Caring for the children involves a chain of activities; academic work, a routine of physiotherapy sessions to help them maintain physical balance, swimming and games. The school says the parents are often requested to be present at the physiotherapy sessions so that they can help the children at home.
Teaching models to help the children understand road signs
The children receive regular medical care by a volunteer medical doctor who has been a friend of the house for well over 40 years! It also has a nurse in-house who manages the sick-bay.
The children enjoy the craft classes where they are taught how to make the traditional tie and dye (Adire), detergents, footwear, cane works.
The school appreciates friends who take time out to visit the children to give them a sense of belonging in society.
