The Atrium in the Evelina Hospital School

What is it like to be a pupil or parent in the school?

    I am a parent of a pupil of the Evalina Hospital School who has attended the school regularly over the last month. My daughter has enjoyed spending time away from the ward in the school doing a variety of activities.

    In the morning she has joined the secondary department and played Maths bingo, learnt about Marie Curie and how to write a biography, and used an easi-speak microphone and learnt how to download the recordings onto the computer and how to alter and improve the recordings by adding and highlighting various sounds.

    In the afternoons my daughter has joined the junior department and participated in various work shops and activities allowing her the opportunity to listen to music and play musical instruments, do art and craft activities including designing and painting a t shirt, do some cookery including preparing a lasagne and a pizza, and she has also enjoyed watching the London Children’s Ballet perform Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

    When my daughter has not been well enough to attend the school, teachers have come on to the ward to read to her, play musical instruments or do craft activities.

    As a parent, I have had the opportunity either to take time out whilst my daughter has been in school, or to join in to assist her in the various activities. I have been made to feel very welcome and have very much enjoyed spending time in the school.

    Thanks for these comments Elaine.
    We are glad that you enjoyed being with us, though I suspect you will be even gladder to be home!
    B says you are right about the audacity software on easispeak. Not all our computers have audacity installed which is why we need to plug the microphones into some (most) of them to hear the files.
    Do let us know how you get on with your recordings won’t you. And if you have any hot tips and ideas for getting the most out of them please pass them on!

    Thanks I certainly will let you know how we get on with the easi speak microphone just as soon as we get one. I’m going to speak to Natalie’s teacher tomorrow and tell her all about them and see if the school can order some too.
