The Special Children’s Christmas Party
For over 16 years, the Special Children’s Christmas Party has put on Christmas parties for disadvantaged children all over Australia.
The aim of the Special Children’s Christmas Party is to ensure the children have a wonderful and memorable day filled with loads of Christmas fun, laughs and excitement. The kids enjoy a fantastic variety of rides, entertainment, festive food, and presents from Santa.
The children attending the parties suffer from terminal illness or intellectual or physical impairments. Some children from underprivileged situations also come along, as do some of the siblings of special needs children. The kids range in age from 6 months to 15 years. Many travel long distances to attend their nearest Special Children’s Christmas Party.
Sydney’s 2009 Special Children’s Christmas Party was held 9 December at Rosehill Gardens. Over 5000 special needs children from Sydney and surrounding areas came along and, according to reports, everyone had a blast!
