Dear Supporters

 

Firstly we would like to wish you all a very successful and blessed 2018!

 

At the end of last year the school hosted a Reading Bee to encourage all the learners to read!  All the children embraced this and especially the little ones were thrilled to receive a beautiful book as a prize.

 

All our learners returned safely after a well-deserved break.  The pre-school children who started at Fulton School this year are settling in nicely.  Our Grade 1 learners were very excited to join “big” school and to wear their new school uniforms for the first time.

 

Our final year learners (Grade 12’s) once again did us proud by achieving a 100% pass rate!  They achieved 11 A’s in various subjects.  We are very proud of them all.

 

Your donations have enabled us once again to afford a needy learner an opportunity to attend Fulton School and receive the specialised education we offer!

 

Thank you once again for all your support.

Dear Supporters

 

All our learners continue to work hard to achieve their academic goals as they prepare for their final exams of 2017.

 

Our annual school concert “THE ASHEEL SHOW” was once again a team effort, the theme was dancing.  Our dancing teacher and all the children rose to the occasion. The grades 7 and 8s held the performance together with their hosting and guest appearances.  All the children thoroughly enjoyed dancing and loved dressing up.

 

The school hosted a very successful 5 km Silent Fun Run/Walk in September to celebrate Deaf Awareness Month.  It was a lovely sunny day and everyone who participated enjoyed themselves thoroughly.  Much needed funds were raised for our Sponsor-a-Child programme.

 

Our Primary School and Vocational classes recently had a very successful Christmas market.  Children from a neighbouring school were invited to attend.  These young children spent the morning learning sign language and interacting with our learners before doing their Christmas shopping.

We remain extremely grateful for your on-going support. 

We wish you all well over the festive season and a happy, healthy 2018!

Dear Supporter

All our learners continue to work hard to achieve their academic goals and continue to do very well in their sporting disciplines e.g. volley ball, soccer, triathlon and mountain biking.

 

We recently hosted the KZN Schools Mountain Bike event.  A large number of our learners participated in the event. Cycling is very difficult for our learners to master but once they do, they thoroughly enjoy participating at all the events.

 

Our Vocational classes recently had their market day.  They sold lovely handmade items as well as delicious eats on the day.  This was an exciting learning experience for them all.  The funds raised will be used for their phase.

 

September is Deaf Awareness month.  Our primary school is preparing for the concert that will take place from 5 to 8 September.  In addition to this we will be hosting a Silent 5 km Fun Run/Walk on 16 September.

 

Without your support many of these learners wouldn't have been afforded the opportunity to board at school and to continue to receive the specialised education we offer.

 

We remain most grateful to you all for your on-going support.

Dear Supporter

We are grateful to report that all our learners are working hard to achieve their academic goals and continue to do very well in the other sporting disciplines e.g. volley ball, soccer, triathlon and mountain biking.  

At the end of the first term we had our annual gala.  Swimming is one of the life skills we teach our Deaf learners.  As always everyone participated and had a wonderful fun-filled morning.  

Our final year students also had their school leaver’s dance at the end of March.  The school leavers always look forward to this evening. 

Our Foundation Phase learners (pre-school to grade 3) recently had their market day.  With the assistance of their teachers they made lovely eats to sell to raise funds for their phase. 

Our Junior Vocational Group made lamps and lamp shades combining the skills they have been taught (sewing, woodwork and electrical).  They are extremely proud of their end product.

Without your support many of these young learners wouldn’t have been afforded the opportunity to board at school and to continue to receive the specialised education we offer. 

We remain most grateful to you all for your on-going support.

Dear Supporter

Firstly we would like to wish you all a very successful and blessed 2017!

All our learners returned safely after their Christmas holidays and are ready for the year ahead.

Our intake in the pre-school has increased and we are so pleased to have so many young Deaf children enrolling.  It is always rewarding to see how quickly these little ones learn to communicate in South African Sign Language.

This year’s final year learners are hard at work to ensure a 100% pass rate at the end of this year.

With your support we have been able to accommodate an additional disadvantaged learner in our boarding facility this year.   She relies on public transport and often gets home very late and then still need to do her homework.  Boarding will ensure she can participate in sport and still have sufficient time to study as she is a final year learner.   

We are truly blessed with your continued support – thank you!
