Blind Sports BC visits our district!

On Thursday, November 16th School District 60 hosted Mike Lonergan of BC Blind Sports who ran Goalball workshops for students at Clearview Elementary/Secondary School and Alwin Holland Elementary School. Goalball is a paralympic sport for individuals with visual impairments. All players are blindfolded and working in teams have to use their sense of hearing to block and catch a rolling ball with bells. It is a fun sport that promotes verbal communication skills between players and promotes empathy toward their peers who have visual impairments.
If you are interested in your class experiencing this workshop please contact Jennifer Robertson, jrobertson@prn.bc.ca.
