Magic Show for Children with Autism

Thursday March 4, 2021 at 5:00 PM

A social group promoting engagement in fun, sensory and skill based activities for children with Autism in grades 1-7

About this Event

Children’s magic workshops are fun and interactive, allowing children to get a behind the scenes look and deeper understanding of the art of magic and illusion.

Kids will learn the fundamentals of magic, presentation techniques and be involved in a hands-on lesson working with magic props.

They will walk away with real tricks, which they can take home to show their friends and family.

Great for confidence building and increasing hand eye coordination.

The A-Team is a social group promoting engagement in fun, sensory and skill based activities for children with Autism in grades 1-7

Always welcoming new members!

For all enquiries please email

Clean Up Australia Day

Clean Up Australia inspires and empowers communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment. The slogan for 2021 is ‘Step Up to Clean Up’.

What was started thirty years ago, by an “average Australian bloke” who had a simple idea to make a difference in his own backyard has now become the nation’s largest community-based environmental event.

We know Australia’s waste challenges can’t be solved in just one day, so over the past three decades, Clean Up Australia has evolved into an organisation that works with community, government and businesses to provide practical solutions to help us all live more sustainably every day of the year. We can all play a part to help keep Australia beautiful.

Today their focus is as much on preventing rubbish entering our environment as it is removing what has already accumulated.

Step Up and register a site on Clean Up Australia Day – Sunday 7 March 2021. They will send you a free kit with bags and gloves and everything you need to get started. You can also volunteer with a Clean Up event already organised.


FREE Sesame Street Books for Kids

BIG W is set to give away more than 2.6 million Sesame Street books entirely free as part of its Free Books For Kids program, with another 40,000 books to be given to children in need. 

Returning for its fifth instalment, the initiative seeks to support literacy by making books for early learning more accessible, this time partnering with Sesame Workshop (the non-profit educational organisation behind Sesame Street). The program enables people across the nation to collect a new Sesame Street book each week, for eight weeks, from Thursday 18 February 2021 with no purchase necessary (available nationally while stocks last).

Board Game Evenings at Good Start Psychology

Good Start Psychology are pleased to offer small groups of NDIS participants the opportunity to attend our fun board game evenings!
Board games are enjoyed by people young and old. In addition to this enjoyment, children and young people can benefit in many therapeutic ways.
These benefits include developing social skills across many areas, such as forming and maintaining friendships, practicing teamwork, bonding over common interests, setting goals, as well as understanding the importance of patience and cooperation.
Playing board games also increases brain function. By learning to strategise and problem solve, participants will develop their critical thinking, logic and cognitive skills. They can challenge themselves in a nurturing environment and have opportunities to enhance their creativity and self-confidence.
For most participants, these board game evenings can be fully paid for with your NDIS funding.
Ages 7–13 years:  First Friday of each month, 4pm – 6pm
Cost $80 per person
Ages 14+ years: Last Friday of each month, 5pm – 8pm
Cost $135 per person

To register your interest, please email us at or speak to your therapist at your next appointment.
