Im­mer­sive pro­gram

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

THIS year marks the 10th an­niver­sary of the Nulsen Youth Pa­tron Pro­gram at Hale School.

Nulsen Dis­abil­ity Ser­vices chief ex­ec­u­tive Gor­don Trew­ern spoke to se­nior school stu­dents and staff about the pro­gram ear­lier this month.

Mr Trew­ern said Hale stu­dent Pre­ston Sud­low had de­scribed the pro­gram as one of the most im­por­tant he had ever been in­volved in.

“In his words, the true value of the Nulsen Pro­gram is in its abil­ity to im­merse par­tic­i­pants into a space where they gain a deep un­der­stand­ing of how peo­ple and so­ci­ety at large are af­fected by dis­abil­i­ties,” Mr Trew­ern said. He also pre­sented the school with a framed paint­ing by artist Greg Barr.
