BDA Scotland's Deaf People Makes Glasgow BSL Trails Project explores Glasgow’s buildings and historical identify within the Deaf community. It is a fantastic opportunity for Deaf young people to learn about the buildings in Glasgow related to Deaf history.
Recently, the project gave Deaf pupils from St Roch’s Secondary School the opportunity to learn about buildings in Glasgow relating to Deaf history.
As part of the project, BDA Scotland and Deaf History Scotland (DHS) visited the school to give presentations and workshops as well as outing trip to visit former school building. At the end, the pupils gave three presentations: one presentation was about Smyllum Orphanage, St Vincent’s School and then St Roch’s school. The other groups talked about what it was like in Langside School in the late 19th century and early 20th century.
BDA Scotland would like to thank Glasgow City Heritage Trust (GCHT) for funding this project and Deaf History Scotland (DHS) for providing the presentations and resources about Deaf history and buildings in Glasgow.
