By BBN Staff: This week is National Disability Week and Belize is celebrating under the theme: “The Future is Accessible!”
Santa Elena Primary School is the only primary school in the San Ignacio/Santa Elena community that offers special-education for students with disabilities.
Today, the staff of the primary school sponsored a nice pizza meal and Western Dairies ice-cream for students enrolled in the special-education class.
Teachers Celia Monroy and Yasmini Caliz told BBN that the sensitization and continuous awareness by the primary school has seen positive results for all students.
The teachers shared that the students are included in all school activities and enjoy games with other students at break time.
The Special Education classroom was inaugurated in 2009 with 16 enrolled students with only one teacher. After several visits by management, a second teacher was hired in 2011.
The classroom currently has nine students enrolled and the goal is to assist in transitioning students in the regular classroom setting.
Monroy told us that donation for the classroom has been continuous through support from the National Resource Center for Inclusive Education (NaRCIE).
The overall purpose of the theme is to embrace the inclusion of persons with disabilities.
