International Week of the Deaf! 2017

Our British Columbia School for the Deaf wishes to join the campaign and promote the International Week of the Deaf 2017 that is raising awareness about the Deaf community around the globe.  The theme for this year is “Full Inclusion With Sign Language!” which “highlights that ​full inclusion of deaf people is possible when sign language is recognized and used widely within the society.”  

 We invite you to learn more about this global event by visiting the following links:

 Please also find attached letter of support from Mr. Colin Allen, President of World Federation of the Deaf, and two posters that you can print and help promote the messages.  

 BCSD thanks you in advance for your alliance and support for the right of ‘Full Inclusion With Sign Language’ that the deaf children and youth deserve.
