In Media Coverage, Our Stories

On April 31, STEPS Pathways Collage students were so excited to get a visit from Sunshine Coast Lightning players, Courtney Bruce, Liz Watson, and Tara Hinchcliffe.

The students enjoyed talking to the players, learning about the game of netball, fostering new skills including passing the ball, and practicing the team’s special celebration.

Courtney, Liz, and Tara loved their time with the students and getting to know them all, especially seeing their unique personalities emerge. They had to laugh when they saw them breaking some netball rules and throwing the ball around one handed while sitting and running… they all tried everything!

STEPS students thrive having experiences like this with their peers and the Lightning visit would not have happened without our supporter, Ken Mills Toyota, who work hard to create and foster community partnerships. 

STEPS Pathways College is an intensive training course designed to provide young adults with a disability and autism with the opportunity to further develop the skills needed to experience a life of independence. One of those is social skills, so being able to have fun activities like this with visitors allows our students to practise their social skills and have fun with their peers and our wonderful guests.
