STUDENTS from year seven at Waseley Hills High School found out about the obstacles facing the blind when Stephanie Sergeant and guide dog Megan went in to see them.

Despite being blind, Stephanie achieved a PHD in computer science, which also earned her an award from HM The Queen.

As well as Megan, she also brought in some of the items which aid her in her daily life, including a Braille keyboard, some audio scales and a book.

Nitu Joshi, Waseley Hills High’s head of PSHCE (personal, social, health, citizenship and economic education, said it was an inspirational visit.

“The students got to see how people with blindness can make their way round, how they adapt to their situation and what they can achieve.”
