Story

Developmental Language Disorder Day (#DLDday), now in its seventh year, is celebrated annually around the world with more than 40 countries involved, and the 2023 DLD Day theme is "DLD Around the World", highlighting that DLD occurs in every language.

To mark the occasion and to raise vital funds for the school, the Moor House community will set off on a month-long virtual trek around the world, combining our collective progress and tracking on a map how far we have walked and what landmarks we have reached.

Our annual sponsored walk will launch the virtual trek on September 29th, with our lower school students completing 5k and 10km for upper school and college students.

The route starts and finishes at Moor House, taking in the leafy surroundings of Hurst Green and beautiful local countryside with a welcome picnic lunch en route.

Students will be joined on the walk by staff and parents, providing a great opportunity for the whole Moor House community to enjoy a day out whilst raising funds to support the students.

Every step taken by our participants will be logged and counted towards our goal of walking the globe and we are asking our whole community of students, families, staff, and supporters to keep walking throughout the month of October, logging every step on our simple form as they go.

Please give generously to our students undertaking this enormous challenge!
