A few weeks ago I attended the Glenallen School open day. Glenallen School is a specialist school located in Glen Waverley, for students aged 4.8 to 18 years who have a physical disability and/or significant health impairment.
During the open day parents, staff and volunteers were all on hand to illustrate the diversity of programs and facilities available to students. The student music group also put on a great performance!
Whilst the dedication and commitment of staff, volunteers and parents was clear throughout the day, the key message I left with was that Glenallen is a school which provides high level education opportunities for all students, regardless of their health impairment.
The open day also provided an opportunity for suppliers of specialist education equipment to promote their products and services.
I thank Glenallen School for the opportunity to attend and learn more about the programs available whilst meeting parents, staff and volunteers.
