I would really like to thank Terrigal Bowling Club and the staff there who provided a great Barefoot Bowling experience for a bunch of special needs kids from the Support Unit at Terrigal Public School, held on the first day of the school holidays.
It was a farewell party for one of their Year Six students who is graduating from the school but also moving interstate with her family.
These kids do not often get to have such events or do not get invited to such parties as they can be quite overwhelming with the excitement and commotion.
Indeed, it was the first ever children’s party for the girl concerned and for some of her classmates.
We were well located in a quiet section of the club and set up with a range of soft and lightweight bowls which were very suitable.
Raelene gave some very useful tips for kids bowling (no need to go the full length, and don’t stress over the bowls going all over the place), and James and the club were very generous with the food and drink.
This kind of community spirit and inclusion is exactly what registered clubs are known for and Terrigal Bowling Club did themselves proud – I’d like to thank them wholeheartedly.
