NDIS Plan Review is a 90 minute online workshop for parents of children with disability.
Covid-19 has meant a lot of changes to the way families can access services for their children with disability. Your family may be accessing more services and doing things quite differently this year which can affect your child’s NDIS plan. If your Plan Review is coming soon it’s a good opportunity to talk to the NDIS Planner about the changes your child needs over the next 12 months.
The Association for Children with a Disability (ACD) is running a FREE, online workshop called NDIS Plan Review, starting in November.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to tailor your child’s plan to their changing needs and goals.
You’ll learn about:
>> Planning for your NDIS Plan Review during Covid-19
>> Informing the Planner how Covid-19 will change your child’s support needs
>> Types of Plan Review
>> Gathering supporting evidence
>> Extending or rolling-over NDIS Plans
>> Evidencing over and underspend
ACD facilitators have children with disability, so they understand how you’re feeling and what to expect in your Plan Review.
Be sure to register ASAP to secure your place.
Bookings are essential.
Research indicates that parents are the single greatest influence on their child’s education and career decisions. High parental engagement can have a major impact on the young person’s learning.

Over the past two weeks, Wacky the Wombat has been spending time in the middle year classrooms.
Wacky has loved coming to school each day and spending his nights with different students, experiencing their home routines, and eating lots of food according to some of the students.
Wacky and the students love spending time together and we have had some great photos sent back to school of students having fun with Wacky after school.
Keep an eye out for Wacky at school, he is still currently spending time experiencing the homes of some middle year students.
We can't wait to see what he gets up to over the next couple weeks!

Some healthy school lunch ideas can include sandwiches made with wholemeal or grain bread, a bread roll or pita bread with reduced fat cheese, lean meat or salad, or a quiche.
Healthy snack ideas may include reduced fat yogurt, hard boiled eggs, dry biscuits, rice biscuits, fresh fruit and veggies, along with a drink bottle with water.
NO sugary drinks such as juice or cordial.
Avoid snack bars as these are high in sugar or salt.
No chocolate biscuits, lollies or chips
*Ideally, your child’s lunch will only contain items that will be eaten, composted or recycled as we are trying to promote a rubbish free environment (no wrappers)

My name is Vanessa and I am the new Wellbeing Officer here at BCSS, under the Chaplaincy Program.
I have a Diploma in Counselling, a background working as an integration aide and also have some special needs kids of my own. So, I personally understand a lot of the struggles people may be going through. My aim is to be a friendly face, a non-judgmental and safe person to speak to and someone the kids can have lots of fun with!
Things can be tough at any time of life, but Covid has added unusual and new challenges. It’s okay not to be okay, so please reach out if you need someone to talk to or even just someone to have a cuppa with!
I am available Tuesday & Wednesday's at school and look forward to getting to know everyone!
