Making A Difference

MANJU'S STORY

For Manju, an Auslan Teacher with Deaf Services, her greatest reward in teaching is “building cultural bridges.”

Since joining the Education Team in 2017, Manju has taught many students the basics of Auslan and says the satisfaction of sharing the primary language of the Deaf community, and the pride she takes in her work as part of a team, has never waned.

“I love teaching my students Auslan, because it allows them to communicate with Deaf people in the community and in the workplace. I am so proud to be working for Deaf Services.”

SAFIA'S STORY

Safia works with the Lifestyle Support Services team to achieve her personal goals, as well as important day-to-day activities like exercise and shopping. Safia’s next goal is to practice her English to go to university.
