Unveiling of a plaque at Heathlands school for the Queen’s Green Canopy
Akhtar Zaman DL was delighted to attend the unveiling of the plaque for the Queen’s Green Canopy on 26 May 2022, at a very special Heathlands School in St Albans. Also in attendance was the first Headteacher for the school, Mollie Kennedy, and the current youngest and the eldest pupils at the school.
Heathlands is a single-site school for deaf pupils of all ages offering both day and weekly boarding provision. The school has two departments: Lower (including nursery – year 6), Upper (including year 7-11) with some flexibility between the departments ensuring that a curriculum and educational experience suited to each age range is offered. Running through both departments is an emphasis on Communication, Language and Literacy; the foundation stones for the effective education of deaf children.
