As the Northern Territorys first Minister for Disability Services, I am committed to creating opportunities for all Territorians with a disability to be able to engage with their community, and achieve their greatest potential. I look forward to hearing about the ongoing progress and opportunities the pool provides for Alice Springs students for many years to come. Minister for Education Peter Chandler said the hydrotherapy pool was part of a Territory wide special school infrastructure program worth more than $30 million. Were investing in special education, be it upgrades and additional facilities like here in Alice Springs, or building dedicated schools in rapidly growing areas, Mr Chandler said. This infrastructure is important to give these students the best opportunities in life. Media Contact: Phoebe Stewart 0438885774 (08) 8928 6649
