On February 7th CHSC presented an information session on becoming a Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to UBC Faculty of Education students. The presentation was delivered by our former Director of Education, Loretta Richardson, and two of our current Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Sarah Chodos and Jessica Costello.

We started the new year off with a fabulous visit from the Regency Auto Vancouver Team. As their selected charity for the last quarter of 2022 (October 1st, 2022- December 31st, 2022), they raised over $26,000 for the Centre through car sales and general donation. We are very grateful for all their support. What made their visit even more special was the fact that their manager, Izzam Ahamed, is an alumnus of CHSC, way back when we were the Vancouver Oral Centre. Mr. Ahmed had a great time connecting with the children and showing them his hearing aids. The children reciprocated and were really proud to share their experience with hearing loss with Mr. Ahmed and the Regency Auto team. The children especially enjoyed receiving their little Reggie the Panda stuffie. It was truly a magical way to start the year.
