We recently had a fantastic experience for our Year 10 Sports Studies classes with Kelly Nooy from ParaFed Otago.
She bought in sports wheelchairs to give the students the opportunity to have a go and see what it's like using them. They were able to participate in a full coaching session for Wheelchair Basketball. This was linked in with our Coaching Unit we've just completed, so it gave the students the opportunity to build on their learning around coaching, what is involved with coaching, how to plan and deliver a quality lesson, and making sports accessible to all.
Thank you so much to Kelly and ParaFed Otago for providing this invaluable experience, our students absolutely loved it and gained so much from it.
