Schools for the Deaf

There are approximately 44 schools for the Deaf in South Africa, two of them situated in the Free State, namely Bartimea School for the Deaf and Blind in Thaba Nchu and Thiboloha School for the Deaf and Blind in Qwaqwa.

Sign Language is offered as subject (first language) in schools for the Deaf and Sign Language is used as medium of instruction.

Bartimea School for the Deaf is situated approximately 65 kilometres from Bloemfontein, which makes it easy for students studying SASL to visit the school on a regular basis. SASL students are given the opportunity to interact with the children in Sign Language, which is a learning opportunity for both the SASL students and the Deaf children.
