Wheel Chair Sports Inspire Students to think About Disability

Fast Track Personal Development Skills students recently engaged in an enthralling activity with a company called– WheelTalk. WheelTalk encourage students to think about diversity, acceptance and disability while prompting students to think about what it would be like to actually live with a disability.

WheelTalk approaches the topic of disability through the delivery of a discussion that covers some of the lived experiences of people with disabilities. The key speaker also engaged students in an hour of wheelchair basketball whereby students learnt to play basketball in a wheelchair. Overall, students showed a high level of enthusiasm when engaging with the topic and hopefully learnt a few skills shooting hoops! HTC would like to thank WheelTalk for delivering a robust and inspiring program to our students.
