September 2015 Recipients
Arohanui Special School were given $6,547.25 to purchase portable play equipment, including balance stairs, a basketball stand, and a trampoline.
The equipment will enhance the school’s social and learning opportunities as the students don’t often have the skills to participate in organised physical activity since their communication and physical abilities are challenged. This means teachers need to provide increased support and facilitation for inclusive play to happen.
Thanks to the Mazda Foundation the new equipment will help the students grow and play with their peers in an interesting, engaging and accessible way.
