Focus of fun day is on inclusion

CHILDREN and adults with disabilities will take to the water on Friday for a free fun day at WIRAC to celebrate Disability Action Week.

The day will feature a number of activities including fun novelty races and activities to help kids develop both their swimming skills and water confidence.

Swimmers of all levels will be catered for on the day, which will be hosted by Swimming Queensland.

WIRAC aquatic co-ordinator Karen Peters said the day was a great way for people with disabilities to enjoy the activities on offer at the facility.

"It's about inclusion and letting people with disabilities have a go at anything able-bodied kids can do," Mrs Peters said.

Mrs Peters said the centre's Learn to Swim program had a large number of people with disabilities and she said their love of the water was evident.

"They have a great time and it's a great way for them to make new friends," she said.

The event will be held this Friday from 10am to 2pm. Inquiries to Wendy Ross on 3390 2011.
