign language tutor and takes place on Tuesdays after school 4-5pm and lasts about 12 weeks.
It is open to DofE 5th formers wanting to do a useful voluntary service or skill.  For those doing it as a service you will need to extend your activity by raising deaf awareness in school or finding a placement in the community (tricky in the past).  For those doing this as a skill you will find the course is sufficient to cover the silver requirement of 3 months of regular activity.
Sign up now in the DofE Office: any lunchtime!
