In the last week of term 2, two BLENNZ learners and their classes from Glen Eden Intermediate experienced a goalball session facilitated by Casey from Blind Sport NZ. Both classes prepared for the session by watching goalball videos on YouTube and at the start of their session they learnt defence and attack strategies.
Wearing blindfolds and in teams of three they participated in the game. Initially cautious they soon became familiar with the game and became more competitive.
It was a positive experience for all! One class asked lots of questions around blindness, eye conditions and low vision, which gave the BLENNZ learner the opportunity to tell them about albinism and how it affected her.
