Deaf Students Enjoy Great War Exhibition

A Newlands College Deaf class recently enjoyed touring The Great War Exhibition and neighbouring Pukeahu National War Memorial Park with Andy Glanville, an education facilitator. Joy Howard, a New Zealand Sign Language Communicator, accompanied them, translating Andy’s tour into sign language as they went.

Their visit featured in their local newspaper, the Independent Herald.

The Exhibition is well-suited to Deaf learners, because it brings the war to life through visual displays such as movie-like war sets, wartime objects and colourised images.
