Team story

[p]As a school, going through the covid-19 pandemic was an unprecedented challenge and our students deserve more than ever to be the winners of the educational journey we offer. [/p][p]Valence School is a unique setting in Kent, providing education and therapy input for students with complex medical and physical needs. www.valenceschool.com. [/p][p]Lots of our usual fundraising events have been cancelled and we believe none of our pupil should miss out. [/p][p]Between September 10th and 18th, our team of 6 Valence School staff (with mixed swimming ability) will embark on the quest of a relay Channel swim. [/p][p]All the funds raised will go towards a brand new and much needed sensory room. Sensory rooms can help those [b]who have learning difficulties, developmental disabilities or sensory impairments, learn to interact with[/b] the world around them, but in a safe environment that builds up their confidence and their ability. Sensory activities are proved to calm and help students to focus so they can be better prepared for learning and interacting with others.[/p][p]Planning for this room is already approved and the sensory equipment will include:[/p][p]-water / sun / space projector (£200)[/p][p]-tactile panels (£80)[/p][p]-fibre optic carpet (£500)[/p][p]-tactile soft ball (£30)[/p][p]-Aromatherapy system (£120)[/p][p]-Sound system [/p][p]And this why, 6 of us decided to face the unique and demanding Channel swim, considered by many to be the ultimate long-distance trial. It is not just the gruelling 21 mile distance that is the challenge, but more, the variable conditions that we are likely to encounter (cold, tides, weather, jellyfish...).[/p][p]Please support us if you can and share around you; together we can make a difference![/p][p]Thank you, [/p][p]The Mighty Valence Swim Team. [/p][p][b][i][u]Thank you to everyone who has donated so far - such generosity is keeping all the swimmers going.[/u][/i][/b][/p]
