Wheelchair Basketball And Boccia For Charity Week
As part of Claires Court’s annual ‘Charity Week’, which sees all pupils from Nursery to Sixth Form fundraising for local charities, Year 8 boys visited SportsAble at Braywick Park last week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Their experience involved trying out wheelchair basketball and boccia, and being interviewed by Claires Court staff on their experience, with footage being made into a charity video.
Will Ansell, Senior Boys Head of Year 8, said:
“Allowing the boys to play boccia and wheelchair basketball enabled them to gain a much deeper understanding of how essential organisations such as SportsAble are. Every pupil left the event with the knowledge of two new sports which many had never played and learnt the importance of inclusive sport within our community.”
