Deaf School Mystery was the culmination of a history unit that two classes completed. The unit ended with the classes visiting Townsend House, the first Deaf School in South Australia. Deaf and hearing students alike, found visiting the site that they had learnt so much about a very exciting and interesting experience. The Deaf students from both classes worked together to produce this short film.

They travelled around South Australia meeting a variety of Deaf adults, which prompted them to think about the possibilities for their own futures. The movie won Best Junior Primary Documentary in the DECD New Media Awards and was shortlisted in the Adelaide Film Festival in 2015.

Klemzig Primary School and the Centre for Deaf Education is proud to be a centre of excellence in their fields. Our unique setting and innovation has been highlighted by local and national media on several occasions. You can have a look at some examples of our programs at the links below.
