Special visit to HFSD by the Education Committee in the Oireachtas
Category : Post Primary
We were delighted to welcome members of the Education committee in the Oireachtas to visit the three sections of our school today – Post Primary, Primary and Early Intervention. During the visit, the members of the Joint Committee were able to witness the challenges that our students and staff face on a daily basis due to the inadequate school building and impractical location. They saw first-hand the limited space and facilities that hinder our students’ learning experience.
They enjoyed meeting the staff and students in our school and commented we have a wonderful ‘vibe’ friendly atmosphere. It was great to have the opportunity to showcase our schools and demonstrate the pressing need for improvement. With the support of the Joint Committee and TDs, we are hopeful that our dream of a new, purpose-built building will become a reality in the near future. This would not only benefit our current students but also future generations of deaf students, ensuring they have equal access to excellent quality deaf education.
