Lawnton State School

At Lawnton State School we dream big and have a philosophy that all our students, regardless of circumstances, are expected to aim and achieve high. Today Trish you were the epitome of grace and dignity and all things that Lawnton hold true. Our students were fascinated with your talk today and the positive way you promoted success on all levels and under all circumstances. 

Our Facebook page is buzzing with excited parents and children  sharing your journey and with one of our little year 1 students telling him mum, “see I can do it mum, Trish said there is no such word as “Can’t”   You have made such a positive impact on all our community with sharing your story.

I love how  both you and Trevor gave your time so freely to stay back with the myriad of students wanting you to draw for them and just be with you.

We have officially made you a Lawnton legend and would love to have you back to our school on our “Dream Big” afternoons where we ask or community to share stories with our students to inspire them to reach for the stars.

Thank you again, you have changed someone’s world today.

Principal, Lawnton State School

International Day of People with a Disability 2017

Sunday  3rd December 2017 was #IDPWD International Day of People with a Disability. I was asked to be part of iFLY Indoor Skydiving (Gold Coast, QLD) who are totally geared up to include people with all ranges of disability to participate. Yesterday they gave 100 disabled people to try skydiving for free..

To say it was awesome is just an understatement.. I am so glad I got to do this, I don’t get to do many sporting things … this was just incredible.. The instructors were awesome, caring and just made everyone feel at ease and made the experience so worthwhile.

Toowoomba Rotaract group

This week I had the pleasure of speaking with the Toowoomba Rotaract group. It was a lot of fun.

Some of their feedback was: Thanks so much Trish for showing us that we can do anything we put our minds to, no matter what anyone else says! The feedback has all been positive. You truly inspired our club and showed us what resilience and gratitude is!  You gave everyone a lot to think about and really inspired all of us. 🙂
