RISE - Fun Evening Classes for People with a Disability

Course Description

Are you interested in fun and inclusive learning opportunities?

The RISE Program of classes is intended for students who have a disability.

RISE stands for Rewarding Inclusive Social Education and the classes are designed to support students living with a disability to learn skills, have fun, socialise in a recreational setting and to participate in the local community.

Classes are currently held in the evenings at the following locations:

  • Dapto and Bomaderry on Mondays
  • Bomaderry on Tuesdays
  • Kiama and Bomaderry on Wednesdays
  • Shellcove on Thursdays


Classes are filled with fun and impart life skills such as cooking, photography and using IT. Students also engage in activities such as being creative with art and craft, music and dance, playing games, relaxation and exercise and going on social outings.


RISE students are well supported by qualified tutors and staff with qualifications in Disability Services.


How to enrol in the RISE program

If you have a NDIS Plan and would like to use some of your available funds to participate in the classes, or if you are due to have a review of your NDIS Plan and would like to know how to have funding included for the RISE Program, call 4232 1050 to express your interest.

What is the cost?

This can vary depending upon the Funding Category available in a student’s NDIS Plan. Classes run for 3 hours and the College charges according to the NDIS Pricing Guide for the Funding category in the Plan. This is fully discussed when a student enrols to attend the RISE Program and establishes a Service Agreement with us.

What about transport?

The College does not provide transport between home and the centre based classes so these costs are the responsibility of the participant.

What should I do next?
