Endeavour Foundation clients will be developing their motor and balance skills in new fun way thanks to a donation of a PlayStation 3 by Siena Catholic College on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
When Siena Catholic College received several PlayStations 3’s as part of a multi-media package, Year 10 student, Nick Royal was quick to ask if one could be donated through the school’s Community Assistance Program to his friends at Learning and Lifestyle Kunda Park.
But the game console isn’t just a toy; the games can be used to improve fine and gross motor skills, hand eye coordination, balance and depth perception. (Acting) Service Coordinator Linda Aitken is grateful to the bigheartedness of Siena Catholic College and the ongoing support of Nick Royal.
“The PlayStation 3 allows for group interactive game play which will be a new experience for many of our clients,” said Linda.
“On behalf of everyone at Learning and Lifestyle Kunda Park I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Nick and Siena Catholic College.” Principal Graeme Hight was enthusiastic about the donation and of Nick’s dedication.
“Siena Catholic College has a close relationship with Endeavour from our Community Assistance Program, so when Nick told to me about the benefits of donating the game console we were happy to help,” said Mr Hight.
“Nick is really passionate about making a difference for people with a disability, last year he did a fundraising sausage sizzle and he’s planning a career path in the disability sector.”
In 2011, Endeavour Foundation will celebrate 60 years of providing support, accommodation, training and vocational opportunities to people with a disability helping them lead an ordinary life. Learning and Lifestyle services support people with a disability to develop skills important to living a healthy and positive life like communication, literacy and numeracy, safety, computer skills and fitness.
