A unique two-part program that helps kids who are deaf or hard of hearing to make the transition from Year 6 to high school. We cover a range of things, from making new friends to dealing with bullying and simply finding your way round. Parents are welcome too (hey, someone’s gotta drive).
These one-off workshops all focus on a different thing – from film-making to treetop adventures. The common theme? Fun! (Hey, it should never be underrated).
