This event is held twice every year to promote the public understanding of the deaf education. About 30 individuals, including hearing school teachers and sign language students, observed the classes.
The deaf children are enrolled from kindergarten through junior high school; ten students in total. Some children commute from Imari City, Saga Prefecture, a neighboring area, besides northern cities in the Nagasaki prefecture such as Sasebo City and Saza-cho, too.
The theme of the kindergarten class was to make animals with the paper clay, etc. The children visited the city subtropics flora and fauna garden on the previous day, and made animals such as giraffes and elephants that impressed them.
Moreover, the elementary school children had a physical education class and the drawing and manual arts class, respectively, while there were a science class and a social studies class for the junior high school students.
The school plans to hold a "presentation day" on November 9. The children will demonstrate a play and the chorus.
The school also offers the counseling service related to deafness at any time.
