Deaf senior finishes junior high school, awarded for full attendance in Aichi Prefecture

March 30, 2013

A Deaf senior was introduced in the daily column of Asahi Shimbun newspaper, "Tensei, Jingo (天声人語)".

Kohsaka Mamoru,73, graduated from the night junior high school in Nagoya-shi, Aichi Prefecture.

He lost hearing and was hardly able to go to school in boyhood.

He made up his mind, after working as a stone craftsman.

For two years, Kohsaka learned in the night junior high school with full attendance and won the reward for it.

He said, "It was an instant . When I didn't work one day in my craftsman days, my daily allowance decreased. It is natural that I was not absent from the school."
