Year 9 Wheelchair Basketball Excursion

On Tuesday 30 and Wednesday 31 August, Year 9 attended a PDHPE incursion with Wheelchair Sports NSW Roadshow, where we participated in a highly intense game of wheelchair basketball. It was an engaging experience learning about both of our instructors disability and how they have managed to defy the odds by representing Australia at numerous sporting championships such as the London 2012 Paralympics. The stories of their achievements inspired all of us to have both determination and persistence when reaching for our goals. By taking part in a variety of activities associated with wheelchair basketball followed by an actual game, we were surprised to be introduced to a physically and tactically demanding game, requiring a high level of competence and skill. Overall, it was a fun filled day for everyone!
