Spring School Holiday Program for 12-19 year olds

Date 20-24 September 2021

Time 9am – 3pm

What’s on

Working with Psychologists and employment specialists, teens will design and practise effective communication when seeking work and in work relationships. Skills will include talking about themselves - sharing the right things at the right time, navigating conflict, giving and receiving feedback and reflective practice. 

Orientation and Mobility Specialists will help build on their skills for moving around indoor and outdoor spaces safely and gracefully.  During our health and beauty session, teens will learn how to present well, from basic hygiene to make-up and hair styling.

Our specialist Manual Arts Instructors and an Occupational Therapist will assist teens to develop their skills for working with wood, and craft a treasure to take home.  And our Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapist and Physiotherapist will help teens develop social and language skills through games and other fun activities.  They’ll have opportunities to learn the skills needed to make and build friendships as they connect with other children with a vision impairment.  

What to bring each day

Please bring morning tea, water bottle, sunscreen and any travel aids or assistive devices currently used. Comfortable shoes are recommended.
