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.
