RUTHERGLEN students learned more about how people cope with disabilities during activities that celebrated inclusion.
Rutherglen High School’s All Abilities Day on Wednesday included wheelchair basketball, lawn bowls for the vision impaired, sign language and examining different visual and hearing aids.
Year 9 co-ordinator Ron Webb said students Jasmine Peatling and Molly Phibbs organised the event along with Indigo Shire Council youth development officer Annette Walton.
Mr Webb said the students responded well to all they learned.
"The activities were hands on, so it got them out and about," he said.
Para athlete Lincoln Budge spoke to the group about life in a wheelchair while Rutherglen student Kahleb Butcher-Wooten shared his experiences of being hearing impaired.
"The idea of the All Abilities Day is recognising different people's abilities and the positives and some of the things they have to overcome as well," Mr Webb said.
