The families were all from the Central West and Western Districts of NSW, so had much in common, as well as much to learn from each other.
The kids enjoyed an activities program on Saturday while their parents had the option to attend a number of workshops with DS NSW staff and guest speakers. The program was supported and supervised by volunteers from the local area - we thank them for their involvement.
Older teens and adults with Down syndrome enjoyed their own program of activities and entertainment.
Phil Davidson entertained with fabulous music, and a Families' Weekend adaptation of Spicks and Specks.
On Sunday morning the visit to Western Plains Zoo was a great hit, with the kids and the grown-ups.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved in making it such a success!
Organisation and planning for Families' Weekend, and the program costs are funded by NSW Health, under the NSW Carers Program, and by Down Syndrome NSW.
