This school was built since 1949 and officially open on 1953 by Princess Elizabeth. That was before the independent of Malaysia.
We visited this school because of the coming JOTA meeting. It's really an eye opener for us!
The school also provide hostel for the blind students. There are 3 category within them. B1 - Totally blind, B2 - Partially blind, be able to see objects but very blur, B3 - Able to see things in very close distance (less than 20cm).
"Perkins Brailler" which is kind of typewriter for the blind.
We experience their life over here, the way they read, the way they live.......and also explore this very Old school in Malaysia.
touch anything that he never touch it before. His ear is extremely sensitive! I believe that's the nature of all the blinds. By the way, he's friendly.....and we ask him about his life in the school, his answer : "I'm very Happy staying over here! I feel secure here and I know everything here...." (He is belong to B1 category....) We just tell him that, we will be back in one week time........
Below pictures shows the way the B3 student study......do you notice the camera below the monitor?
Even the school located in the middle of JB town, but the surrounding environment is green by trees.....
