On the Wednesday, 14 August, The Halberg Foundation held their sports day at Rutherford College. Eliana Brooking, Dayton Henry, Lincoln Henry and Kingston Ross represented Rutherford College as leaders along with students from Kelston Girls and St Doms.
The day was based around giving children with impairments the opportunity to play various adaptive sports which included versions of table tennis, football and cricket, which they all loved. The day was a great experience and it was a great pleasure to be involved.
The day showed the importance of any child being able to have fun playing sports no matter their abilities or challenges which was truly inspiring. At the end of the games, we had the opportunity to listen to a speaker sharing his experiences being a leader and the day finished with a hangi supplied by Halberg.
It was great having a chance to be involved with the Halberg Foundation and we look forward to the Olympic games in October.
