BI students reinvigorated by sign language
A group of pupils stuck at home because of the coronavirus crisis have used sign language lessons to cope with their isolation.
LaToya Tull, a Bermuda Institute teacher, said that the children had been able to bond with each other and former pupils through the extracurricular class “Silent Praise”.
She added that the youngsters from the Southampton school used sign language to express their feelings and strengthen their religious faith. Ms Tull said:
“I can’t even put the feeling into words because it’s just been so great for them. They have experienced the same hardships from this pandemic that have affected every single person, so just by them being able to call they’re finding that it helps them to address what they’re going through, and to talk and express themselves with this group.”
