Boccia – sessions are held at Milne’s High School

A SPORTS CLUB aimed at school age children with disabilities is celebrating its first anniversary with an appeal for more members.

The Disability Sports Club is run by Moray Council’s Active Schools section and meets weekly during term time in the games hall at Milne’s High School in Fochabers.

Their aim is to provide a wide variety of sporting options for primary and secondary pupils who have a physical disability, with their Monday evening sessions from 5.30pm until 7pm split into two.

A range of general sporting activities is followed by the Paralympic sport Boccia, which is similar to bowls but has been adapted to be all-inclusive.

The club is linked to Grampian Disability Sport, the governing body for disability sport 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 hein.mijzen@moray.gov.uk
