Deaf pupils at Dalziel are given the opportunity to participate in an annual Deaf Football Tournament and take part in weekly training sessions in preparation for this. This is an excellent opportunity for our pupils to meet other deaf peers.
In February our pupils were given the opportunity to take part in a Football training camp run by the SFA. The event took place in Toryglen Regional Football Centre and included deaf pupils from all over Scotland. Our pupils were able to hone their skills and we even had some of our novice footballers picking up tips from the trained professionals.
On Friday 14 June 2019 two teams from Dalziel’s HID Department took part in the West of Scotland Deaf Children’s Society’s Annual Football Tournament. The Dalziel Senior team put in a brave performance and came second and were the highest scoring team of the tournament. The Junior Team also performed well, finishing a very respectable sixth. Whilst the weather was not as good as we would have hoped, all pupils were fully involved and made the event a huge success. Last year we started a HID Pupil Voice Committee where pupils can discuss issues which affect them in the school. From these meetings we voted on renaming the department, introduced a Pupil Passport which details our young peoples’ needs and had our first HID Day Out in Soar, Braehead.
