Suneden Special School

Sensory play space
Suneden Special School was founded in 1943 and is an independent, not-for-profit, non-denominational school that caters to approximately 60 students aged 5 to 21 years with intellectual and multiple disabilities. Approximately 70% of the students have Autism; other medical conditions the students experience include Down Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Global Developmental Delay.

Many of the students at Suneden Special School, particularly students with Autism, experience challenges processing sensory information and self-regulating their sensory and behavioural responses. Alternative learning and development settings are required to support their needs and to facilitate their engagement in curriculum and other activities.

Consequently, the school is creating a new outdoor sensory play space especially designed for the students and the first of its kind in South Australia.

Freezer for Emergency Food – Adelaide
Work Injured Resource Connection (WIRC) began in 1996 when the founding members gathered to discuss their common experiences and difficulties with the South Australian WorkCover system. It was begun with the aim of providing injured workers with information, knowledge and support as they attempted to regain control of their lives, and understand the system in which they found themselves trapped.

The Bags of Love Emergency Relief project was given this name to reflect what is very much required by many work injured South Australians.
