Disability Awareness Course

Posted on May 13 2015

Year 5 pupils were lucky enough to be chosen to be involved with the award winning Manchester City Disability Awareness Programme, “One City”.  

This saw them working with MCFC’s Disability Coordinator Paul Kelly, who took them through several classroom sessions, workshops, quizzes and activities.  The programme is designed to increase disability awareness and promote disability in sports through a series of classroom and practical lessons.  The children  learnt about; disabilities that you can see and ones that you cannot, how it feels to be a person with a disability, how to treat people with a disability and how having a disability does not necessarily mean you cannot be involved in team sports and society as a whole.  

In week three, the children were visited by a member of the MCFC disability football team Mike Swindells, an inspirational young man who lost a leg in Afghanistan and has found a new lease of life being part of the MCFC family.  Read more about his story here.

The children gained so much from the programme, not only learning about, and being more aware of, disabilities but they explored feelings of empathy, overcoming obstacles-mentally and physically and the importance of what it means to be part of a team.
