We would like to introduce ourselves. We are the Auslan Team at St Albans East.
Sonia is a Classroom Interpreter for the Deaf and our schools LOTE (Language Other Than English) Teacher. All our students here at SAEPS learn Auslan from Prep through to Grade 6. She works here from Monday to Friday.
Paula is our 2nd Classroom Intrpreter for the Deaf, and works here on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
As Classroom Interpreters, we work alongside the Teachers who have Deaf and Hard of Hearing students in their classrooms.
We also interpret whole school events (such as Graduation, End of Year Concerts and School Assemblies), ensuring that our Deaf students maintain access to the whole community to which they belong.
We will use this blog to keep you informed of events and student learning happening in the Auslan department.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school and we will endeavour to answer them either personally or on this blog site.
