Many of our ākonga have been enjoying the new sports kits set up by Blind Sport. Their teachers are able to borrow these kits to use with their whole class, which means that our ākonga are using accessible equipment alongside their peers.
This has been a great opportunity for modelling accessible physical education sessions, for trying new sports and working out the best equipment to purchase for ākonga. This has tied in beautifully with our centre focus on encouraging our ākonga to get involved in physical activities.
A group of ākonga were also involved in the local Halberg sports day and another group took part in Parafed’s sports taster.
