It’s the annual awareness week for the language that provides a lifeline for deaf and hearing- impaired people, and it marks 10 years since it became one of New Zealand’s official languages, alongside English and Maori. Among other reasons are dedicated programmes like the one run by the Nelson Hearing Association that teaches primary school children the basics of sign language (see story, page 7) The programme’s enthusiastic tutor Cathy Gutschlag tells of the lovely connections made between pupils and deaf people. Even a few simple greetings and being able to sign their own name opens an invaluable rapport between children and those in the deaf community. The pupils’ ability to learn and share also spreads sign language through their families. It’s a great initiative that deserves all the support it can get because it fosters such valuable connections and life lessons for all involved.
