A few of VisAbility’s families attended the 2017 IGA Perth Royal Show Launch and had an opportunity to enjoy and interact with Farmer Nigel and his farm animals. The special event provided children with a rich learning experience, where they could spend time up close with the animals, with their parents and away from busy crowds.
VisAbility staff member Michelle said “The best part of the event was seeing the gorgeous smiles of the children as they experienced the hands on animal nursery experience. Like Levi, a highlight for me was the velveteen rabbit, and the cheeky working dogs!”
Levi’s mother Anastasia recalls how Levi especially enjoyed riding on the sheep. “He really enjoyed himself, it was a fantastic experience. I would say his huge smile said it all.”
The 2017 IGA Perth Royal Show ran from 23 – 30 September.
