Northshore is proud to be a Telethon Speech and Hearing (TSH) Partner School. This means that we offer a high level of support for hearing-impaired students across all years of our school, allowing them to fully integrate into mainstream classes.
TSH exists to facilitate the proper education of hearing-impaired children from birth to Year 12. In partnership with families, they empower children to hear, communicate, connect, and learn, with the aim to encourage stronger communities.
As one of only four schools north of Perth to partner with TSH, Northshore provides real advantages for hearing-impaired students that will make a real impact on their education and development.
Whilst teaching his Year 5 classes, Northshore teacher, Kieran Turner has a specially made microphone around his neck at all times that transmits his voice directly into the hearing aids of one of his students. Along with other supports, this device, affectionately known as Roger, allows his hearing-impaired student to always be able to hear the lesson.
