Horse riding for special students
Six students from Woy Woy Public School's Special Education Unit have started weekly visits to The Riding for the Disabled Association located in Kariong.
The association is a not-for-profit organisation with centres around Australia that brings together suitable horses and equipment and specially trained volunteers and riding coaches, to bring a range of equestrian activities which were previously non-accessible to people with disabilities.
The sessions give the Woy Woy pupils an opportunity to ride the horses and interact with the volunteers.
The students are driven by a bus that has been lent to the school by the Ettalong Bowling Club.
"The students love the riding activities and all students are given the opportunity to attend during the year," assistant principal Mr Dan Betts said.
