13th ANHS Deaf Week

 This year's Deaf Week focuses on the stories of our Deaf learners.  ANHS aims to encourage more hearing individuals to listen to the stories of our Deaf partners, and to encourage them to mingle and share their own lives as well.   Our Deaf Week aims to showcase the skills and talents of our Deaf learners and SLIs to the community.  We hope that we continue to share our stories, learn sign language and communicate with the Deaf.

The Deaf Storytelling challenged the hearing contestants to retell a story to their Deaf partners.  Deaf participants retold the story to the Deaf alumni judges. The winners of the competition held last November 16, 2016 were, Deaf students Jeffrey Sarenas (9A), Jhasua San Juan (10A) with their hearing partners Vanessa Joy Julian (9B) & Wendell Altamera (SHS ABM) in First Place; while Deaf participants Denise Castro (9A) and Mohaimmer Badio (10B) with their Deaf partner Cielo May Relunia (9B) bagged 2nd Place.   
Our 2nd Deaf Camp was held at the Bible Institute for the Deaf.  This year's activity featured the skills of our SHS - TVL Deaf students.  The group did a cooking demo of two pasta dishes from their Cookery Class.  The event also showcased the skills of our two SLIs Miss Roni and Sir Rodel on two DIY activities.  The event served as a bench marking activity and interaction with our BID partners.

One of the anticipated activities of our Deaf Week is the SIGN On ANHS.  The activity was held on 17 November 2016 had our teachers teach and students (Hearing and Deaf) use signs for two periods.  The activity which was introduced last year, was an opportunity for the whole community to use signs in Class.

Gawad Parangal 2016

         There is no measure to the love that our ANHS Sign Language Interpreters extend to our Deaf learners.  We  cannot repay them for the sacrifices, hard work and love they have for the students. 
         This love stems from the love and grateful hearts of our Deaf learners in the Adult Night High School.  
        This school year, through the generosity of our principal and administrators, the PDL "dream" of finally having a separate award/recognition for the outstanding work extended by our Sign Language Interpreters in ANHS, has become a reality.  We, Mr. Noel (former PDL Moderator) and I, believe that through this simple recognition, we will be able to say thank you to our hardworking SLIs.  
        We are blessed to have such generous and hardworking SLIs in ANHS, if we can give them all awards for the "unseen" work they do, we would.  
         To our very first GAWAD PARANGAL SIGN LANGUAGE recipient, Mr. RODEL D. LAUREL, congratulations!

Mr. Rodel D. Laurel, our 1st Gawad Parangal Awardee!
