Adaptive Sports
2019 - Year 10 and 11
Rachel Hodgson

This term I have had the absolute pleasure of joining some of our Year 10 and 11 students in the ADAPTIVE SPORTS program held at ALAC on Wednesday mornings. EA Sue Vickers and myself were very proud of our ASHS students, witnessing them interact so naturally with others and playing a variety of sports with people with disability and their support workers. Well done to those students involved - they each showed a genuine kindness of spirit and camaraderie throughout the program, and we received many positive comments about their participation.

“I never knew there were good things like this in the community for people with disability” Daniel Toovey


“I learnt that disabled people are just like us but with a disability” Jedd Cunningham


“I learnt that no matter what you can do anything you imagine, and that I shouldn’t take things for granted” Mackenzie Sutherland


“Even when people have a disability that doesn’t stop them from having fun and they are generally nicer than other people” Jade Sypko


“I would a 100% encourage other people to participate in this program. It has taught me so much and I am so glad I did it” Hayley Norton


“I would encourage others to do this because it’s good, and it could be a potential job for someone in the future” Jedd Cunningham
