International Day of People with Disability
International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations sanctioned day that aims to promote an understanding of people with disability and encourage support for their dignity, rights and well-being.
Thousands of Australians came together to celebrate the 21st Anniversary of the International Day of People with Disability on Tuesday 3 December. This year is a significant milestone for International Day of People with Disability—marking 21 years of promoting an understanding of people with disability.
It is a time to reflect on the important achievements that have been made to improve economic and social participation for people with disability in Australia.
Halls Head Community College and Education Support Centre took the opportunity to celebrate by playing soccer and polo hockey in the school’s gymnasium. The two teams were made up by students from both schools with players engaging in a fun and mixed games of both sports.
Also during the week the students from both schools also attended a fun day in Seascapes Park to celebrate International Day of People with Disability with the aim to get involved with others, participate in a walk along the coast and enjoy a sausage sizzle for lunch. Face Painting, treasure hunts and raffles were all popular with some students having snakes painted on their arms.
