Paralympic Legacy

 

IMG_0003Hartpury college students visited the school yesterday to give the children a taste of some Paralympic sports.

The children were able to participate in blind football and seated volleyball.

It was great to see them really appreciate the effort, training and determination that paralympians have to have in order to compete at the very highest level.

The children had a great time and not only learnt a new sport but gained a greater understanding of the challenges faced by disabled people and how these can be overcome.
