FinalistsThe Auckland academy are finalists in the NZSL Accessible Service Award given to organisations who have shown an outstanding commitment to the deaf community....
The Auckland Academy worked with their deaf student Reina Hetland and had a "Voice Down" day. In preparation for this the Site Manager and the Principal Tutor had a meeting with Deaf Aotearoa and the Team from I Sign NZ. The day caused a lot of interest among the college and the media. As a result of this day Reina was nominated for a very prestigious award the Magnet Youth Award. This is an award that recognises deaf or hearing impaired leaders who motivate others, have overcome significant challenges and is a strong advocate for NZSL. The Academy was also nominated for an award, the NZSL Accessible Service Award. Reina is loving being at the Academy and she is enjoying the course. Once she has achieved the Elementary Course she will enroll in the Advanced Course and we will continue to work with Workbridge and I Sign.
