Harvey Norman NSW Sky Blues forward Millie Boyle is inviting students with disabilities to come to Ignite HQ Centre of Excellence on Tuesday and learn what being a ‘Blue’ is all about.
Fresh from the 20-14 win over Queensland in the Ampol Women’s State of Origin in Canberra, Boyle will be joined by fellow Blues forwards Simaima Taufa and Filomina Hanisi in the one-day workshop.
It will be held on Tuesday 5 July from 10am-2pm at Ignite HQ Centre of Excellence at Sydney Olympic Park.
The program ‘Game Changer’ inclusion program for NDIS participants is set around an indoor/outdoor educational experience.
They will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk the same halls as their favourite NSW State of Origin players and meet some special guests.
Students can feel like they are an Origin player and take part in some of the tasks set out for NSW Blues players.
Boyle is one of the foundation members of ‘Trainer Group’ after discovering there was a shortage of quality education program for people with disabilities.
She decided to help build a program and take it around to various NRL clubs and other community sports organisations.
“Trainer Group is a game changer for those wanting to improve mental and physical health, increase community participation and get job ready,” Boyle told her social media followers.
“As you know, I am very passionate about working in the disability space, largely because of my little sister Hannah.”
So, Boyle is calling on all passionate Blues fans, who want to learn some new skills and make new friends, to register for this school holidays activity on 5 July.
The cost of the day can be drawn from participants NDIS funding.
