PE Student Leaders Deliver Sports Sessions to Local Schools
On Monday 6th February 2017 it was our pleasure to welcome approximately 48 students from; Egerton Rothesay, Alfriston, Pebble Brook, Stony Dean. St Mary’s FR and The PACE Centre. The students that attended had a range of disabilities ranging from power chair users and visual impairments to speech/language difficulties. They had the opportunity to take part in a range of activities including sitting volleyball, zone hockey, goal ball, boccia and indoor athletics.
The Higher Sports Leadership students attended a training session at The Alfriston School on Thursday 19th January where they learnt about a range of activities to include; sitting volleyball and Zone Hockey. These students went on to plan sessions that were appropriate for students with a range of disabilities. They went on to lead these sessions at The Ability Games on Monday 6th February. They were superb in their delivery and adapted to the needs of all these students who took part.
A fantastic day was had by all, and The Chalfonts Higher Sports Leadership Students were complemented by several of the schools for their enthusiasm and ability to engage with all students. Furthermore the students who attended this event had a great time with many schools thanking us for providing their students with such an excellent opportunity. We even overheard one of the student visitors saying “Well, that was a good day” as she left the building which clearly reflects the positive experience we had provided.
Many thanks for the support from Rachel Hutchinson, from Alfriston, who supported us in helping this event to get up and running.
