New Zealand Sign Language is Essential

NZSL is essential for Deaf people in education, health, workplaces and to be able to participate equally in society.

This year’s theme for NZSL Week 2022 is ‘NZSL is Essential’.

The meaning behind this theme is multifaceted. As you are aware, the word “essential” is well used these days and the Deaf Organisation is drawing on this to put a spotlight on essential workers who are Deaf.

It also highlights the fact that NZSL is essential for Deaf people in education, health, workplaces and to be able to participate equally in society.

To show manaakitanga, whanaungatanga and tiakitanga to our Deaf UC community and those with other impairments/disabilities, we are celebrating NZSL Week at UC.
