A Griffith school has opened their doors for the International Day of People With Disability, hosting a day of activities in celebration of the event.
Kalinda School held a day of activities to help celebrate the achievements of their students while also promoting the understanding and inclusion of people with disability.
Attendees were treated to a wide range of activities, including sensory activities aimed at increasing accessibility as well as face painting, hair colouring, jumping castles, karaoke and a sausage sizzle helping give visitors of all ages something to do.
Kalinda principal Angela Sampson said she was "ecstatic" to see the turnout from the community and was pleased to see a large increase in attendance from last year.
"Nobody has a disability today," Ms Sampson said.
"Everything's been inclusive, everything's been accessible and everyone has joined in together, so disability has absolutely disappeared - its all about ability.
"Last year we had just under 200 [attending], this year I had 330 confirmed RSVPs before coming in [today]."
Along with activities on offer, six disability service providers were also in attendance to give information about what they do and Ms Sampson said it was encouraging to see the services get involved with the school's event.
"All of our kids at Kalinda school have a disability and it's great to see all of these guys together to show off what Griffith has to offer," Ms Sampson said.
"Sometimes some services are a little bit hidden more than others, so it's to see whats right, see what's perfect for the child and see what to do next... especially with the NDIS plans in place."
Community connect facilitator at Kurrajong Bridget Walsh said the day served as a way for service providers to gain a better foothold in the community and help provide information.
"Today's a great day to catch up with families and see how they are travelling along, see how they need any assistance and see what we can do for them," Ms Walsh said.
