Rachel Shenton visits us

When: 24 February 2017

  • Rachel Shenton visits Exeter Deaf Academy

In February, our Year 7, 8 and 9 classes had an amazing opportunity to work with celebrity actress and director, Rachel Shenton.

Rachel is very passionate about promoting Deaf awareness and has written a beautiful film called The Silent Child Film. Rachel's film is based on a true story: A deaf child born into a hearing family and a world of silence.

Rachel was very generous with her time when she came to visit us. She explained the difference between acting on TV and acting in a theatre. It made us all aware how difficult TV acting is! Our students took turns and had the opportunity to see themselves on TV.

Later she visited College where she posed for photos with students and staff. 

Thank you to Rachel and we look forward to her returning to work with us again soon.
