But after only 4 days here, I came down with the Australian flu, which put me down for a few days. Then Jim came down with bronchitis and cellulitis (again!); but we’re both on the mend, and were joined Thursday by our son Brendan and daughter in law Julia, who are spending their vacation here in Fiji.
Two of our graduates started high school this year. Vitorina and Jayson completed their program with us last November, and have moved on to the hearing high school with interpreters.Both are adjusting well, and have great potential.
We also hired a new deaf teacher aide, Asena (left in photo below). We now have a total of 13 deaf working either in the school or in the hostels. Rosalina (right in photo), one of our former students from Tuvalu, came to the interview with her. You can see why Fijians are known for their beautiful smiles!
