External Wheelchair Sports Delivery
Throughout February and March, members of the ASPIRE team responsible for disability sports and Primary Links within St Chad's, have been transporting our sports wheelchairs to two local primary schools and delivering after school sessions.
From the Headteacher of St Martin's we received this letter detailing the benefits and impact which he feels the programme has had on the students in his school.
"The children have gained a greater knowledge about what it means to be 'disabled' and what it means to have to use a wheelchair. This was of huge importance to these pupils as one of their peers does have to make use of a wheelchair. This has taught them empathy and also helped them to reflect on how they look at people with a disability"
