On Thursday November 16th, SWD hosted two lovely schools for our Winds of Joy Sail on Sydney Harbour. In the morning we were joined by the delightful kids and staff from Wangee Park School and in the afternoon we met the fantastic kids and staff from Wairoa School.
The following stories about the day, are from SWD volunteer Renee Smith, pictured below with Chisolm from Wangee Park School.
'Initially Chisolm wasn't responding to or interacting with me' says Renee 'and it was quite an effort to keep convincing him to stay seated next to me as we prepared to leave the dock. However as soon as our yacht Kayle pulled out into the channel and he felt the breeze, his face lit up into the most glorious smile. That big smile then stayed on his face as he responded to all the different sights that I was pointing out to him'.
Chisolm was very keen to go and sit up on the bow with one of his teachers and some of the SWD crew. He happily sat up there for the whole trip around the harbour. It was wonderful to see Chisolm enjoy his sailing experience so much'
