Special Olympics BC has teamed up with Khalsa School, Newton to initiate a series of ‘try-it days’ aimed at engaging members of the South Asian community living in the Lower Mainland. Starting on Saturday, May 5th, Khalsa School, Newton will host five drop in events where members of the community can learn about program offerings, try basic sports skills and speak with members of the South Asian community who are familiar with the organization.
The sessions are aimed at developing motor skills and introducing basic sports activities. Examples include a t-ball station, a “floor curling” station and hand-eye coordination drills using a range of materials
“We’re proud to be involved in this meaningful project, as a school, we pride ourselves in our commitment to developing a better tomorrow for our community” says Khalsa Primary Vice-Principal Satinder Bhatia, “I encourage members of the community to spread the word and motivate their friends and family to attend!” Khalsa Schools are a collection of Sikh Independent Schools with a strong record of participation in sports and academic achievement.
Individuals interested in attending the event are encouraged to contact Chelsea Rogers at Special Olympics BC via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (604.802.4226). For more information about Special Olympics BC and its program offerings, please visit www.specialolympics.bc.ca.
