Plunkett St Students Cheer Each Other On
A little rain couldn’t get in the way of fun and friendship this Wednesday during the Charity Bounce Hoops for Harmony program at Plunkett St School. The primary school students learned key life lessons through an interactive basketball program and learned how the principles, skills and training learned on a basketball court the program focuses on teamwork, promoting inclusiveness, and valuing diversity.
Former Harlem Globetrotter Tracy Williams and the Charity Bounce team had a great time with the students along with senior students from Newington College who were there to help run the program and did a great job leading basketball drills and encouraging the younger students as they learned new things. Their confidence and belief in themselves and others grew as they saw what they were able to achieve and the challenges they were able to overcome. Everyone learned about the power of unity in diversity and the power of working as a team.
