Last week students from 11 Education Support Schools across Perth took part in an all abilities soccer carnival in Forrestfield.
The Kalability All Stars Sport Carnival is the largest interschool sports carnivals for students with disabilities in Western Australia, with over 400 students, staff, families and community members attending.
Participating schools come from as far as Joondalup, Rockingham, Byford and Swan View to take part in the event on November 4 at Hartfield Park Recreation Centre.
“The carnivals are a great way for students with disabilities to be able to socialise and these events promote inclusion and a shared understanding that everyone, regardless of ability, can achieve to their personal best, which is reflected in the Kalability All Stars motto: Disability Does Not Mean Inability,” said Kalamunda Secondary Education Support Centre principal, Gayle Nelson.
Through the Kalability All Stars Sport programs, students with disabilities are encouraged to participate in a range of sporting activities to promote positive physical and mental wellbeing, team work and resilience.
