Schools disability sports club

Press release   •   Sep 15, 2015 08:18 BST

Children of school age with disabilities are being urged to join a sports club which is celebrating its first anniversary.

The disability sports club, run by Moray Council’s Active Schools section, meets in the games hall at Milne’s High School in Fochabers every Monday from 5.30pm to 7pm during term time.

The aim is to provide a variety of sporting options for primary and secondary school pupils with a physical disability.

The 90-minute session is split into two, beginning with a range of sporting activities followed by the paralympic sport of boccia, which is similar to bowls but adapted to be all inclusive.

The club is linked to Grampian Disability Sport, the governing body for disability sports in the north-east.

Anyone interested in joining or finding out more should contact Active Schools co-ordinator Hein Mijzen on 07966 120516 or e-mail
