Demelza one of our new teachers has joined Melland with energy and passion for the Pre-Formal curriculum. She has already made a great impact in her role as Pre-Formal curriculum coordinator, supporting students with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) learn and achieve. Students in Demelza’s class learn through sensory integration and access a range of specialist and bespoke sensory learning opportunities.
Even before joining Melland, Demelza wanted to make an impact and spent her summer tackling the Tour Du Mont Blanc Challenge: spending 10 days walking 174km through 3 countries carrying a tent, clothes, food, sleep and cook systems. To add to the challenge Demelza averaged a daily climb of 1100m almost equal to Ben Nevis (1300m) and the cumulative total gain 10,000m!Demelza raised an incredible £440 to put towards sensory stories resources for her class. An exceptional achievement and a fantastic contribution to the specialist learning of her class and team at Melland High School.
