Vision and Hearing Screening Complete

20/05/2013

Dear Parents,

Our vision and hearing screening has been completed!

Slips for your child will be handed out to you this week.

Here is some basic information to keep in mind:

• All students have done the vision screening and should all receive a slip.
• All EC and KG students, as well as G1-G5 students whom teachers had concerns about ,did the hearing screening so not every child will receive a hearing slip.
• Both assessments/screenings are informal and basic. They just flag us (and you) that there is possibly a concern that needs further investigation.
• Should further vision/hearing screening be recommended, you should set up appointments with specialists asap (in your home country or in Dar).
• We will be following this up next school year.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions.
