Dear Friends,

Welcome to 2020! 
We hope you have had a great break, rested and recharged for the new year!

Over January we were invited to have a hit on court at the Australian Open. 
We hosted Summer Games Day Wednesday 22 of January. It was a great day to make friends and join in some fun games. 
We are interested in feedback on what events to plan for next school holidays!

Over the holidays DCA has been busy planning events for 2020. Check out the upcoming events below.

Hasas Shines!
“The DCA camp was incredibly helpful for all of us,” Nadeesha says. “It gave Hasas the opportunity to participate in confidence-building activities such as rock climbing. In turn, it allowed Yasas to meet other children like him who also have a brother or sister with profound hearing loss.”
“And for me and my husband, it was a wonderful opportunity to learn from other parents like us and to spend time with adults who are deaf or hard of hearing. They are a wonderful role model for us, and for our boys.”
