  1. Did anybody see this segment on Blue Peter? Mwaksy takes a look into how BSL is a lifeline to most deaf or hard of hearing people. She visits a theatre group in Cardiff which consists of children between the ages of 3-18 who communicate via BSL. Mwaksy chats to the children and finds out how this group has empowered them as individuals, highlighting the importance of groups like these. She wants to bring the empowerment back to the Blue Peter Studio, so she is set the challenge of learning BSL in order to present a segment of the show, live on CBBC.
  2. An article in The Independent a few days ago that shares the news that the government is "open to considering" a new GCSE in British Sign Language. This came after 35,000 signatures were collected in a campaign to see BSL taught more widely in schools. You can read the full article here: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/education/education-news/british-sign-language-gcse-government-nick-gibb-campaign-school-a8377466.html
  3. A lovely suprise for this couple when they realised that the stewardess on their Philippine Airlines flight could sign! Wouldn't it be wonderful to see more of this kind of inclusion everywhere. Great customer service.
