Testimonials

We as a family just wanted to send a BIG THANK YOU for your support over the last year or so with funding the excess payments for Sophia's respite. As you would be aware we have been trying to do as much early intervention with her over the first few years to give her as much chance as possible.

The respite, gave me not only time to be able to do therapy with Sophia that required two people, but when I needed too, it also gave me the time to do special things for my other daughter Eleanor such as attend special school events with just Eleanor and myself which made her feel special too.

Sophia is thriving, attending Mittagong Preschool two days per week and Moss Vale Acorn Cottage Early Intervention unit, two mornings per week. She is now running in little spurts, her speech is increasing and although there is still a lot to do before she gets to school in two years time, she appears to be tracking well.

So, from us to you THANK YOU again.

With the warmest regards

Laurita, Byron, Eleanor and especially Sophia

Please pass on our huge thanks to all of the committee members, we really do appreciate KKKK’s generosity. We are meeting with Nel on Thursday and will discuss then the best way to keep the committee informed about Harriett and her progress.

Thank you once again.

I just wanted to touch base with you and the KKKK before the end of the year. Thank you for supporting the speech therapy program this year. It is greatly appreciated. The teachers are reporting improved confidence and ability in all students who participated in the program.
Also the students are still enjoying their Hokki stools which allow students to wiggle around while listening to the teacher and completing their work. I am also delighted to inform you that we have a new Multi-Categorical class starting in 2017. It will have students K-6 with autism and mental health issues in it (just like mine). It will be a fantastic resources to support our school and other students in the local community. I want you wish you a happy and safe Christmas and New Year. Again, on behalf of all the staff at Mittagong PS I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the support you offer our students.

Thank you for your ongoing and generous support of our Special Education unit at Moss Vale High School. We greatly appreciate your recent donation of $2,500 for the purchase of a Bocce set that will be utilised by our special needs students. Without your donation, we would have been unable to purchase this equipment through the Department of Education or our our limited school budget.
Many thanks again for your generous support. Kind regards, Patricia Holmes

Lilah is now using her beautiful new chair here at Tangara School to assist with her mobility program.

Tangara students now have 5 new iPads that the teachers are using to support communication programs with their students and very soon we will have an in-ground trampoline.

A big thank you to everyone for all you do to support these very expensive resources for the benefit of children with special needs in the Wingecarribee Shire.


Thank you so much for your support !! I’m having lots of fun with the new games. The games are helping me practise the eye gaze for communication. Thanks again from Lois, Laura and Taylor

On behalf of all the staff and students at Mittagong Public School I would like to say a very big thank you for funding our speech therapy sessions during 2016.

The speech pathologists, Ellie and Maddie, have worked so hard with our students from Kindergarten, Year One and Two. Through your funding they have been able to assist a total of 24 students in developing language skills including articulation of sounds, receptive and expressive skills. A pre and post test was conducted on each student in the program. These assessments showed a marked improvement in most of the sub skills which were being taught.

The students especially enjoyed playing games which fostered the development of these skills. Some of our Year Two students wanted to send messages of appreciation to Ellie. I thought you may like to view some of their thoughts about the program.

Thank you once more from all of us here at Mittagong PS. We wish your organisation continued success into the future.

Regards Mrs Janelle Parks Learning and Support Teacher
