PARAbility Day 2012
On Tuesday 17th April we held a PARAlympic day at St Gregory's where 35 students with either a Physical
Disability or a Learning Disability came together from both Primary and Secondary schools across the
involved had six activities on offer of which they could pick four. Students had the opportunity to try
Seated Volleyball, Table Cricket, Boccia, Tri-Golf,
pleasing to see the students getting involved and showing so much enthusiasm for the sessions that they were taking part in.
The atmosphere at the end of the day was amazing, both students and staff felt that they had gained a lot throughout the course of the day.
Students have the opportunity to progress on to the Playground to Podium Disability talent introduction
sessions in a variety of sports which will be held across
through on the day. Who knows maybe we have some budding PARAlympians of the future out there!
Our thanks to the coaches from Studely Wood Golf Club, Oxford University Rugby Club, Oxfordshire RFU, Oxfordshire FA, Premier Sports Group, Oxfordshire Sports Partnership and Lord Williams's School for all their enthusiasm and expertise. Grateful thanks also to St Gregory the Great for hosting the event and to Louise Newell, School Sports Co-ordinator for organising the day.
