How We're Changing Lives
Paarl School is a school for learners with disabilities in Brackenfell. They are a star performer in the Western Cape for Casual Day. Casual Day ambassador Terence Bridgett visited the school recently and found that Paarl School is a wonderfully nurturing environment for the learners who range from toddlers to teenagers. Administering a school catering to learners with a range of conditions is complex and challenging. Learners are divided into streams, one following the national curriculum, the other focused on skills and training. Here children do not only receive an education, but they receive therapy, and are supplied with assistive devices, wheelchairs and other devices that assist with mobility and alternative communication. Most of all, they receive the very special care and love from the dedicated group of teachers, some of whom live on the premises.
