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.
