The Sudbury Catholic District School Board will be hosting the Special Olympics Ontario “Have A Go!” Event on Monday, May 4, 2009 at St. Raphael and Pius XII Catholic Schools for the elementary students and at St. Charles College and St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School for the secondary students.|
The event is a multi-sport festival for students in the LifeSkills classrooms throughout the Board and will allow students to “have a go” at different Special Olympic sports. In addition, the Special Olympics event will showcase emerging athletes, thus allowing for the development of future Special Olympians. It also introduces sport to individuals with intellectual disabilities.
All Life Skills students in the Sudbury Catholic Schools at both the elementary and secondary levels will be participating. As well, a senior physical education class and a grade 8 class, will be volunteers for the day.
