On May 7th, we held a Sports day for BLENNZ primary and intermediate aged learners. 18 learners attended. It was held at the PHAB Building in Takapuna. Out on the field, Rhys and James from Halberg, and Matt and Parveen from Blind Sport provided coaching sessions in soccer and cricket. We discovered that we have some budding bowlers and batsmen (figure 1).
Inside, Pops Games provided some amazing wooden games and puzzles. They were all large and colourful, excellent for our students to use. Many were really challenging providing an opportunity for learners to test their problem solving skills.
The polybats (table tennis) game in which the adults were blindfolded was the scene of laughter and hilarity. In figure 2, two girls enjoying the challenge of playing polybats.
All in all, a wonderful day which encouraged lots of physical and social opportunities for all who took part.
