ACHIEVEMENTS

Spring 2019

McKenzie Brown

McKenzie went through an extremely challenging time 18 months ago when the hearing in both his ears deteriorated rapidly and he was referred for cochlear implants aged 12. McKenzie had to undergo bilateral eardrum repairs before he could have the surgery and was unable to hear anything at all for several months. McKenzie’s implants were switched on in May of last year and since then he has worked hard to get used to his new way of hearing, which wasn’t easy for him at first. However, he persevered and has made fantastic progress. There has been a marked improvement in his progress at school and this has culminated in his English teacher contacting home recently to say that McKenzie is now top of the class! We are all extremely proud of McKenzie for the resilience and determination he has shown through such a difficult time and now know that he has the ability to succeed in whatever he sets his mind to. Well done, McKenzie!

Rhian O’Toole

Rhian is in her second year at Telford College, where she has been very successful. She has embraced all aspects of college life: she enjoys the learning and has established positive friendships and working relationships with staff. She has worked hard to assimilate the high level of technical and specialised vocabulary required on the course, particularly the anatomy and physiology aspects, and has also had to combat the communication challenges of working with clients during treatments - she is profoundly deaf and wears two speech processors - but has managed this due to her friendly personality and the ability to engage others to put them at their ease. She is just about to complete Level 3 Beauty Therapy, having already passed Level 2, which means she is qualified in a range of massage and facial therapies, enabling her to work in local salons, resulting in a recent job offer. However she has decided to continue her studies with a two year Level 3 Health and Social Care course this September, as she wants to pursue a career in healthcare. She is an excellent role model and mentor for younger students and a wonderful example of what a determined attitude and a friendly smile can achieve!
