Six months of support from families and local businesses for students with disabilities at Valley View Public School has culminated in the official opening of a new playing experience.
A separate outdoor area has been turned into a bright, friendly, space with multiple activities and experiences, including a sensory garden, a maze, a sunken trampoline, a softfall area, picnic area, playhouse and gym.
Bunning’s community program provided many of the resources and much of the labour, with additional support from community volunteers and local companies such as Coolaroo, and an additional generous cash donation from a grandparent. Mainstream senior students also use the area as role buddies for the students with disabilities.
