The students of Class X-A are aware that there are huge challenges facing the Deaf community. There are approximately 12 million Deaf in India with 80% of them having no access to formal education. There is a lack of right pedagogy and teaching resources which are especially customized to the needs of the Deaf in India. So, they are learning Indian Sign Language from the deaf teachers of Noida Deaf Society in order to help the deaf become contributive partners of society. This will contribute to a pool of trainers for the hearing impaired.
Visit to Noida Deaf Sociey for Rakhi celebrations
Ten students of class X-A visited Noida Deaf Society on 4th August,2017 to celebrate the auspicious festival of Raksha Bandhan with the students there to spread joy and warmth of this festival. The students of our school tied them colourful rakhis and distributed sweets. The loving children at Noida Deaf Society made cards for our students and also tied them rakhis. Both the groups tried their best to communicate with each other using Indian Sign Language. M Ruma Roka, the founder of Noida Deaf Society expressed her gratitude with an inspiring speech. The memories of this celebration will be cherished by all.
