Students from Wakehurst will attend the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 next month, enjoying the benefits of workshops on adaptive sports and inspirational insights from competitors.
The Invictus Games Sydney 2018 will highlight the ability of wounded, injured and ill defence personnel and veterans.
This is the educational opportunity of a lifetime for students from Beacon Hill Public School, Collaroy Plateau Public School, Cromer Public School and Wheeler Heights Public School. Local students will now have the opportunity to cheer on Invictus athletes and gain a deeper understanding of the healing power of sport.
Almost 200 public schools have signed up for the unique experience, ensuring that communities from across the state are sharing in the Invictus spirit.
One of the most exciting things for a student is when the classroom comes to life and that’s exactly what they will see when competitors from 18 nations compete in sports such as wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, wheelchair rugby and indoor rowing.
This is a fantastic opportunity for young Australians to learn about the nature within our community, the importance of being resilient and the healing power of sport.
The Invictus Games will be held in Sydney from 20-27 October.
