Adapted Sports Day at Mt. Roskill Primary School.

Two of our students from Room 23, Fadil Hasan and Clarke Wairepo competed in the Adapted Sports Day competition at Mount Roskill Primary School on Friday 24th March, 2017. It was a great day had by everyone.

And the students are off into the unknown ... who will win?

A quick look at the venue.

Clarke having a go at this activity.

Clarke was presented with the Billy Sullivan Cup for sportsmanship. It was presented to him by Jesse Reynolds, one of New Zealand's paralympians who competed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2016.

Clarke's name engraved on the Billy Sullivan cup. This cup gets kept in the staffroom until next year when it goes up for offer again to all the competitors.

Clarke's personal trophy to take home for him to keep.

Room 23 happy and supportive of Clarke's awesome win.

  1. Adapted sports was such a great experience to be apart of and to see so many other children who have a disability be capable of doing something. One of my favourite highlights would have been seeing Clarke, Damien, and Vavega trying their best in every sport that was assigned to them.

    Some children were disappointed in coming last or third but everything isn't always about winning but trying your best and making the right choices if you did come third or last. Being humble is a great character to have through life.
