Aspect Riverina School is holding a Black and White Ball this October to celebrate life on the autism spectrum and generate greater understanding of autism in the local community.
School Principal, Jane Carrington said the ball aimed to show the community that while life can sometimes seem black and white, it is important to recognise the individual diversity that brings all the colours of the rainbow to our lives.
“Aspect Riverina School’s Gala Ball is going to be spectacular night of celebration, with a number of guest speakers presenting information to inform and highlight the importance of inclusion in our community, live music and a three course meal.
“We want to celebrate the talents and strengths of individuals on the autism spectrum and acknowledge that while life can sometimes seem black and white, it is diversity that brings the colour to our lives.
Held in the Albury Entertainment Centre, the Black and White ball will feature guest speakers on the night including Judy Brewer (OA), Chris Varney (Founder and Chief Enabling Officer of I CAN Network) and British psychologist Tony Attwood.
