Today we played a game of Boccia. Boccia is a game that is played in the Para-Olympics. It was developed for those with cerebral palsy, those who are confined to a wheel-chair and other disabilities.
We are learning to empathise and to listen carefully. To help us empathise better we had to play the game sitting in a chair and throw the ball with our weaker arm.
Some of the students were teachers and some were the learners.
I thought the teachers did a good job running the game and most of the students felt they could empathise better with those who have disabilities.
