On Thursday a group of Year 11 students, including myself, went to Mudgeeraba Special School. As it was my first visit to the school I didn’t quite know what to expect, however I was really looking forward to the afternoon.

I was assigned to work with two lovely 6 year old boys. Even though they were both mostly non-verbal, in just two hours of building blocks, making puzzles and playing games, I built very strong connections with both of them and I am already counting down the days until I can return next Thursday.

Personally, I found this experience incredibly rewarding and I loved interacting with the kids. I am so grateful to Mr Walker, Dr Johnson and Mudgeeraba Special School for providing us with this amazing life experience and service opportunity!
