International Day of Persons with Disabilities

We were due to hold a level 2 Sitting Volleyball festival on this day to celebrate International Day of Persons with Disabilities, but this was unfortunately postponed due to rising levels of Covid.

Instead, I was very honoured to be invited to All Saints Benhilton to help them mark this day with taster sessions in 'sitting down' sports for Y1-6.

James Freeman, a Tokyo wheelchair paralympian, was the guest of honour who spoke during morning assembly and to each group as they came to try out their activities along with an opportunity for Q&A. Every class of children were extremely excited to meet their visitor and to try out the new activities.

Thanks to All Saints Benhilton for inviting me to share this very special day.
