The 10th anniversary of the Life Skills Resources Room-Holy Cross High School, Bastora, in north Goa, will be held on Saturday.
To celebrate the success of inclusion, the slogan this year is, ‘Inclusion Works… We made it happen’.
TES(Towards Inclusion Everywhere in Society), a parent support group of children with disabilities in association with the school in Bastora would be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Life Skills Resource Room- the first of its kind classroom in Goa which is based on the concept of inclusive education.
On this occasion the Annual Inclusion Day will be held at the school at 9.30 a.m. on Saturday.
Mr. Rohan Khaunte, MLA, Porvorim will be the chief guest.
This unique event is being held for the seventh time where children with disabilities are partnered with a regular child and together they participate in various activities such as games, art and craft activities, and a music and dance session.
Participants will include 50 children with special needs from the four resource rooms (which are functioning in regular mainstream schools of Goa) with another 50 children from Holy Cross High School, Bastora.
A souvenir will also be released to commemorate this event and there will be an exhibition of the work done by the four participating resource rooms too.
Simultaneously, there will be a get- together for parents featuring games and an audio-visual presentation of the activities done by TIES as well as those from the resource rooms.
