In an initiative aimed at fostering inclusivity and promoting sportsmanship, the Western Australian Disabled Sports Association (WADSA) recently visited the communities of Kambalda and Coolgardie. Students from Kambalda East Primary School and Coolgardie Primary School had the opportunity to engage in a session facilitated by the team from WADSA.

On Wednesday, May 8th, at Kambalda East Primary School, WADSA organized a session for year 5-6 students. From 1:20 pm to 2:50 pm, students participated in various adaptive sports activities, emphasizing determination and teamwork.

The next day, on Thursday, May 9th, the event continued at Coolgardie Primary School. Students from years 1 to 6 participated in the session from 1:20 pm to 2:20 pm, coming together to celebrate sportsmanship and camaraderie.

For many students, the session provided an opportunity to develop skills and appreciate diversity. Through activities like archery, the echobox game, nerf targeting, modified botchie, and others, WADSA created an inclusive environment where every participant felt valued.

The team from WADSA, including Tiffany, Jamie, and volunteer Nicole, brought enthusiasm and expertise to the sessions, fostering inclusivity and a sense of belonging among the students.

As WADSA concludes its visit to Kambalda and Coolgardie, their legacy of empowerment and inclusivity remains. Through sports, barriers were overcome, friendships were formed, and a message of acceptance and unity prevailed, inspiring future generations to embrace diversity and strive for greatness.
