The festivities will be climaxed with a Speech and Prize giving Day which is on Saturday.

Headmaster, Joseph Sam said in an exclusive interview with The New Crusading GUIDE that, attending the event would aid in changing the attitude society has towards special children.

According to him, being a hearing impaired person does not limit one’s abilities, giving an assurance that they do things marvelously which can only be seen if they were given the chance.

Subsequently, the headmaster is extending a public invitation to Non-Governmental Organizations, benevolent societies and the general public to come witness the event, feel what they go through and support them in overcoming their challenges.

Even before invitees respond to their invitations, Mr. Sackey of the Eastern Regional branch of Friends of Indian Society (FOIS), has pledged on behalf of the group, to be present at the event and lend support.

FOIS, he recalled, has been a regular contributor to the school’s welfare for a long time and expressed how happy they were with the school authorities for making special education an interested task.
