Year 9 Wheelchair basketball and road safety incursion
Recently year nine students took part in a wheelchair basketball and road safety incursion. Overall all of us were very excited going into the incursion. Before we started, we were informed about how to reduce chances of road accidents and to ensure our safety on the roads. When the time comes for us to drive this really put things into perspective. I can say on behalf of everyone at the incursion, that we really learnt and understood the circumstances and consequences of driving under the influence or being distracted at the wheel. After our road safety crash course we were informed about the various sports available for people in wheelchairs and the everyday struggles they go through to carry out simple tasks. We played multiple games of wheelchair basketball where we all felt the amount of strength needed to push the wheelchair to play the game. Overall the incursion was a very fun and educational experience that all of year 9 enjoyed and learnt from.
