As a part of the 'Positive Start' initiative program, created by the Victorian Government, the Yan Yean Learning Community students were fortunate to have an incursion with Basketball Victoria. Our 5/6's students were taught how to play Wheelchair Hoops. This incursion was an incredible experience which helped to further teach our students about one of our MPPS CARE values, Empathy.
