Back in the Top End sharing the work of SAF with Stuart Park Primary

Katie Kelly OAM PLY

It was great to be back in the Top End again where I resided for two years, to share the work of Sport Access Foundation and the importance of inclusion to the wonderful students at Stuart Park Primary School.

I talked and presented alongside Hon Minister Kate Worden and Hon Minister Mark Monaghan.

My Guide Dog Guthrie was definitely the star of the show. Mobbed like a rock star!
We need to make sure that those who need it are provided the support required so they are included and so they can play sport and participate.
I think one thing to always keep in mind is that all of us have different challenges in our lives and we need extra support
Kelly who has Usher Syndrome - an extremely rare genetic disorder that affects hearing and vision - has been a huge advocate for inclusion in the sporting sphere for many years

Following this very special visit, I appeared on 360 with Katie Woolf to discuss this appearance, about Darwin, Usher's Syndrome, SAF and more. You can listen to this chat below.
