Happy’s Physio Room
Mason Lincoln (Happy’s) is a special school situated in Umlazi, and caters for the physically challenged, visually impaired, autistic, intellectually impaired, epileptic and learners with albinism. Currently they have enrolled about 290 learners range from 7 years to 24 years. The school has boarding facilities as other wards were converted to female and male hostels.
Due to a lack of staff and adequate facilities the Community Outreach Program Trust (COPT) got involved with the school in 2010. Since then we have helped with the general maintenance of the school. Recently we built a physio room and an occupational therapy room. Subsequently we have started running therapy classes with 35 young children on a regular basis – improving both fine and gross motor skills.
