I would like to wish the deaf community in Australia a happy National Week of Deaf People. It's an opportunity for deaf people to celebrate their community, language, culture and history. It's a time for all Australians to join with deaf people and recognise their achievements. This year's theme is Full Inclusion with Auslan. Thanks, Kate, for helping me with Auslan today. I hope I haven't made too many mistakes and that you can understand me. Happy National Week of Deaf People.
