    Promoting inclusivity through signing course

    Hakim Hayat

    By learning sign language to interact with people with different abilities (OKU), the public can have the unique ability to exercise the collective responsibility of ensuring inclusivity in the community, so that no one would feel isolated.

    This was said by Acting Deputy Director of the Community Development Department (JAPEM) Mirany Floridzah binti Abdul Rahman at the closing ceremony of the second phase of Basic Sign Language Workshop 2021 at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas yesterday.

    The three-day workshop, jointly organised by the OKU Section under JAPEM and the National Association for the Hearing-Impaired (OKP), was officially closed by Deputy Permanent Secretary (Community) at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) Saidah binti Haji Wahid as the guest of honour.

    The deputy permanent secretary also handed over certificates to 10 participating individuals.

    The workshop was facilitated by Education Officer at the Ministry of Education (MoE) Dr Hajah Norbayah binti Haji Shahminan. The second phase of the workshop was a continuation of the first phase to enhance participants’ knowledge on sign language. The participants comprised those from the government and private sectors, as well as volunteers, parents and guardians of hearing impaired individuals.
