We brought a school group of Year 8/9 students down to South Melbourne today for the fishing program with Ian. Our students have mild intellectual disabilities and Ian was absolutely fantastic! He was patient and gave very clear instructions that students could easily follow. He also loved having a joke with the kids - which they absolutely adored! The students were successful in catching a few different fish. I would highly recommend this program to anyone considering!!!
