Margot Beavon-Collin and Sarah Korte


Week 6, Semester 1, 2021

To new and old disabled students, we’re Sarah and Margot. We’re your office bearers for this year. We run the Disability Collective, which is an autonomous group on campus for disabled students to meet, organise, support one another, and push for a better, more accessible campus. We also help liaise with the Caregivers Network, a group for students with informal caregiving responsibilities. If you’d like to get involved, email us at disabilities.officers@src.usyd.edu.au.

We’re currently looking forward to the event we’re co-hosting with SignSoc, USyd’s Auslan society. You can join, meet other Auslan users, or learn the language in a fun, safe environment. At the event, three short films in Auslan and BSL will be shown. It’ll take place on April 21, at 5pm, in person and via Zoom. It’ll be a gold coin donation for DisCo members, and SignSoc members can come for free. For more info, check the Disability Collective Facebook page, or shoot us an email.

Have a good semester, and take care.
