This week, Brendon Talbott from Wheelchair Sports NSW Roadshow visited our School to give a thought-provoking presentation on risk behaviour, sport for people with a disability, and living with a disability.
The Wheelchair Roadshow offers a unique and educational program that complements the courses covered by Year 10 PASS students. During Term 2, our students have been exploring the unit of study, Physical Activity and Sports for Specific Groups.
The program was innovative, absorbing and interactive. Through personal narrative, it gave students an understanding of wheelchair sports and the athletes who play them.
Students participated in a game of Wheelchair Basketball to give them a taste of a wheelchair sport which they thoroughly enjoyed, with some students even managing to shoot several baskets.
