Alex Busch, Camphill School Aberdeen’s Executive Director said:
It was a great Open Day at Camphill School Aberdeen. Many thanks to everyone one that came and to all that helped. We were delighted that Councillor John Wheeler, Education and Social Work convener for Aberdeen City, opened the event.
Camphill School Aberdeen, which was established in 1940 and has been at the forefront of providing inclusive education, has helped to improve outcomes for thousands of children and young people with a disability and with other support needs over the years. The annual open day provides visitors with an opportunity to find out more about how Camphill School Aberdeen’s approach to education, in partnership with Aberdeen City Council, is helping children and young people in Aberdeen to fulfil their potential, and to make the most of their lives.
