Hillcrest students have been having a blast learning how to use the SD83 set of sport wheelchairs over the past few weeks.
Today, some of our classes were lucky enough to meet Lily Brook, a wheelchair athlete (and student at Jackson). Before playing a game of wheelchair basketball, Lily talked to our students about her experiences participating in wheelchair basketball, wheelchair boxing and sit skiing. We wish Lily the best of luck as she heads to Fort St. John next week to compete as a member of the Zone 2 (Kamloops) wheelchair basketball team in the BC Winter Games!
Having the wheelchairs at Hillcrest has been a fantastic experience for our students. A huge thank you goes out to Laura Paiement (SD83 Healthy Schools Coordinator) for bringing the wheelchairs to our district!
