RAWCS National Project

Rotary Club of The Entrance is receiving a Grant to pay for a Corey unit and a Danny Sandpit for the Autism Spectrum School in Terrigal.

The Corey Unit provides opportunities for children to interact, climb, slide and play with different levels and activities to keep them focused and interested, thereby improving their gross motor skills and concentration.

The Danny Sand Pit has sand with a special texture which is very appealing to the students and a well constructed sand pit will provide new learning spaces where they can learn and respond to the sensory stimuli sand creates.

Confirmation of this project has been received from the RAWCS National Project Manager, please read the confirmation letter below and if possible any assistance by way of funds would be very appreciated. The link to donate funds is shown at the bottom of Mr Willis’s letter
