Fantastic school, teachers and students – this is so inspirational. The “star” of the videos is Nathan, who is blind. He is shown in class with fellow students where he is learning to cook and dance.  Feel free to share the youtubes below.

In school term 2 of 2017, Ability Links NSW invited public schools from across the Hunter and Central Coast regions to take part in the inaugural ‘Smart Art Includes You’ Challenge. More than one in five schools answered that call, supporting almost 1000 students to participate and go in the draw to win their school up to $9000 to build their capacity to be inclusive of people with disabilities. They asked for artwork that was interesting and original and which would inspire audiences to think about the value of inclusion. Under the expert guidance of Debra Goodsir, Specialist Teacher (Vision), students from Kotara High School created and submitted two great videos. The direct links are below.
