Dementia Awareness-The Archie Project (5 images)

This year Wilby School will be working on the Archie Project with Hartismere Place Care Home in Eye. The Archie Project is an exciting intergenerational dementia awareness project that links local primary schools, care homes/ sheltered housing schemes, businesses/ services and community members to ultimately dispel the fear and stigma often associated with dementia and create more dementia friendly communities. Owl Class will be completing a number of workshops in school to help develop their understanding and will also have the opportunity to go to Hartismere Place to meet the residents there and spend some time talking to them, reading to them and playing games or doing craft activities. We believe that this type of experience will help develop compassion, tolerance and understanding in our young people –skills which are crucial to the success of society as a whole
