As part of our study on sports for people with a disability, students in Year 10 took part in the Wheelchair Sports NSW Roadshow program this week. This program consisted of a short presentation on road safety and the consequences of taking risks, disability sport and living with a disability.
The talk was made more powerful by the fact that the presenter could explain first-hand what life is like living in a wheelchair. This was followed by a presentation on wheelchair basketball, where the students were given the opportunity to participate in a game. The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
