Brisbane Broncos players Payne Haas and Jack Bird joined DCA and POD QLD at the latest POD Picnic! The players led ball skills activities and signed flags for the children and families. Thank you to the Broncos for coming along and joining in the fun – everyone had a great time brushing up on their rugby skills!

POD QLD run monthly get-togethers for deaf and hard of hearing children and families at accessible parks in the Brisbane area. The group is inclusive and does not value one mode of communication over another, supporting everyone and their individual choices. POD is supported by Deaf Children Australia, and a DCA Support Parent is in attendance at each POD Picnic.

POD picnics are held each month at various locations. If you are interested in attending future POD picnics, contact Stacey Johnson at or 0411 035 334 to receive future picnic details. DCA also lists each POD Picnic on our Upcoming Events page and on Facebook, so keep an eye on our social media channels too!
