ASL Activities in the Okanagan
Earlier this Fall, Terry and Alana visited schools in Salmon Arm and Vernon.  The visits included ASL activities led by Terry, with an introduction – what it means to be Deaf, some tips and technology Deaf people use, followed by learning some ASL and playing the elephant game.
The visit planned to the Kootenays was unfortunately cut short by the devastating weather. We hope to resume visits to the communities as soon as it is safe to do so.

December 2nd Movie Day

As reported by the TDHHs Katelin Miller and Kerry MacLaren:

14 Students in grades 5-12 from the Comox Valley and Campbell River had an opportunity to enjoy “Eternals” on the big screen thanks to POPDHH. POPDHH helped us rent our local theatre to show the movie “Eternals” featuring Marvel’s first deaf superhero – Makkari. We were able to show the movie using open captions which was great for everyone. Students enjoyed the movie and it sparked some great conversation – they can’t wait for the sequel!
