NZ High School
Summer Camp 
for Deaf &
Hard of Hearing
 
Thanks to the New Zealand Sign Language Board, there is an opportunity to host a camp on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand, in the Summer holidays – 22nd to 26th January 2018. The purpose of this camp is to bring deaf and hard of hearing students from around New Zealand together, for many reasons, but most importantly to engage with their peers. They will have the opportunity here to develop independence, confidence and recognition of their own identity which will contribute to their lifelong success. Thanks to the funding, this camp is free of charge (travel inclusive) to all eligible students. Please visit the website for all information and for registration details.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 

           

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

          Woof! Woof!      
Pippa has become a familiar sight around van Asch Deaf Education Centre and Wharenui School. Pippa is Ann Croy's Hearing Dog for the Deaf, in training. The dog accompanies Ann  everywhere she goes. As a service dog Pippa is allowed to go to all of the places that a guide dog can go to. Pippa's role is to alert Ann to important sounds she can't hear, such as the door bell, phone, smoke alarm and alarm clock, by gently pawing her and then showing her where the sound comes from.
