The staff is of a mixed lot which comprises of hearing and deaf but the students are profoundly deaf.

Currently we are confronted with transportation need for our deaf pupils who commute from different directions. We were one time supported in this but they are all now grounded beyond our means to meet their repair. 

Besides transportation, we also are faced with the need for classrooms to cater for the increased  in the intake. As a result, we are presently using the only exam hall as temporary classes for grades 10 and 11. 

 

This project is about provsion of school bus for the pupils’ of St John School for the deaf in Kanifing in order to ease the transportation challenges of students of the said school who are special needs school. 

The existing school buses are all no longer road worthy and hence children find it extremely difficult to go to school since the exisitng public transportation facilities are inadequate and in fact not ideal for the students of the school who are speical needs children. 

 

 

 

Current school buses of the school that are all out of the road beause they have served their useful life
