There was a "school opening day" in the Prefecture School for the Deaf in Takamatsu-shi, Kagawa Prefecture on June 15 to offer parents and local residents the opportunity to know the situation of a Deaf student's school life.

The school has a total of 39 students from preschool through high school.

About 90 visitors observed ten elementary children expressed a motion of an animal with the body in the lesson of the gymnastics. Moreover, in the English class for  junior high school students, visual aids, such as a card, were used abundantly.

A tennis ball was attached to the portions of the chair or the leg of a desk in each classroom. The principal who showed around explained, "It is a kind of the sound proof for a child with a hearing aid when a desk or chair and the floor rub to sound offensively."
