Greenfield Students Respect Sporting Challenge

posted 22 Mar 2017, 05:46 by
As part of Rights Respecting Day Year 9 students at Greenfield Community College had a practical themed day where they had the opportunity to learn about disability in relation to sport. The day focused on the difficulties of being a disabled sports person and the challenges this may present. The students were able to take part in a number of events including blind football and sit down volleyball.

The activities gave them a real insight into the lives of Paralympic competitors and some of the difficulties they have to overcome but also how rewarding the sport can be. The students commented about what a fantastic day it had been and how much more respect and understanding they now gained for people that have to cope with a disability everyday.
