In addition, two students who attended the Deaf Camp last year will tell of their amazing experiences at the camp.
Chatham High School teacher, Naomi Austin-Campbell will speak on the next Deaf Camp to be held from September 11-15 at Camp Elim at Forster.
As the numbers of people with hearing loss is projected to rise by 25 per cent (one in four people) by 2050, as a result of our ageing population, Quota looks forward to seeing many visitors attending the session.
