Supporting Each Other
Penbank Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 students recently got to walk a mile in another’s shoes...
when they had the opportunity to play Goal Ball. Goal ball is a ball sport played by vision impaired people where the object of the game is to roll the ball into your goal while your opponents try to block it with their bodies. The only way you know the ball is coming at you is the ringing of the bell inside the ball, ensuring a lot of defensive crawling, scrambling, and diving all while wearing eye coverings.
Despite feeling way out of their comfort zones, the students loved the experience.
