Welcome to The Dr. Reijntjes School for the Deaf

The Dr.Reijntjes School for the Deaf in Moratuwa started in 1984 with 8 deaf pupils under the care of Mrs. Tineke de Silva-Nijkamp from the Netherlands.

At the Deaf School the deaf pupils get a normal school program like any other hearing child. Only the method of teaching is different. The School was growing so fast that new buildings were constructed with the help of Dutch Organizations. After 10 years the number of deaf children was growing to 100.

 

The Dr. Reijntjes School for the Deaf is depending on Donations to run this Deaf School. The Dr. Reijntjes Deaf School is totally free of charge and all the pupils get a free hearing aid of the School.
