Tagai State College has won the Excellence in Inclusive Education and Training Award in the 2016 National Disability Awards held at Parliament House in Canberra on 7 November. The announcement was made by the Assistant Minister for Social Services and Disability Services, Jane Prentice. The National Disability Awards, now in their 10th year, recognise the achievements of people and organisations that have improved the lives of people with disability. We are thrilled that our work and effort to improve the lives of students with disability has been recognised in this way. It is important that we all continue to look at ways in which we can break down barriers, open doors and work towards an inclusive society for all. These Awards also recognise the incredible contribution
people with disability make to our society. The Awards are a major part of the Commonwealth Government’s celebration of International Day of People with Disability. International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) on 3 December is an opportunity to make positive changes to the lives of 4 million Australians.
