Pius XII Students Try Out New Sports

Pius XII Catholic School Grade 6 students, Cortney Lanigan (left) and Logan Maki try out the new “parasport” equipment at the school gym. The students enjoyed the challenge of adapting and developing new skills with respect to their favourite sports such as hockey and basketball.

October 8, 2009 - Students at Pius XII Catholic School participated in the “Try-it” Parasport Clinic recently.

During the clinic students were provided with a specific sport and an equipment demonstration of different types of sports activities, such as basketball, hockey, bocce and curling. The importance on being “physically fit” was also emphasized throughout the clinic.

Susan Levesque with SportLink Greater Sudbury Sport Council lead a Parasport clinic with the Pius XII students. Numerus classes including the Special Education class participated in wheelchair basketball, sledge hockey, bocce and curling.

The Pius students were able to experience what it feels like to be in a wheel chair, and they quickly realized that it was possbile to participate in many sports activities through the use of a specially designed equipment.

Pius XII Catholic School would like to thank Susan Levesque with SportLink for providing the students with the equipment which allowed them to participate in this unique sports activity.
