SEDA students are busy preparing for the Special Olympics Australia Gala Day, taking place on Thursday 9 October 2014 at the State Netball and Hockey Centre in Melbourne.
The event will celebrate an integration of mainstream primary school students and all ability school students by raising awareness of the need for social inclusion and grassroots sports participation.
More than 300 primary school students and all ability students from eight schools will participate in basketball, netball, football (soccer), AFL drills and modified games throughout the day.
SEDA is an education provider that exists to engage, educate and empower young people as they transition from school to employment to further study.
More updates will be provided via the Special Olympics Australia National Games 2014 facebook page.
We’re very excited to announce National Games ambassador, Carrie Bickmore, will be our official MC for the Law Enforcement Torch Run.
If you are in Melbourne on 19 October 2014 head down to Federation Square to see the Torch Run and hopefully you can also join us at the National Games Opening Ceremony the next day.
