St Joseph’s School for the Hearing Impaired (SJS) is run by a group of dedicated Catholic nuns. They welcome and nurture hearing impaired children from all ethnic and religious backgrounds. In some cases, the students who attend SJS live at the school campus. They come from low-income families, and for many of them, SJS provides an otherwise non-existent opportunity to learn how to manage their lives as hearing-impaired individuals in a hearing society.
The curriculum at SJS includes language (speech), mathematics, computer skills, art & craft, music, dance and vocational skills (sewing, carpentry, cooking, etc). The students are grouped based on their level of speech proficiency. All the students at SJS come from an underprivileged background and SJS offers them an amazing opportunity to learn, build confidence, and integrate into society.
