In a year full of challenges, it ended on a high note for nine-year-old, Grace.

The year three student was awarded her primary school’s Chairperson’s Award, recognising her impressive academic achievements and progress across all school subjects throughout the past 12 months.

Proud grandmother, Margaret noted that it was a very exciting acknowledgement of Grace’s diligence and hard work, and a shining demonstration of a young person living life unlimited by their hearing loss.

Born profoundly deaf in both ears, Grace uses two cochlear implants to hear – as do two of her older siblings, who both attended Hear and Say prior to their family relocating interstate.

Congratulations, Grace – and here’s to a successful school year ahead for all our Hear and Say families.
