  • About Mary Chapman

    Without Miss Mary Chapman’s unique vision,
    there would have never been a great school for the deaf in Yangon.

    The Mary Chapman School for the Deaf was founded in 1918 by a British lady, Ms. Mary Chapman, who was interested in the education and sustainable welfare of the deaf children and children with hearing impairment. The school started in a house on Shan Road, Sanchaung, Yangon, but later on in 1920, the existing compound was purchased by Ms. Mary Chapman out of her personal funds. Ms. Mary Chapman’s aim was to open a Teachers Training College and School for the Deaf.

    In 1966 when the missionaries left the country, this School was handed over to the Church of the Province of Myanmar and continued to function under the supervision and guidance of the Archbisoph of the Church of the Province of Myanmar (The Anglican Church).

    Fun Fact:
    Mary Chapman School for the Deaf is the first and oldest of the country’s three schools for the deaf.
