Sporting endeavours of all abilities

03 June 2021

Over the past few weeks, our Year 10s have been deeply engaged in learning about the many options in sport for people living with disabilities. 

They have had a visit from Rick, who gave an inspirational and educational talk on safety with an uplifting insight into his life and experiences in the world of wheelchair basketball. It  was a great afternoon which gave the students a chance to try wheelchair basketball themselves, and in doing so, allowed them to connect in an interactive, inclusive, and informative way.

Year 10s also had an enlivening visit from Paralympic champions Julie and Lynda. These inspiring athlete role models shared with the students the value of goal-setting, the power of sport, and encouraged students of all abilities to embrace healthy, active lifestyles. Not only did our Year 10 students get to hear their stories and achievements, they got to see their many medals up close, helping to remind us all that diversity is a strength to be celebrated!
