Inclusive day for people with disability | PHOTOS

The International Day of People with Disability was marked with a fun day in the Ada Ryan Gardens, where local community organisations came together to celebrate those who live with disability.

Support services like Orana and Bedford were joined by groups such as the Country Fire Service (CFS), the Lions Club of Whyalla Norrie, SAPOL and the Whyalla City Council to offer inclusive activities.

Everything from rides in the firetruck to demonstrations of Thai Chi and a visit from the care bears was complimented by music from members of the Whyalla Youth Group.

Mission Australia organised the day's proceedings in partnership with the Whyalla Disability Reference Group, and Service Area Manager Courtney Dowling said it was great to recognise the contributions that people with disability make to Whyalla.

"It's really important for the community to get together and celebrate such an important day," she said.

"The atmosphere was really relaxed, there was no pressure for people to come and leave at a certain time - they got to make their way around to the different stalls at their own leisure."

Ms Dowling said it was great to see so many people turning up throughout the day.

"We had some music, some free ice cream, sausage sizzle and donuts ... ride-on ponies, that's a lot of fun," she said.
