Kerala's first school for the deaf & hard of hearing to be upgraded
The Government VHSS Deaf School in Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala has been sanctioned Rs 20 crore from the state government for improving its infrastructure and facilities. This is the first government school in the state for students who are deaf and hard of hearing.
Facilities will also be made hi-tech for students in classes 8 to 12.
The Kerala government wants to introduce equipment to make learning for the deaf and hard of hearing easier. They want to highlight their skills through education. Children who are deaf and hard of hearing need more visual aids to help them learn new things. The Kerala government will supply all that to the school.
A master-plan to improve the school has been handed over to the government. Two new blocks will also be built. The hostel building will also be renovated. <</p>
