We organized a nice Meeting for the parents on the first day of this month. After a drink with short eats the parents took their children home for the August holidays.
The family Golbach from Denekamp came with their 4 children for a holiday to Sri Lanka. The last days they stayed in our Deaf School. They were neighbours of Mrs. Barbel Kattenbelt, the Chairman of our Foundation in the Netherlands, who passed away one year ago.
Chathu, our deaf assistant teacher, married on August 15 with Shan, who is also deaf. Unfortunately she will not come back as she lives too far away from school.
A new Dutch Ambassador came to Colombo, her name is H.E. Tanja Gonggrijp. We will visit her one of these days to ask is she likes to be the Patron of our Deaf School like the last Ambassador.
The trainees from Agriculture started with their NVQ-3 programme on August 26. At the end of this school year they sit for their final exam.
We got 2 new deaf pupils of 4 years in June. Also during the holidays they came to our Deaf School for speech therapy lessons. They do very well and we see the progress!
