This week Killarney State School was excited to hand over a special donation to Warwick BUSHkids. The school recently collected money through a raffle at their bush dance and raised enough funds to purchase a computer program that is specifically designed to assist children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

Melinda Barling, Support Teacher at the school outlined that services such as BUSHkids were vital in providing assistance to those students, families and parents requiring specific support for their social, emotional, physical and educational development. “Community partnerships are an important link, especially for those areas that are more geographically isolated. Over the past few years we have had many students and parents accessing this service, with positive outcomes. Students used their pocket money on the night to buy a fifty cent ticket, which also raised awareness of helping others.”

The donation was gratefully accepted by Helen O’Connell, Occupational Therapist on behalf of Warwick BUSHkids during a recent visit to the school.
