The Umbrella Project
Ormskirk West End Primary School, the first primary school in West Lancashire to join the ADHD Foundation, recently participated in the charity’s Umbrella Project by creating an installation of 25 colourful umbrellas. Each umbrella was sponsored by members of the community including our North West team.
The installation aims to create an uplifting visual representation of all the different minds in the UK.
This project is a great way to raise awareness of neurodivergent conditions such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Dyslexia and Tourette’s Syndrome, their strengths as well as to celebrate the ways in which each mind is unique.
Sarah Currie, Deputy Head at Ormskirk West End Primary School, said: “Our participation in The Umbrella Project is indicative of our school’s commitment to meeting the individual needs of all our pupils and supporting every child to achieve their very best.
