Foundation provides respite through fun and play

TO BIANCA, Tyler, and Patrick, their excursion last Friday was a chance to explore the Pioneer Park and Museum, and meeting a funny talking parrot.

To the Endeavour Foundation, the excursions are not just a chance for the kids to get out of the house over the school holidays, but are a way for their parents to catch up on things at home.

The Endeavour Foundation runs school holiday activities for children with physical and intellectual disabilities.

Support worker Michelle Spruill said the benefits of their programs were far-reaching for the parents and children.

"We support all abilities and disabilities and help them to reach their potential,” she said.

"It gives a respite to the families on school holidays, and we do it in a safe environment and entertaining environment.”

The three children were given the chance to learn about old-age machinery and life before they were born, thanks to the Endeavour Foundation and their work.
