Thursday, July 28, 64 children from the leisure centers of Nègrepelisse, Verlhac-Tescou, Saint-Étienne-de-Tulmont and Montricoux and from the sports school course took part in disability awareness workshops organized at the Jean-Fleury gymnasium.
In partnership with the Tarn-et-Garonne disabled sports departmental committee, educators from the sports school and the leisure reception departments offered six adapted sports workshops, such as boccia, torball, handi archery archery, handi basketball, blind petanque or even handi rugby. The leisure inclusion referent of the intermunicipal territory also led a time of awareness around autism.
This inter-leisure center day was an opportunity to share a moment of conviviality with the children and their leaders. They addressed a theme that is part of both the educational policy of inclusion advocated via the disability charter by the Quercy Vert-Aveyron community of municipalities and the adapted sport project carried out by the sports school.
The involvement, dynamism and curiosity of the children during this day demonstrated the value of proposing this type of action. This makes it possible to raise children’s awareness of disability and encourages the team of professionals mobilized to renew this event in the years to come.
