TWO young people from Doncaster Deaf Social Club have been teaching Pegasus explorer scouts the basics of British Sign Language (BSL).

Barry, a student at Communication Specialist College Doncaster, and Megan, who works at Little Learners Day Nursery, both attend Doncaster Deaf Social Club.

The pair have been working to teach the explorer scout group in Doncaster about deaf awareness and given a valuable insight into life as a deaf person.  

Megan showed her cochlear implant and explained how it felt to be deaf.

The explorers learnt basic BSL greetings, as well as how to sign family members, the alphabet and numbers.

The training finished with a fun game of BSL bingo.

Barry said: “It was great to share our knowledge with the explorers where I attend, and we hope that what we have taught them will help them to communicate better with deaf people.

“We want to say a huge thank you to the explorer scout group for inviting us to provide the deaf awareness training.”
