Year 8 students were privileged to meet Orfeo from Disability Sports and Recreation on Wednesday. He introduced students to wheelchair basketball and shared his personal story with each grade. The program is aimed at raising disability awareness promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Students discussed diversity, acceptance and different types of disabilities. At the end of their sessions they were able to play a game of wheelchair basketball, which gave them a physical understanding of what it is like to live with a disability.
Staff were also challenged to a game during their lunchtime break.
Thank you to Ms Taratuta for organising the event and to Orfeo from Disability Sports and Recreation.
