One In Five for Sunday 22 September 2013
The Hamilton Competitions Society has been holding annual performing arts competitions for more than 70 years. Four years ago it decided to add another category – a competition for children and young people with special needs. A couple of months ago scores of performers turned out to sing, dance and perform musical items to a hall full of spectators. And One in Five hears about the new picture book My Friend’s a Superhero. It’s been written to encourage discussion with children about disability and their responses to those living with it.
