Sport Level 2 students have been carrying out some excellent work, supported by their teacher Sam Plant, to find out what it is like being visually impaired, how you can take part in sporting activities, and to raise money for the charity Vision4Growth http://www.vision4growth.org.uk/. Overall our students raised £200!
To start with, students organised three fundraising events plus a visually-impaired assault course (right-hand photo in each row of photograph):

Marion Mansfield from Vision4Growth (see main photograph) came into speak to our Level 2 Sport students about being visually impaired and set our students some of the tasks which she encounters every day. She also came into congratulate the students for their excellent fundraising.
The session built on our students’ work designing their visually impaired assault courses and sports events. During these they peer assessed each other on how safe, challenging, creative and how well they were guided around the assault courses.
Marion says: “Your students are some of the best I have ever worked with because of their knowledge, consideration and professionalism.”
Sam Plant, teacher, adds: “Our students have not only thoroughly enjoyed doing this but been excellent!”
