Noluthando School for the Deaf, in Khayelitsha, received six new classrooms on Friday 22 November.The new rooms, which have been funded by the Rotary Club of Newlands (RCN) and the Coca Cola Peninsula Beverages (CCPB), are specifically designed for learners with autism. They are valued at R3.3 million and will cater for 48 to 60 learners.School principal Ayanda Ncinane said the classrooms will help them to create a centre of excellence. “Our classes are overcrowded. We have about 11 or 12 learners in each class when we are supposed to have eight,” he said.Ncinane said it will now be easy for teachers as the new classrooms will reduce the number of learners per class.Rotarian John Winship said they believe in helping others and where there is a need. He said it is rewarding to see people on the ground benefit when organisations come together. CCPB’s commercial director John Joubert said they are glad to be celebrating with the school and that they want to refresh and add value in their communities.He said they have a strong corporate social investment as a company which focuses on early childhood development.
