No time to re­lax as Max gets stu­dents work­ing out

The Riverine Herald - - NEWS - By Lach­lan Durl­ing

TWIN Rivers and Echuca Spe­cial­ist School stu­dents were fin­ish­ing off a year of col­lab­o­ra­tion by work­ing up a sweat at Aquatic Re­serve on Mon­day.

The event co­in­cided with In­ter­na­tional Day for Peo­ple With a Dis­abil­ity, with this year’s theme be­ing ‘em­pow­er­ing per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties and en­sur­ing in­clu­sive­ness and equal­ity’.

Stu­dents were put through their paces by Fit­mob in­struc­tor Max Ogilvie be­fore feast­ing on a bar­be­cue by Echuca Ki­wa­nis Club mem­bers and the One and All In­clu­sion pro­gram.

Echuca Spe­cial­ist School teacher Lu­cas Den­ton said the event was to pro­vide kids with a fun way to end the year.

‘‘This is to show­case what we’ve done over the past cou­ple of months and so it tied in per­fectly with In­ter­na­tional Day for Peo­ple With a Dis­abil­ity,’’ he said.

‘‘The kids were there in teams as well as in­di­vid­u­ally, do­ing cir­cuits with medicine balls, steps and agility poles to get the heart rate pump­ing.’’
