Description JULY 1961 Ð THE KIDS LEARN TO LIVE. SAED:SOCIAL:CHILDREN:DRUM JULY 1961 Ð The Kids learn to live Ð ItÕs a great moment Ð a deaf boy realizes what speech means. As he puts his hands to teacher Mrs MokhudiÕs throat he feels the vibrations that cause her to speak. Solemnly, he learns the first step in breaking his silence. Soon he too may be able to make sounds by following the pattern of those muscle contractions. Soon, too he will find a new way of life. This is the story of courage. Unusual human courage mixed with plain, unmitigated Bad Luck. ItÕs the story of 123 boys and girls, some of them deaf, dumb and blind, all fighting nigh and day to make life better than death. They stay in their boarding school-cum home at Kutlwanong in Roodepoort, less than 20 miles from Johannesburg. Yes, that is the story of Kutlwanong. Sounds grim. But it isnÕt. the kids who live there are perhaps as gay and wild as any other bunch of kids. They are rapidly learning to make their own world tic
