As part of the Leavers’ Programme, Year 8 had the opportunity to experience some Paralympic events.
Sitting volleyball, boccia and one-legged high jump all featured, with fantastic teamwork and communication skills on show, along with complete trust in partners whilst blindfolded playing boccia.
The one-legged high jump proved extremely exciting and the boys showed tremendous technique during their jumps. The assembled boys looked in in bewilderment when the bar was raised to 1.90m to show the world record one-legged high jump height!
At the end of the programme the boys acknowledged the attributes that must be required by these incredible athletes; courage, motivation, perseverance...familiar words indeed!
