Alzheimers Scotland Dementia Friendly Award
Moffat Academy are on track to receive the Alzheimers Scotland Dementia Friendly Award. Last week some staff undertook a Dementia Friendly session with Rachel Byers from Alzheimer's Scotland and this week S5 & S6 pupils will also be visited by Rachel.
S1-3 pupils completed the Dementia Friends training as part of Heath Week last year and S4 pupils will receive training in the near future.
Thank you to Mr McCutcheon for organising the sessions and to Rachel Byers for teaching us ways for the school to work with the local community and support the people of Moffat diagnosed with dementia.
